1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Any suggestions on a good summer sportscoat for less than $200.

    An Oxxford? Absolutely.

    I just had a wristwatch strap replaced. How do I go about preventing the strap from becoming all worn from the buckle?

    How difficult (expensive) would it be to re cut a long suit jacket to a regular? Also, is this commonly done?

    Thanks.

    I've contemplated this on a nice jacket i've seen on steep discount. Button & pocket placement seems to be what most people point out as being problematic. That and the fact that if the pocket depth is too close to the bottom of the coat, it will be extremely difficult for a tailor to reduce the length. Maybe a pic with the jacket on will be a good judge of how well the alterations will go?

    Yeah, I would say anything more than 1/2" you're getting into trouble.

    I think 1/2 would work perfectly as I'm right on the cusp between reg and long...only 6 ft tall but have 35 sleeves...is it something that most tailors can do?

    I have asked a few tailors about it, and they do not seem to think it would be too much of a big deal to do. It should not be difficult to find a tailor that is willing to do it.

    It's a nice suit but it does look dated.

    Kent would be the natural choice. But I have found that Kiwi horsehair brushes you can find anywhere do just fine.

    Anything with soft bristles. The hard ones are too aggressive, imo.

    Thanks, the CC20 looks like a good alternative then. Even good for suits yes?
