    Oh my. I've posted here twice to ask questions and twice to say thanks for the answers and both of my "thank you" posts (but not my question posts) have been held for moderation because I'm new. [​IMG]

    Politeness must be thoroughly checked for potential snark.

    Alternatively, you could get some pocket squares from Kent Wang or Vanda. Start off with a couple of white linen ones or even this and go from there. Check out the pocket squares in the Ebay Round Up on Put This On as well.

    How would you know that the pocket squares they send you would work with your current wardrobe? [​IMG]

    I have white linen, but those really only get an airing when I wear a business suit. Something which happens at best three times a year. Other than that I have a bunch of hideously complex paisleys in garish colors of silk that I have no business wearing with my overwhelmingly english-country wardrobe.
    I'll def check out your recommendations though, thank you :)


    Random chance would probably work out better than me being allowed to select them ;)

    Anyone know where to buy readers that don't actually come with prescription lenses. Looking for glass lenses not plastic.

    IIRC, a significant percentage of RL's shoes are made by Alden. Couldn't comment on if those were or not though.

    I was under the impression that it was AE, but if I got Aldens for $180 I can't complain :slayer:

    Where would one find crockett and jones shoes for decent prices online? Also, because i highly doubt I can try them on in michigan, how does a 10.5e/11d match up in c&j shoes based upon my sizing in AEs? Thanks for any insight, new to the shoe game!

    the last on these is nicer than most aldens you can find. imo, aldens are vastly overrated.

    Any tailors reading this thread? I just bought an expensive casual shirt and the sleeves are too long by a couple of inches. The fabric is 100% cotton, but is really thick and feels almost like denim. Is this a simple fix for a tailor, or do I risk ruining the garment? would they cut it at the cuff or shoulder?

    Pics of cuff and inside/outside of shoulder:
