    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The 13'' hem is a general description I think. It applies to all listed sizes. Can anyone else confirm that the listed sizes are EU? I've looked at other pants from the same brand listed on Barneys, and it seems that the listing varies. One pair has them listed US sizes (goes down to 28), yet goes up to 48. This seems weird.

    Thinking of ordering some shirts from CT Shirts.

    When I try on dress shirts, a 17.5 neck fits me perfectly in the neck.
    Should I upsize 0.5 to account for shrinkage?

    The rise (difference between inseam and outseam) will usually stay the same regardless of the inseam. With good trousers the inseam is usually made super long to begin with anyway, and then finished to the appropriate length. What you need are trousers with a longer rise, which means a different brand or model.

    Bought a PoW checked blazer in just the last month. Its composition is 51%wool, 44%linen, 5%nylon. The thing pills like crazy. I know it's a very loose weave, points of abrasion, etc., but it seems like if I look at this thing cross-eyed there is fuzz everywhere. Is this normal, and will it settle down once the loosest threads work their way out? Should I just bic it and worry about far more important things? Cheers.

    Was it used?

    I would pick off the pilling and not worry about it, really. Cheaper fabrics do tend to pill easier, so I am not sure what the quality is like. All in all it is probably not as noticable to somebody look at you as it is to you look down at it while it is on you.

    Nope, brand new, and not cheap (it's Japanese nylon-inclusion, rather than high street nylon-inclusion). I'll pick away, see if it settles and just wear with insouciance. Cheers.

    I'm looking for a briefcase that's sturdy and fashionable, yet isn't made of animal hide/skin. Does such a thing exist?

    canvas or wool offerings from orvis, filson etc. Some of them don't have leather trim on them. Tend to be a bit on the casual side though...

    Thank you very much, sir. I agree, they do look very casual-- there's no denying that the leather cases are in another class stylistically, but I'm hoping to find some good options elsewhere.

    That shirt shouldnt be worn, full stop. Not sure either of those ties should either; the one on the right might be bearable in the unlikely even that it doesn't look too cheap.

    If you MUST wear that shirt, solid grey wool tie.

    Tie on the right isn't completely terrible, could be worn with a solid summer weight SC/Blazer (pref navy) and a PLAIN white shirt, but even then its a bit iffy
