    Would brown (unpleated) trousers go with a pink/blue striped shirt?? What about shoes, brown or black?

    Brown trousers go well with pink shirts, not sure about pink/blue striped, I would probably have to see the shirt and the trousers to judge. With brown trousers you should always wear brown shoes, or possibly burgundy or some other colour, but never black.

    Can someone link me to a thread with good procedures that tells me clean the inside of a steam iron reservoir/water tank? I want to clean mine out because leaking a few months ago. I don't plan on using the steamer setting anymore, and will purchase a spray bottle.

    Well suited for what you're wearing. I'm not a fan of longwings though. Just my preference.

    I don't if there's a thread on it, but I run some white vinegar through it once a year to clean up deposits. If yours is exceptionally dirty or clogged up some CLR cleaner might help.

    Is there a list of tailors by area (preferably with customer reviews) anywhere? I am, unfortunately, only aware of two in my area. One does acceptable work but nothing I was impressed by and I will never use the other again.

    Actually, Ralph Lauren Sanderson. They're a little darker in person, but I wanted to make sure they were clearly visible in the pictures. Big compliments getting compared to Alden though, guess they're a definite keep :) Nothing else currently in my shoe line up fills this gap.

    No comprehensive list, but a lot of individual threads. Do a search using the name of your city and the word "tailor". :teach:
