    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Should I expect the following problem to resolve itself:

    Allen Edmonds #5 last is the slightest bit tight, width-wise, on both of my pinky toes; a slight enough pinch that I would guess a jump from D to E would be to much. Will the leather stretch out as I wear the shoes?


    They will stretch out, though it takes time. To have an immediate result, you can always bring them to any cobbler to have them stretched (width-wise, or in any way you want) for under $10.

    I found some second hand shoes on the internet but am not sure if it is shell or not, it's in the burgundy color.

    Did Allen Edmonds have a Shell #8 with brogue/blucher/captoe? They don't seem to now, but I thought maybe they did in the past.

    My new AEs are doing the same thing. I am letting my feet shape them and it is working quite well. The tightness has eased up only after a week or so of wear. They are #2 lasts.

    Has anyone made their own tie?
    Tiecrafters can do this for you.

    Can't tell without picture. You can post a picture of the crease.

    Any tips on how to get the smell of sunscreen off clothes?

    I have a few casual shirts that smell of Coppertone from a recent Carribean trip. I've laundered them with regular detergent, but it didn't do much.

    can anyone tell me what is the most elegant type of cuff to have with spread collar shirts. i think french cuffs appropriate, but would button cuffs look good?

    French cuffs are most elegant but I think the mitered button cuff is handsome as well (I prefer button cuffs)

    For a professional job interview (associate attorney position), all other things being equal, would you wear a pinstriped or solid suit?

    I bought a "british khaki" linen suit. I'm trying to decide what to wear with it...

    I'm thinking medium/light blue gingham shirt, navy knit tie, and white bucks. Would this look good?

    Single buttons are fine. (What is mitered, btw?)

    What makes a collar fold and fall down just over the button.

    You can see this shirt is almost doing it, but i have some older shirts that are horrible for this.
    I need to keep a tie knot very tight and the tie up high to keep the collar from dropping.

    Anyway to fix or know what causes it?
