    You mean the welt of the breast pocket actually has a seam up the middle where the dart intersects it? That is not normal. Even if the dart extended past the bottom of the pocket it is closed in the front part before the welt is then added and the pocket cut through, there is no good reason to actually have a split in the welt. Can you post a photo of this pocket?

    I was able to move the lining of the pocket free from the dart so I snipped the top stitch and removed it. Maybe it was just basting? I was hesitant to snip it at first because it wasn't the regular white basting thread. Oh well, fixed now!

    Look at their past history, ask relevant questions about the items you want to buy and see how fast they get back to you. A lot it is trust on both sides as well. In order to post an item for sale here, a person has to be a member for 45 days so that should weed out a lot of scammers. Also, if any of the members scam then news of it should get out pretty quickly.

    Hey y'all, should a long-sleeve sweater/cardigan's sleeves should fit over (completely cover) a shirt's sleeves*? E.g.; Long sleeve V-neck over OCBD.

    *assuming neither are folded/rolled up/pushed up.

    No, you want to show about as much cuff as you would with a jacket -- 1/4", 1/2", whatever.

    What about when worn with a blazer/sports coat over?

    Just bought a pair of NWOT Bostonian shoes yesterday from my local GW and wanted to get some info on them. They are made in the USA vintage wingtips as far as I can tell but any other info would be great.

    I like to pull my sweater sleeves up a little so that they hit about the halfway point between the shirt and jacket cuff. Adds a nice little layer of detail.

    Since this board has made me thoroughly sick of looking at dudes, I'm using a photo of Esther Quek to demonstrate:

    I've heard that if you're wearing a pocket square you shouldn't have your glasses in that pocket and vice versa...what's the rule if any?

    Thanks...I've been doing both lately for convenience.

    Probably made by Bostonian themselves, back when they were a quality brand. A lot of shoe companies moved downmarket as the market for high end menswear dried up, with the world moving more casual and more pressure on cost from cheap goods in china. Bostonian was never as good as many others, but they made a much better shoe than they do now. Those are a nice pair of New Old Stock shoes, probably from the 60's or 70's. The 80's were when the move downmarket really began in earnest, though I don't know Bostonian's history as a company specifically.

    I need suggestions for a watch.

    I work as a statistician/programmer at a tech company, and I generally dress business casual, though I'm technically free to wear jeans to work every day if I want (and most guys do - think silicon valley start-up). I've never really owned a watch and being a technologically savvy person, I prefer a smart phone. However, I am thinking that a watch might be good to have. Something basic and small, which is more for show/fashion than for 'telling' time. I'm thinking of something with swiss quartz and a leather band.

    Any ideas?

    having no idea your budget... seems like this might be an ok quartz for you given your techie feel.. about $300 (although most on here will hate this I presume :lol:)

    or maybe this is more dressy.... about the same price

    Hey guys, looking for some advice on this blazer I bought:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I feel it's a bit too big, and I think the sleeves are a bit long. The man at the store insisted it was the proper fit all around. And there were plenty of sizes of the same blazer, so it's not like he was just selling me this just to sell it to me. Being new to this type of fashion, I took his word for it, and he was a well dressed man himself, so I figured he knew what he was talking about.

    I'm wondering how you think it fits in the shoulders and midsection.

    I appreciate any insight.

    Wanted to get a quick opinion on a pair of Harris shoes I just got that were marked down a bit at Barney's. I'm not sure if they are too narrow or not. Any thoughts? I'm still somewhat young and I'm trying to balance between bleeding edge trendy and traditional. I'm planning to wear them with my navy RLBL suit or dark jeans and a navy custom Italian cut blazer and hoping to keep them part of my rotation for a few years to come with care. I think they are a little too much for trousers or dark/crisp jeans and just a nice shirt without a blazer or jacket. I can still take them back since I haven't worn them out yet, but wanted an opinion before I decide. You can see them on Barney's website or the inserted images I took of mine.

    My washing machine has two settings-- "wrinkle free" and "cotton." What's the difference? Which will be more delicate on my clothes?

    If you have the manual read the manual. My guess is that the wrinkle free setting keeps your clothes slightly damper when finished so they can be hung to dry. Probably not as intense of a spin cycle.
