Looking to buy a jacket from rakuten, however I'm having troubles interpreting the measurements correctly. The listing says:

Width: 57 cm
Hem width: 66 cm

How do measure those? Like, if I took one of my jackets how would I figure out it's "width"? English isn't my first language (neither is japanese) and I assume "width" and "hem width" are both directly translated from japanese so I don't really understand please help

Oh hey, I’m in the right thread for this sort of question — “pool” is “leave as-is”, right?

For most of my cotton Belstaff jackets, it comes with a stitched-on patch of the logo on the upper left arm. While it's not entirely unappealing, I like to keep a low presence of wearing name-brand stuff. However I have this light tan waxed jacket coming and I'm contemplating of just leaving the patch on because it "flows" with the color. What do you guys think about de-tagging this jacket?:

Image

For those who are curious, I use a seam-ripper to cut the stitching off. I would be very careful so as to not over-do it that you'll accidentally and irreversibly pull the fabric thread(s) out.

I hope this isn't tasteless but I was wondering if our UK fellas could remind us of all the great UK brands I seem to have forgotten. Off the top of my head I have Story MFG and Nigel Cabourn(personally not into a lot of the stuff off L.F.W like Nasir Mazhar)

I am hoping to take full advantage of the entire situation across the pond, does this mean that as of right now there is a 10% discount if we buy anything in pounds?

And if I buy something in pounds will PayPal automatically convert it from the USD I have in my PayPal?

has anyone re-dyed a slightly faded (black) cotton garm to get the colour nice and strong again? i feel like black on black should be relatively straightforward right? (my favourite marni trous so i'm a bit hesitant)

Sorry for the blog link, but a fellow care-tagger/dressed.so member Amy did a bunch of home dye jobs and it seemed to be a fairly easy process. I think she used the RIT dye for cotton and iDye for synthetics? There's also a video tutorial included at the bottom of the post. Please note that if the garment is not 100% cotton you might need to research a different type of dye (natural fibers vs. synthetics).

does anyone know of a clip-on sunglasses manufacturer that does clips for any arbitrary model of frames

if not, if anyone has ever handled the oliver peoples mp-2 clip ons, and do you think they'd fit snugly on a same shaped frame but with a thinner frame (ie frame depth is not as deep)?

Sorry for the double post
Does anyone know if these jeans/seller are legit? I looked at his feedback but there isn't a single comment about any of the items so I wonder if it's a scam :/

Something that's been bothering me: I asked what kind of collar goes best with a wide notch lapel and was given this advice:

a good rule of thumb (though not absolutely necessary) is to have the collar points reach the lapels in the sense that they tuck away neatly beneath them, and the points themselves don't show when the jacket is buttoned up.


which means this:

Image

I've found very few of this look from casual designers, some older Jil had it, some MH with point spreads, but most of what I saw are like this:

What is the difference? Is the former more formal? Does it matter?

anyone know of similar backpacks to this one? Bags that look like full sized hiking backpacks but are actually mid sized. If I manage to track down this one would it be hard to remove the vinyl logo?
