    Hey fellas. I recently purchased a tailored fit oxford from Land's End. I ordered a 33 sleeve length and I normally wear a 32/33 sleeve in dress shirts. I was thinking a 32 length would be too short. What do you guys think of the sleeve length of this shirt? Thanks. http://yfrog.com/20img5580vj http://yfrog.com/fvimg5579j

    Looks fine to me in terms of length. How much cuff do you like showing when you were a jacket over the shirt? Depending on how you have your sleeves tailored, that seems like it could show as much as an inch, but that's alright.

    I toyed around with that idea, but I balked when trying to figure out different ties for the seersucker.
    Unless you're set on bows, check out the linen ties from Howard Yount (SF member chorse123). I have two and they are great summer ties, would be perfect with seersucker.

    A lot of the silk ones look like they'd work pretty wool with seersucker, too.

    Just tried it on with a suit and about 1/2 inch of cuff is showing, so I guess it's about right.

    I have a pair of Allen Edmonds Strand color Brown Burnished Calf. I've worn them a few times but I have not treated them with anything and need to find out what the best type of products to use are. Cream, Polish, etc. What should I put on now for everyday protection and what products, methods should I use/do for cleaning/polishing?

    In the pinned "HOF: Glossary of terms/ Best posts/ FAQ/ Links" thread in the Men's Clothing forum, there is a link to a thread by Ron Rider on shoe care. It has all the information you need.

    How can I spot differences between a man's checkbook and female checkbook [wallet/cover]?
    I'm looking for a leather and slim one, that holds the checks and cards that's all.
    This are only carried in jacket am I right?

    Thanks.

    Is it okay to iron/steam a cashmere sport coat? I recently got one in the mail and the sleeves are wrinkled. I am scared to iron it out of fear of causing damage.

    No it is not ok. Hang the coat up and let the fabric relax.

    If you doubt this advice do a SF search for "jeffreyd" and steam and you'll find threads talking about the damage you can do by ironing a jacket. Also, do not steam the jacket in the bathroom.
