    Thanks, that sounds like good advice.

    If I work out and bulks up in the shoulders, will I not fit in my jacket anymore? I realize that the chest and waist can be affected, but can one really affect the shoulders that much? I'm talking about a reasonable workout routine, 2-3 days a week for a year.

    Has anyone tried the following product on leather soled shoes? It seems like it would work as a replacement for getting the whole front of the shoe topied for ~$30 at the cobbler. I am also thinking of cutting these up and putting strips in the front of the shoe instead of the toe protector, to keep it from wearing too quickly. It is $3 on ebay.

    I tried these, and they suck. They look bad, offer almost no improvement in traction, don't help the wear much, and come off in a few days.

    This a jacket I have that has a small tear in the fabric. It's 48/38/14 linen / wool / silk blend.

    Do you think this is something that could be easily mended? If so, who does this type of work and is there a ballpark cost?

    Thanks!

    I have heard that this place in NYC is one of the best for reweaving the fabric to almost unnoticeable. I have never had this done, but I would imagine the cost is considerable. For cheap you could get it patched from the inside, however you will see stitches and such. It can't hurt to reach out to these guys though. If you do, post some info here for the rest of us.

    when I was regularly selling on ebay, I always found the best solution was to eat your losses and move on. You can spend a lot of time, energy and grief trying to prove your case and maybe have paypal find in your favor or you can just move on and make up what you lost here on something else. Ebay is what it is and sometimes you are the baby, other times you are the diaper.

    I'm looking for an all leather burgundy wingtip oxford lace up shoes. I have a pair of Florsheim that I find comfortable and I'd like to stay in the $180-275 range. Where should I look for a shoe like that? I want something with more design and not a plain shoes. Thanks
