Does anyone know where I can find snoseal in Toronto? I can order from Amazon, but shipping is $13!
I´ll post some pics in tomorrow and let you judge it then.
I recently came across a great double breasted navy pinstriped suit. Unfortunately the pants are ill fitting, and I'm left with just the jacket. Normally this would be discarded or given away, but I just can't bring myself to do it. It fits perfectly (which is incredibly hard with me), has a trim cut, and generally, could make an a great sport coat. Now, can I do this? It basically has everything working against this (double breasted, peaked collar, pinstripes...at least it's a great navy), but the fit and look do seem to work. I'm a young guy in the creative industry, so perhaps I can pull it off... or am I just deluding myself?
Can't say anything about the brand or quality, but it looks good to me. If the fit is okay, I'd say: get it. Water proof too, right?
If the trou can't be tailored, donate it. Sometimes the best edits are the most painful.
If you have to ask...
Which suit is better for a med school interview?
Charcoal with muted pinstripes or solid medium gray?
Go with the medium grey, you look more approachable / likeable.
With that style suit go with the charcoal. It looks less like a costume and up the formality.
Charcoal fits you better in the sleeves.
Stupid question, but how does sizing work for a work coat. If I wear a 42R should I buy a 44R since I may be wearing a suit jacket underneath some of the time?
Labels pictured below from an Italian made Harrods sports jacket - do any of you recognize the labels? I'd love to know who made this for Harrods.
All the best

I've switched from using kiwi to a quality cream on my boots, but in the process of getting used to how much to apply now, I've definitely over done it. Now a bit of the color will transfer to a white towel. I've tried rubbing them down pretty vigorously to get all the excess off, but still there's just a little bit. Is there anything that can be done?
