    Thank you very much for this. I ordered straight from AE.

    I went with a blue large herringbone patterned shirt, it turned out pretty good actually.


    Carmina. Mind the size though, I bought my GF a pair of Trickers Stow look-a-likes from them and they where way to small, even though I took her boot size.

    I don't think there is any such rule that can be applied across all brands and all lasts. The only way you can know for sure is to try a pair on.

    Is this suit jacket too tight? Its a slim fit, the shoulders are perfect, but my pecs are a bit big and i notice there's an X forming around the button.

    Noob question
    The labels at the back of some of my ties have sharp edges. They're not as sharp as a blade, but have tiny little spikes which damage the ties. Should I remove them?

    Is there a thread on here that discusses how to properly condition and waterproof a leather jacket? Or could anyone recommend a method?

    Thanks. I actually realized the case is brass, not goldtone, which makes me happy -- and explains why i didnt think about it at the time. Brass is more 'rugged' looking. There arent any discussions about brass watches at all on SF.

    Hi,

    I usually prefer shoes with a more of a narrowish toe, can you give me your opinions about the following Bals.
    1. Loake ALDWYCH
      http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produ...&shoeid=2388&selectedSizeid=0&selectedFitid=0
      Although not as highly rated, in my opinion it is a very attractive shoe and the cap toe is not as short/small as the Park Avenues.
    2. Cheaney Sloane, http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/produ...3&shoeid=858&selectedSizeid=0&selectedFitid=0


    I tried hard to convince my self about buying the AE Park Avenues, but somehow the (smallish) toe bothers me.

    Thanks
