    you can email to the feedback forum and you can also check the support thread to contact a mod.... you may need to be a senior member before you can start threads... I'm not sure about that but it's probably something like that. You only have 9 posts so you're still new. Hang in there...

    Thank you! I have sent a message. It's just a bit frustrating since I have seen members with less posts starting threads.

    Plus, I don't get a message saying that I need to be here longer to start a thread. It says that since I am new it needs to be reviewed by moderators. It's been over a week. Review it already!! haha

    Thanks again for your help!

    When you guys get your dress shirts tailored, what is the general rule of thumb for how long they will be? I would think that it matters if you're going to be tucking it in or not?

    I think the general rule of thumb is not to mico-manage your tailor. Let their time tested experience do the work. They usually ask if you will be wearing untucked at any time, fwiw.

    The reason I ask is because I bought these fitted dress shirts from Express that could possibly be an inch or so too long but it might not be worth it to pay and get it tailored the extra inch or so

    I think I'll just bring it to the tailor and let her decide if i should leave it

    Honestly, I think you should never have a dress shirt untucked.

    I don't have an issue during the summer with an OCBD that's fairly fitted and has the bottom shortened, but yeah, proper dress shirts really never need to have the tails out.

    People's thoughts on black socks? The poorer and lazier I get, the more I think black socks go with everything.

    Frankly, it's not that much different than navy socks if you ask me and I know many people approve of navy socks with everything.

    Is it possible to remove heel taps without replacing them? I have a pair of shoes with taps that are worn down and make a loud metal sound when I walk.

    I don't know many people who think navy socks go with everything. But black socks surely go with nothing except for black pants, which you 99.9% of the time should not be wearing. It is less stressful to just match your socks as close as possible to your trousers.
