    I came across a pair of RL chinos at a thrift that had black printing on the inside of the pants in the area of the right back pocket with military specifications. The label was white with black lettering. Any idea as to what they might be. I should have snapped a couple of pics.

    Burgundy (very versatile) or chili.

    I bought these in tan. They look better in person but are pricey at retail. Opinions? I can return them:

    I bought this sport coat from BB a few months ago. It's made out of cotton, which I'm not crazy about, but the fit is just about perfect. I've worn it maybe four or five times, no alterations, and I've just now noticed the worst "puckering" in the back, as though it's grown a spine or something. ("Puckering" seems like the wrong word, but I don't know how else to describe it.) This pic is way overexposed, but it really highlights the problem:

    I took a few more pics here: Back, better exposure. Inside construction.

    Any ideas on how this could be fixed? The tag says to dry clean only, and not to iron. I've done neither, but this being cotton, I would consider ironing it if I knew that it would work and not destroy the coat. I also recognize that all of the unevenness tracks the seam, leaving me to wonder if the real problem lies in what may just be a cheap construction, in which case there might not be much I can do.

    For those of you who own Turnbull and Asser shirts with the 3 button cuff - can you please measure and PM me or post the length of the cuff? My bespoke shirts are 2 button (vertical) and 3 inches long. Deciding whether to go 3.25 or 3.5 inches on the 3 button cuff. Thanks.

    ("Puckering" seems like the wrong word, but I don't know how else to describe it.)

    'Puckering' is actually perfectly correct. If a pressing doesn't help then you could take it back to BB and see what they say, it could be a construction defect.

    Zara Navy two button blazer wool 100% or GAP dark grey two button cotton twill sportscoat, which would be better? Former on 40$ local, latter on 30$ local.
