    I've seen a wool suit that I really like, but the waist of the coat is about 1" too small. Is it possible/advisable to have it let out (provided there's enough fabric)? Thanks.

    Recently scored a couple pair of Florsheim Imperial Longwings v cleats (finally in my size!). Wondering what the best way to preserve the soles would be? Would normally just hit the road in em, but can these soles be rebuilt if need be?

    Not with the v cleats (but those kill floors anyway), but like any other high quality welted shoe, they can be resoled fairly easily.

    Whats the purpose of the 3 stitched lines on the back of gloves? Do they offer some structural advantage or are there merely for fashion?

    that's what i thought at first, but they seem closer to 9.5. but now that i look at the stamp again, i think you might be right. it just seems to be printed oddly.

    I was watching a James Bond movie the other day, and I like the shoes Pierce Brosnan wears. I think they are Church monk strap. Does any department store carry them? Are they good quality?

    Are Shoe Cabinets that rotate out (see picture) safe to use for dress shoes?

    Seems the shoes will be wedge vertically in those tight spaces once you close the cabinet.

    Where did you get this btw? Looks quite useful.

    British cuts are not my cup of tea -- bit stodgy compared to sleek Italian cuts -- but yes recent Bond has been mostly Church and John Lobbs.

    If you want to be inspired by Pierce Brosnan's style, have a look at Remington Steele reruns. The man was bloody super-sharp.

    Just purchased these chinos for summer. [​IMG] I absolutely love the colour, but am unsure about what colour shirt/tshirt/shoes to pair them with. Any suggestions?

    Are all ties suppose to have dimples or only silk ones? I'm finding it impossible to create one in my alpaca tie.
