    ^ Should you need a whole drawer for that? I stored mine rolled in drawers.

    Yes. I was trying to be cheap.

    I just got a pair of antique cufflinks and one of the links is missing the little bar at the end that holds it on the other side of the cuff. Anyone know who/where I can get it fixed? also, I have another pair that the working mechanism came off the top of the link. It needs a little 'spot welding'?? or somehow to get it back on. Any ideas /suggestions wld be appreciated. You can PM me.

    Thanks, gentlemen!

    is adding some waist supression to a suit jacket a big deal?

    like, should I find a suit maker to do it, or can any seamstress do it?

    It is not a difficult alteration. That said, I never cease to be amazed by the ability of alterations tailors to screw up even the smallest jobs. Because of that, I use a higher-end alterations tailor for pretty much any alteration I need done.

    i kind of live away from any cities, so all i can find is seamstresses, haha.

    I'm having a friend of my grandmas hem a pair of trousers for me, she said she could also alter a jacket, so if she does a good job on the trousers, i'll see if she can do it. then again, it took some convincing to get her to hem the pants with very little/no break, so i can only imagine how long is going to take to convince her to add a good amount of waist suppression to a jacket.

    Looking for a fitted navy blazer to buy for my little brother's birthday. He's a 38R and has a build that would be quite similar to what BoO makes, so the "fitted" component is rather important. Ideally available in Toronto but i have no problem having it shipped in.
    To clarify, I am looking for a classic type navy blazer with styling similar to this: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_DvyYQdnG-5...avy+Blazer.jpg

    I had also considered paying for him to get one MTM.

    Thoughts?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    That would certainly qualify as CBD*, perhaps even UCBD**.

    * Conservative Business Dress
    ** Ultraconservative Business Dress


    Do you think it would be appropriate for attending a wedding?

    A wedding tie would be better, but that combo would be better than about 80% of what I see at weddings.

    Yeah. Normally I go to weddings and the guys look like complete shlubs. The men at the wedding I went to over the weekend were actually dressed better than what I normally see.

    Has anyone bought from the AE Shoe Bank since the Mequon store closed? I used to e-mail [email protected] for availability/prices, and then place my order by phone. Now I don't know who to e-mail. I tried e-mailing [email protected], but didn't get a response.
