    I wear a 6EE in most Allen Edmonds shoes (various lasts). I was wondering if Aldens are similar sized compared to AE. Wider? Longer? etc.

    More specifically I'm looking for Monk Strap Oxfords and other styles not available in AE.

    Thanks

    I'm a Newbie to this forum, and hope I'm posting this correctly. Question: How do you determine the age of a Vintage Versace belt? I am seeing them referred to as "pre death" and I figure that affects the value. Here are photos of a belt I have and would love to know more about it. TIA

    It's hard to google if you dont know the name of the person, to find out his shop [​IMG].

    new to the forum and learning would this be considered a good year round blazer? if not please explain

    Yes, a medium-weight blazer is about as close to a year-round blazer as you can get.

    I am developing a fondness for not ironing my linen shirts and their crepe appearance. Also, I have always classified rayon as a synthetic fabric which I consider as a group to be low class (except for exotic hiking running fabrics).

    As you can see it's just sort of flimsy looking and it is. I tried to take an iron to it but ehhh....
    I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to restore it a little better?


    Sorry, man. Welcome to the world of the incredibly shitty ASOS house brand. Live and learn.

    I have 3 made-to-measure suits that I'm fairly unhappy with. Among my concerns are:

    1) Low arm-openings (as opposed to high and trim arm openings)
    2) Shoulder padding (when I specifically requested none)

    My quick-questions are:

    Are these correctable errors at a local tailor? I'm almost certain that the shoulder padding issue is correctable but not so sure about the arm openings.

    LA recommendations to have this fixed? West-side preferred.

    Thanks.
