    Where can I get dress belts in small sizes? I typically wear around 27-28 pants. I usually end up on the second to last or last hole on size 30 belts after they stretch from wear.

    You can try Narragansett leathers as they'll make them to your specs. I just ordered one and waiting on it right now, but reviews I read seemed pretty positive.

    They look nice, but I wouldn't say any of them are really dress belts.

    Do you gents know the steps it will take to delete one's profile and posts on here, or who the right person to contact is?

    Meaning no offense, but perhaps the Boys' or Ladies' department at some retailers?

    Or maybe you could buy a somewhat longer belt and have it cut down.

    Me, I wore a Beltmaster dress strap (no holes) today. But I don't know what Beltmaster's minimum size is (and I'm sure no 27-28", myself).

    surprised nobody's already mentioned Equus Leather, one of the SF affiliate vendors. You can customize length. I have three of their belts and am very happy with them.

    Quite a few London establishments provide extra trousers with their suits - Ede & Ravenscroft for example.

    No offense taken, I will definitely check out some department stores.

    This looks perfect, except none of them have the aesthetic that I want other than the lined and raised calf leather belt which is a bit out of my price range. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

    Uncreased wool trousers don't work well. They can be part of a pure-D, true English country look -- literal "shooting at things from horses" territory, and not really applicable beyond that. Or, they can be an old-timey laborer's look, but really? Don't be that guy.

    So, they're not really traditional. And I don't like them, either.

    In that case an alternative is to have your existing belt shortened, ideally from the buckle end.

    Is it ever okay to wear a yellow cashmere v-neck sweater? Something such as this shade...obviously a lacuna in my collection:

    (Or am I suffering from early onset seasonal affective disorder!!)

    I think it'd be fine with cream chinos chinos and a light blue shirt in a very summery sense. Or layered under darker colours for a spot of colour - why not?

    I have a brooks brothers extra slim fit shirt and a slim burberry tie. I use a four in hand knot and what I've noticed is that directly below where the knot is the tie does not cover the middle part of the shirt completely (placket). Is this okay? Seems like there is no way a slim tie + slim knot would cover it.

    My first thought is "Oy, that's bright" but my next one is "I like it". I think you could pair it with some darker blues and browns and it would be great for fall.

    For some reason, I feel exactly the same way.

    I want a yellow v-neck. More of a yellow oxford/lemon sorbet color than that, though.

    But yeah, if you look good in that color. I'd stick to, say, a white OCBD and cream, tan, or khaki cords. Maybe a tatersall shirt could work, as could the right jeans.

    I've got a spring wedding tomorrow (I'm in Australia) and I'd like to go a bit out of my comfort zone and wear a pink shirt (instead of white or pale blue) with a navy knitted tie.
