    Hello. I plan to order few shirts and want to know what colar suits me better. Does it have to do with height? shoulder width? or shape of face?

    When I was helping a friend go through her deceased husband's clothes and I found a Bradley Jons for Gruner and Co jacket with removable liner. It seems to be pretty good quality. Does anyone know anything about this brand? Google doesn't bring up much for me.

    I have a pair of cordovan vintage Dexter wingtip, the cobbler ended up resoling the whole thing for me for free. Long story short, after a few wears, I noticed that part of the leather has "cracked," I can get some pictures tonight.

    But is something like this generally fixable?

    You mean on B&S here on Styleforum? Scams seem relatively rare, especially if you buy from anyone with a decent post count. You can protect yourself by not using the "gift" option on Paypal, even if you have to pay a little extra. Protection through Paypal is pretty good.

    For the how: you private message the seller, then you send them money via Paypal to whatever email address they tell you to. Then they send you your swag. Pretty straightforward.

    Do you mean the new leather sole has cracked? If yes then you can just get it resoled again I suppose. If you mean the leather upper has cracked I'm afraid there's nothing much you can do about it.

    Washington DC/Arlington SFers,

    Any recommendations with regard to a tailor for minor alterations (i.e., I need the waist taking in on a few pants)? I know Field's is regarded as the best in town, but not necessarily for small jobs such as these.

    Yeah I meant the upper. I guess I'll keep them around for beaters in the rain.

    Im attending a wedding on Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) I was looking at this nice pink with thin blue stripes, knit tie (square bottom). I wanted to know are knit ties fine for a spring wedding? I've always kind of identified knit ties with winter but this particular one looks rather "springish". What do you think?

    Weddings are cheerful occasions. Go for it.

    Assuming a pink tie with blue stripes would be appropriate for the wedding in question - for some weddings, any tie would be too formal, and for others anything less than the most conservative of ties would be too informal - there's no particular reason to avoid wearing a knit tie. Silk knit ties can certainly be worn year 'round, and I agree that a pink one with blue stripes sounds quite in keeping with the spirit of spring or summer.
