    It's the truth and we don't care about superficial things like stains and odours. We read poetry all day.

    Sorry for the lack of information. haha. i'm very ignorant when it comes to shoes and clothing.
    Anyway, the shoes are ermenegildo zegna couture xxx. I believe they're oxfords. It seems like they were scuffed just enough to discolor the leather. I can't tell a difference in the feel of the scuffed leather and the rest of the shoe. I hope i've given you some useful information. Again, i apologize for my ignorance.

    Can you post pictures? That might help.

    Hey, I know this is what is essentially discussed on the forum. But does anyone have any sites that set out new and classic looks from head to toe, the way that GQ do to an extent and Topman do for the new season?

    Im a student so would be more looking at things I could find on the UK High Streets at a reasonable price, but I suppose I could buy the cheaper equivalent anyway.

    Im just kind of short of ideas, and need some inspiration.

    EDIT: Sorry wrong section, Mods feel free to delete.

    Sigh...I guess I deserved that sarcastic snit. I didn't take the time to properly word the question so I guess I offended your fragile sensibilities.

    In no way do I think that generalization of Europeans is accurate. I simply want to know if there are forum members who practice that approach to fashion and how they deal with wardrobe maintenance issues.

    Once again, I apologize to anyone who was offended by the post.

    Does anyone know of an older store called "Saddles?" I keep finding old OCBDs from this store. What happened to it?

    Not offended. Amused. What more have you often heard?

    I have an annoying problem related to finding clothing. I am a very small, slim individual (5' 4'') and am trying to find a nice winter coat. I'm not keen on specific terms, but I'm trying to upgrade my wardrobe a bit and have been looking into "pea coats". However, a SMALL is even too large for me. I turned to shopping online to actually find smalls in what I want, but I've been seeing sizes such as "regular". How am I supposed to shop being such a small individual? I understand that alterations will probably be necessary. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.

    Japanese brands would cater to you while still remaining high in quality with the right brands. In SW&D type clothing, I know some Japanese brands XL is like a slim Medium in US brands.

    Well, I'm glad I amused you as opposed to offending you (no sarcasm meant). Your question would lead me to believe otherwise but in either case can we just move on? I joined the forum to get some insight on fashion and I'm not interested in engaging in casual banter about other topics.

    You're right. Let's get back to the original question.


    It is often said the most Europeans hardly ever wash their clothes and have a small wardrobe consisting of 2-3 complete outfits that they would repeatedly wear during the week.

    Does anyone share this view of fashion and how do you deal with issues like ring around the collar, bad odor, and fabric deterioration.

    Any specific Japanese brands you suggest, in terms of good quality coats?

    Does Lambswool shrink when washed? I know dry cleaning is preferred, but the piece in question (a cardigan) is washable, and a tad large for me, so I wouldn't mind if it shrunk a bit. Just curious.

    Thanks.

    ........I meant generally speaking....as if I'm an 8.5 on a scale, would I be an 8.5 in Sutors?

    There are reviews on STP. I like to read the ones from Conservative, yet Stylish, High-end shoppers, as they tend to know what they are talking about. People like this guy:

    I'm sure this is covered somewhere, but I couldn't find it...
    Anyone know of resources that teach on how to shorten (buttondown) shirts? I would like to cut down on current and future expenses, since most shirts tend to be long. Thanks.

    Why not just take it to a tailor? It is like $10.
