    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.

    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?

    Hi
    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?
