    So if I'm putting time and effort into caring for my new shoes, should I put a bit of effort into caring for the matching belts?

    I know it gets less wear, not being on my feet and all, but it's leather, too. Maybe a little conditioner every few months? Does anybody apply shoe care principles to other leather products? A quick search brought up some posts about caring for jackets and wallets, but I saw no mention of belts.


    A little conditioner every now and then will do the trick. The best available in this country is Pecard Leather Dressing. It isn't cheap, but it is the best.

    How do you make sure an OCBD collar roll keeps its shape? What are the preferred washing and storing procedures? Does one never iron the collar?

    Unfortunately I can't afford mannequins or bespoke hangars at the moment. I browsed the collar roll thread but it seems to be mostly exposition and nothing concerning maintenance. Advice is appreciated.

    AFAIK Boss doesn't sell anything not fused. I am definitely not an expert though.


    I'm pretty sure some selection suits are canvassed, and some of them are pretty nice (there was one on B&S shortly)

    Looking for this tie.
    It's a grey wool Prince of Wales check. I thought it would be easy to find but I can't seem to find one to buy. Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Who haves any idea how much Kiton or Brioni will charge for a made-to-measure overcoat?

    I recently bought my first nice suit. It is a navy pinstripe and has a lot of color in it - Purple, light blue, dark blue, charcoal, even a thread of an "orangey" color. What might be the best matches for this fabric - I assume I can match these colors, but are there colors that I should absolutely avoid due to all the colors?

    RL shirts comes in three different sizes (classic fit-->custom fit-->slimmest fit). I'm using slim fit shirts, since the other two (classic and custom) is to big. Also using small in Ralph Lauren sweaters. I don't understand why Ralph Lauren have marked some of their sweaters with "Custom fit". Here is two examples: Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Tee Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Polo A Ralph Lauren sweater like this one, in small, fits me perfectly. Would these "custom fit" sweaters fit me? or too big?

    The jacket should completely cover your backside. Aside from that, you should be able to cup your hands under the sides of the jacket; but a word of warning: do what looks best, not what the rules dictate.

    Some people look better with a slightly shorter jacket, or slightly longer depending on build and height; but I've given you the general guide.


    Thanks a lot!

    Washing BB non-iron dress shirts - want to make sure I'm doing it right.

    1) Take out collar stays, unfold collar(unbutton, too?)
    2) Cold, delicate, light detergent
    3) Tumble dry delicate 5-10 minutes
    4) Hang dry(smooth out wrinkles with hand(should I restructure collar here or once dry?)

    Thanks for any tips
