    Only if they don't cut the fabric doing the alteration.

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong place, but I am looking into buying a vintage Louis Vuitton Suitcase (circa 1950s). If anybody has experience with them, feedback would be much appreciated.

    The one that fits perfect. Every time.

    EDIT: Provided of course you can afford it.

    Well, I guess it also depends on how important money is to you, how much you have to spend on the item. That matters to some people, but not to everyone.

    Finding a jacket with a perfect fit is priceless, certainly at the meager margin cited above. There's no guarentee an alterations tailor will be able to recreate the perfect fit of the first jacket, and even if so, the cost of the tailor will eat away the savings of buying the ill-fitting jacket anyway. I feel it makes no sense at all.

    The difference in price is in the order of 900-1000 dollars.

    Yeah, that's pretty meaningful. Can you afford it? Is the full price gonna hurt?

    Are textured shirts appropriate for business wear? Casual wear? The twill diamond weave pattern is a little bit flashy.

    Depends on the industry, but I would say for majority that profess to "business casual", that is perfectly fine.

    I'm a fan of wearing pastel colors during Summer days. What about a Summer night out? Specifically dinner and walk around downtown, while wearing a jacket like this with jeans.

    I thought that a lot of black tie shirts were textured. Gues it depends onthe texture and color.

    Oh, at those numbers, I change my answer. :embar:

    I would buy neither a less expensive jacket that fits so so, nor would I buy a perfect fitting jacket that costs thousands.

    I think so, but I tend to think that many if not most current styles of sunglasses are too big for most people's faces.

    Hey everyone, I hope this is the right place for this. Didn't want to make a thread just for it. I'm looking for these loafers or something very similar. Can anyone help?

    Those are horsebit loafers, or bit loafers as they're more commonly known these days. Gucci made 'em famous (and that's probably what the pair pictured are), but you can find them from most makers these days, at pretty much any price point.

    Re: the glasses above - Lens size looks fine. The nose bridge looks too wide.

    What do you guys use to care for leather watch bands and straps?
    Between shoe polish, cream and conditioner, conditioner seems to be the best one as it doesn't crack, flake or stain shirt cuffs. Is there something better, like mink oil or saddle soap, or some specialized product that maybe gives water resistance?

    Shoe trees:

    What is the difference (functional ?) between split toe and full toe shoe tress?

    Is there a benefit or preference of one style over other?
