    Any threads with last-ditch tips for removing (coffee) stains from pants? Will the soak-this-in-oxiclean-til-judgement-day trick work on coffee stains?



    And if not... Turning slim-fitting dress khakis into shorts: doable or no?

    Are the pants washable? If so, I would definitely give Vman's method a try. If not you can just take a oxyclean to it with a really soft toothbrush and gentle scrubbing. Also, they have little bottles at the supermarket for specific stains. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=4084 As for the slim fitting Khakis -> shorts. Just one question, do you have a bike?

    Thanks. I'd seen that thread, but it seemed to be mostly about removing collar and pit stains. The pants are washable, though, so I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try.

    And no, I don't have a bike, but I do live in San Francisco [​IMG]

    For those that wear dress shirts everyday is 19 dress shirts too many? I need room in my closet.

    Someone already said no, but I'm saying you don't need that many. If you have enough shirts that you can go 2 weeks without doing the laundry, you have enough.

    Obviously there's nothing wrong with having lots of shirts, but if you need closet space then I think getting rid of some of them is pretty appropriate.

    I just spent 100 dollars on a pair of burgundy Bass loafers. It's my first pair of burgundy shoes. I already have black and brown belts to match my (nicer) black and brown shoes. Should I buy a burgundy belt now?

    Can dirty bucks and saddle shoes be worn year round or are they seasonal?

    Ideally, yes a burgundy belt, however depending on the shade of burgundy most people can get away with a brown, or black belt if the color is close. If the burgundy is more red, then I think you have to get the burgundy belt.

    quick question: What are the most common/popular/affordable shoe trees? I'm looking to get a new, decent enough pair (cedar) but am not particicularly looking to pay out the ass for them.

    as a 21 year old, I have had a hard time upgrading my wardrobe with more professional dress.

    Where is a good place to start looking for 33x36 dress pants (multiple colors), and a 38L slim navy suit.....on the cheap

    I get my shoe trees from Jos A Banks. They are always on sale for less than $15.

    Nordstrom Rack has good quality shoe trees for $12.99 a pair.

    Good pair of versatile dress shoes for a 20 year old starting a more professional wardrobe?

    There are certainly people who consider them to be seasonal. I think it depends partly on where you live and partly on how beholden you are to such traditions. I live in Los Angeles, and I dress for the weather rather than the season: if it's 70+ degrees out, I'll wear white bucks even if it's February.
