This is becoming a bit of a pattern…but anyway.

Just received this shirt from the hip store. https://www.thehipstore.co.uk/product/blue-visvim-albacore-blanket-shirt/107219/

They marked it as a size medium which I hoped would be a 2 (the smallest vis they seem to stock is medium and there are no measurements), but it's a 3 and just a bit too loose. My other size 2 Visvim shirts fit me perfectly. Deciding whether to return it or get it taken in. I really like it and have been after one of the native blankets since I went to Japan a couple of years ago and there was no stock left anywhere.

I've never had a shirt altered before, is it pretty safe to do so? Or is there a risk that I somehow ruin an expensive shirt?

I wouldn't do that to be honest. I'd return it mate. A size 2 is a medium. Size 3 in Vis is a Large so they advertised it wrong. Keep an eye on Yahoo Auctions Japan, i'm sure you'll get lucky.

I have a tear around elbow of an Albacore shirt, on the patch, and a similar one on a Remi plaid shirt. Is London Fashion Workrooms best place to get repairs like that done in Central/Shoreditch? Also, do they denim (I usually just send to doctor after crap job by Maurice previously).

I’ve a deckhand that is a bit snug around the bottom. Other than lose weight, is there anything you can do to stretch the band at the waist?

Can anyone give any sizing advice on the current Virgil Folk Suede?

My Grizzly's are a US9.5 (https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0051/0392/products/Visvim_Grizzly_Mid_Folk-11_1024x1024.jpg?v=1465029110) or a UK9 in regular nike etc.

Would I need the same as the griz, or go up to a US10?

I think the general consensus is go down half a size

Got a pair of 73 folk boots that haven't yet been cleaned, can anyone reccomend a good leather cleaner/restorer etc? (got mink oil which I use on redwings but it darkens everything it touches)
