    I have a very nice white 100% Egyptian cotton shirt, but I usually sweat in the pits. An undershirt makes me look too bulky no matter how tight I get them. Are there any alternatives? Pit guards?

    How much wider should the shoulder measurement on an overcoat be than the measurement on the suit. I.e. if the suit is 19" across the shoulder what should the overcoat be?

    I went to a store and tried on some Clarks Desert Boots. The largest size they had were 11D US. There was some pressure in the areas shown below, I know that this will loosen up over time but should I order a half size larger just to stay safe?

    Only if the wedding it outdoors. If the wedding is indoors you must take it off.

    First off, just remember that how the shoe feels to you is worth far more than my advice. But with that said, I would stick with the smaller size. I really would be surprised if they did not stretch out. If they are painfully uncomfortable, however, you could always go up half a size and stick in an insole or get a tongue pad.

    Luke: see if the store will order another size without a commitment on your part. I would at least prefer to know how the 11 1/2 fits before going with the smaller pair.

    Depends on your personal taste and what's already in your wardrobe. Both would be nice choices in a vacuum.

    Anyone can help me out...

    Looking for waist and hip measurements on a TB1 OCBD:

    This would be the ideal shirt I would want to use as reference compared to the one above ^

    Right now I am estimating :(

    That's my immediate impulse as well, but I'm a total convert to having shirts made where I can feel the fabric first. Maybe you can get swatches sent.
