    Hi guys, I'm fairly young and new.

    Invested in a pair of moccasins recently and would like some tips on how to take care of it and prevent cracking.

    Thank you.

    In England Charles Tyrwhitt is selling them at the moment at a reasonable price. I bought a couple and they're pretty good; my only quibble is the blue and white striped CT house lining on the inside of the cuffs, which shows up if you roll them up and is a bit obvious.
    thank you. couldn't find one in white though. I guess I should have been more precise.
    still need help.

    sorry i posted this on the main forum, but need a super quick reply...

    I'm about to buy a Navy RLBL 40R online but realized the trouser size will be a 34 waist. I'm normally a 31 waist and wear a 38R but with RLBL i need to size up.

    Will a good tailor be able to appropriately reduce the waist size without distorting the design of the pants at a reasonable cost? I'm worried that even if i reduce the waist from a 34 to a 31 the pants will still be fitted for a bigger guy.

    I could also live with a 32w, would a 34 --> 31/32 waist reduction be too much?


    A tailor can reduce it without a problem

    What was up with all the people selling incotex pants on here a few years ago?
    I bought a pair of incotex from someone here for liek 70bucks.
    Back then, I didn't know how much they are retail(400), and just went with the hype and picked up one of those. Were those pants real?(there were many people selling it big batches at a time)
    How were they able to obtain and sell those so cheap?? Just curious

    What color pants should NOT be worn with brown shoes?
    Black. Anything else can work, depending on the outfit and the shade of the brown.
    Anyone have a suggestion on where to get a cheaper version of the navy striped bar tie (3" width) like the one below: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=&sectionsize=
    Did you try thetiebar.com? http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page....ptionValueIds= They get pretty good reviews.
    Thanks! Any other suggestions?
    Don't even think about dark shirts if you're ever going to be wearing them with a tie. Just a bad idea unless you have a damn good idea of what you're doing. French blue is a nice color though. An ecru (light tan) would be good. Striped oxfords and the like can be fun.

    Is it worth the $650 price? I heard patent leather is a way to hide inferior leather; but they look good. Worth $100 more than retail C&J?

    Don't think it's worth the $650, but I was under the (false) impression that they would be discounted.
