    I'm a small guy (5'7", 120lbs, 34" chest) and I'm looking to buy a new suit. Can anyone suggest lines that might have something off the rack before I start getting involved in MTM?

    Thanks.

    Any suggestions for a simple leather coin pouch? I know in the US you may not have much use for them but here in Canada we have $2, $1, $.25, $.10., $.05, and $.01 coins. I usually dont bother carrying anything smaller than $.25 coins but it would be nice to keep all my change in its own place in my front pocket. I dont like wallets with coin pouches built in sinc they feel too large. Any suggestions?

    Yup those are the ones. I'm not really a fan myself so can't offer much more in the way of advice/experience, just noticed the polo ones in the catalogue. They have some nice shoes in there.

    Any opinions on these shoes? They are Eduardo G. captoes on sale for 165.00 and appear to be a good deal.

    Anyone know any stores in Toronto that sell the Barbour Liddesdale jacket? I would like to try one on before I buy it but I cant seem to find any stores that sell them.

    I decided against them for now. I think another color combined with a more refined design would be more to my liking.

    The tag says "do not tumble dry," but I didn't notice it until I took the shirt out of the drier. The fabric has ripples throughout. Is the shirt now going to tear or something while I'm wearing it?

    The only problem I see is that it may have shrunk a little...after washing on delicate, I put mine in the dryer on air tumble/no heat to get the water out and then hang dry.

    Then what's all this business about how tumble drying ruins shirts?

    Did I irreparably damage the shirt by tumble drying it?

    Did you tumble dry it in high heat or no heat? What type of fabric is it?

    It's cotton, and I used heat, although I don't know if you'd call it high heat.

    Normally, plain cotton will just shrink. However, some fabric is weaved (or even just the stitching) using different type of threads. They may shrink/stretch in different rates upon exposure to heat, thus rippling. Depending on severity of the problem, it may or may not be curable. Try rewash it in cold water, then hang dry or tumble dry with no heat. If that doesn't help, I don't know what can.
