    Do yourself a favor and pass on that one. Its atrocious. Is Versace Jeans Couture even a real brand? Something like A/X? Yikes

    It is a real brand, and that shirt is authentic. It is higher than A/X, more like Emporio Armani.

    This guy has a $400 versace shirt that will probley just be thrown away if not bidded on, the only problem is a slight minor fade at the very tip of the collar... Is there anyway to fix that or is it pretty much screwed? I have heard of dying stuff in a washer, but it has other colors and im gussen it would be ruined.. any thoughts?

    Do you like in Texas or love Dolly Parton?

    This shirt is shockingly ugly..

    Forget about it...

    I just grabbed these suede CJ's from the bay, and I was wondering if any of you can point me to a good suede shampoo? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...:X:RTQ:GB:1123 Also - would the stains go out with the shampoo? Seller says he is selling them due to wrong sizing.

    I seem to always have issues buying belts. If I have a 31/32 size waist what would be the suggestions for a belt? I feel as if I can fit into a 32 but then I only have 1 notch left. If I wear a 34 it tends to be one of the last notches available.... is is recommended to wear a larger belt than waist size?

    Anyone familiar with Rolando Sturlini dress shoes ? http://www.asos.com/Rolando-Sturlini...t=-1&clr=Brown Im wondering how the quality is compared to other brands in the price class of around 165£. Also if anyone can point me the direction of information on how to spot quality in shoes, all I know now is that leather soles are normally a good sign, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Quick question, what would be some of the best colours of jumpers to match a pair of smart dark blue jeans?

    Grey, navy, burgundy, white.

    what do we all think of these?


    Also while we're on the subject, is there any way to get a pair of shoes to fit smaller, i have a pair where the edges are buckling, clearly a sign they're too big right- would insoles help?
    is there any way to reverse the damage

    ^ That looks fine, fashion forward Italian, Paul Smith'esque, good with jeans or casual wear.

    There are 3 traditional methods to make big shoes fit better, depending on how they don't fit you: tongue pad, insoles, and thick socks.

    Google "shrink shoes", and you'll find some detailed instructions. I did it with some inexpensive shoes. Basically, I just soaked them in very hot water, then let them dry in the sun. It worked. They shrunk up a bit, and looked fine after a bit of leather conditioner and polish. I don't know that I'd try this with good shoes, however.

    Quick question about cleaning a suit:

    Last night I had someone spill a ton of beer on me. I just wiped it off with a wet towel, and it's not too noticeable now.

    Is it worth getting it dry cleaned? Or is wiping it down enough?

    It looks fine, but I'm worried that it might end up stained later or something.

    What do you guys think?

    Are you considering that suit for any other reason than the label? It's nothing special.

    My RLPL casual shirt doesn't have the white "made in italy" tag on the left side of the collar as it do on my RLPL dress shirts, is this normal?
