    Does this make sense? Seeing how the Brooks brothers US website have 2 dress shirts for $99 and here in Canada it is 3 for $219 (I think), would it be worth it to get someone to buy 2 shirts in the US and have them shipped to Canada, even after the price of shipping you should still come out ahead right?

    Hi,
    I'm looking for some Charcoal suede shoes, pretty much like these - can anyone give me some pointers?
    Appreciate it

    Why not buy these actual shoes?

    Why are some of the thread titles highlighted and underlined?

    AFAIK all titles are underlined. By "highlighted" I assume you mean bolded. If something isn't bolded it means that you have viewed it since the last poster, or it's 10(?) days since the last poster commented. @Xanatos, I'm partial to the penny loafers, they look a bit less casual. If you want something a bit more casual I'd go with the bit. They're pretty damn similar, though, it's just a matter of taste and what you already have.

    How much larger is a size small Band of Outsiders shirt compared to an XS? I feel kind of silly saying this, but I've started heavily working out these last few months and it would appear I can no longer flex without my XS shirt restricting my biceps, just to give you an idea of how snug it is around the arms. I still like the way the shirt fits and looks, but if sizing up is going to be just a SMIDGE bit larger, I think it might be worth it in the long run?

    I'm pretty hopeless with this kind of stuff. Any help would be appreciated.

    Whats the standard size of buttons on a SC ? I am thinking of buying some from here but the sets come in 3 sizes 24/30, 24/32 and 24/36.

    Thanks for your help.

    They're Grensons, but I'm guessing some older collection. I can't find em anywhere.
    Anyone know anything?

    I chose 24/32. Just measure the buttons you like of a suit or jacket you own. Measurements:

    From: www.schneiderknopf.de.
    (Min. order is 25 pieces.)


    I ordered these some time ago:

    You're welcome. Per type. So for a jacket or suit you have to buy 25 large ones and 25 small ones.

    ^^ Thanks, I tinkered around on their website and figured as much. I tried to order but according to their order form they only bill to 5 european countries. I have emailed them to check if they would ship to India and the cost thereof.

    Lets see

    Thanks again

    I own a jacket that fit me a tad big on the shoulders, but right on spot on the chest. Sent it to the tailor to take in the shoulder a bit. Now the shoulders fit fine, but the chest is too tight to the point where the lapels bulge out. What happened? I measured the chest and it is still the same.
