    when a suit is fully canvassed, how far downs the length of the suit does the canvass go?
    this is my 4th made to order, canvass goes down to 3rd button of a 3 button suit

    I know I could search, but hopefully someone in this thread would be kind enough to either tell me, or point me towards the answer. In my sig, how do I combine the link I want people to follow w/ it's title? For example, I would prefer my sig to simply read "X for sale" and that 'title' be the link itself, as opposed to it's current state.

    Many thanks!

    Sorry if this isn't the right thread, I'm new here. I bought a pair of Prada stitched oxfords for $444 the other day. Are Prada's worth it for that price? Is there a better Oxford for the money? I've just started learning about shoes, most of mine have been of the disposable variety. The most high-end shoe that I own is the AE MacNeil in Cordovan.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do they make something to re-color the edge of a wooden sole? The front lip of my sole got into a little spat with the sidewalk.

    (Wooden?) They do, but some polish will do the trick. (Wrap some cloth around your finger, get some polish and apply it to the edge.)

    Thanks for the tip, I will give it a shot. If I don't like the results what is the stuff they make to color?

    Well, I'm knew here... I guess by your answer that this is not the type of answer he is expecting?
