    Most anyone can pull a Fred Perry off.

    Outlet stores in the UK have them for around £28 ($42), so I don't doubt eBay will have some in your price region.

    I have a red (non-tipped) and a green (tipped) which look dapper on a hot summer's day.

    Be careful on ebay as there are a lot of fakes. I'm sure GetSmart knows of some places with sales going on or that have lower prices. I think he knows every stockist in the world [​IMG]

    When buying a blazer should I choose a size thats 2" up from my chest? So if my chest is 34" I should look for a 36-38 blazer?

    ^^ Most blazers and outerwear is sized for the tagged size, so a 34 would probably measure 36-38.

    JCrew question:

    I got a polo and a button-up as a gift and they are both about an inch or 1 1/2 inches too wide. Other than that, the fit is spot-on. If I wash them, will they shrink or should I take them straight to the tailor?

    Go to the tailor.

    Sounds good.



    Another short question: JCrew Secret Wash button-downs...okay to wear untucked? It says it has a "shirt-tail hem" which is kind of a red light for me. I was trying to get some good button-downs that I could wear untucked this summer with shorts and jeans.

    Tailoring price question. Assuming i can find a decent tailor in gainesville or Orlando, how much would it cost to do the following to a pair of linen pants:

    - Hem about 4"
    - Take the waist in a touch (like half inch)
    - Slim pants in the thighs maybe a 1/4 inch (maybe darting or something? i dunno what i'm talking about)

    They're not that big in the thighs, but i think would fit a bit more flattering if just barely slimmed up. They're unfinished so they certainly need to be hemmed though

    They're pretty much true to size...I got them in white and a lot of reviews said size down a half, so I did, but they were a bit tight.

    LL Bean trim fit shirts. Anyone know if these are worth looking into if you're into slimmy fits, or is trim fit another way of saying not as baggy?

    Also, how are the LL Bean windbreakers fit wise?

    Can't speak for which model you'd prefer, but you can cop a discount through Crane's via the forum-they're an affiliate.

    I believe APC themselves have a French site.

    Obligatory disclaimer: Crate are a better buy at that price, and with our discount probably will come out to more or less the same as what you'd pay for APC, maybe even less.

    Each procedure cost $5-10, and I'd say you can get everything done together for $20-25 for one pair of pants.

    Slimming down the thighs is most easily done at the outseam.

    I saw a Ralph Lauren Black Label charcoal suit in my size for $700. Deal or no deal?
