    Check out the Buying and Selling forum on this site. Also check out Ebay.

    Pay attention to the shoes also. Plain black oxfords or bluchers, rounded toes, normal sized sole. Don't wear brogues (shoes with perforations, that is). They should be as discreet as possible.

    Not 100% sure of the name, think it is either 'Hideous' or 'Best Avoided.' At to where to get one, I would check out Please Don't, they have a special on right now.

    Gray shoes with brown laces? Oooo...kay. Pics please. Also, if you know what an Oxford is, there really shouldn't be any doubt about it..?

    I have an Ascot Chang sport coat that has metal buttons. Unfortunately, I lost one today and have no replacements for it. I looked on ebay and did a google search for replacements, with no success. If anyone might have any leads on where to look for one I would be greatly appreciative. Below is a pic of the remaining front button for reference. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Does this look like a true 3 button or a 3-roll-2.5? Can't tell as the roll looks like it wants to fight the third button. Just not sure how much. Yoox continues to screw me with their ridiculous stylist.

    I think I have seen that shirt either in my local Bad Ideas store or in Lester's Cheap Shit Emporium. I can't recall which one.

    Where to get a small shoe horn in Toronto, Canada? One that is small enough to fit in a pocket and doesnt cost much.

    Harry Rosen has one for $10 but they are too long.

    Anyone have any scarf recommendations in the range of $100-150? Preferably with some sort of pattern.

    Many shoe stores would probably give you one of their cheap little shoe horns, with the store's name on it, as advertising and for good will.

    Otherwise, a 6" Kiwi shoe horn runs, like, $1.79 at a discount drug store or similar shop. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if you could pick one up for a buck at a dollar store.

    And I'm sure there are sellers on eBay, offering 10cm shoe horns for $1.99, with free shipping. (I'm sure of it because I just checked, and found them. Yeah, on US eBay, not Canadian eBay, but even so...) 10cm is a hair under 4 inches, which seems pocket sized. At least I can't recall ever encountering shoe horns smaller than that.

    There's one in your pocket already - a credit card, driver's license, etc. I use my driver's license every time I'm at the gym. Works great.
