I will stay strong this month. Last night I was tempted to buy a watch - thank god I didn't and sold out this morning. It was a triwa with nato strap. With shipping $85 from gilt. Also tempting over a carusu navy blazer. Even when I have 4 navy blazers. And a lbm 1911 grey herringbone blazer. I already have 2 in same colour. I am an addict and been over spending ever since I found sf. I hope this month I can come out clean.
I am not too sure why sf members advise sizing down on Marlows. If you have narrow feet or you are in between sizes only then size down. If you have wide flat fit then you must go tts or half size up. I even had to go half size up for the penny. I am tts 8E and struggle with marlows. My PTB is my TTS size 8E (euro stock wide fitting). And they are a bit tight around pinky and really loose around every where else.I wanted go half size bigger than my tts but store didn't...
Gents, My first attempt adding cuffs on a pair of pants. A quick question. For a 5'9.5" guy how big should the pants cuffs be ; without looking dandy ? Pants will have slightly less than 1 inch break and they are part of a navy suit. I am a skinny guy and suit size 34r. Cheers
Lol. I hate when I see some unwanted creases on my jacket sleeves just below the shoulder padding. Good hangers does make a difference. I am yet to spend some serious money on hangers.
I am in. I have dropped jacket for alteration this Monday. Will pick it up on next Tuesday. And will have to pay $150 upon pickup. Since the alteration was arranged prior to this signup I guess its ok! I really hope not to spend any money on any clothing , shoes and clothing related items. I need to do this to boost my finance.
Thanks for you reply. Lol I knew he wouldn't make the jacket that slim. I will have to wait till next Tuesday for the result.
Question to the tailors- I dropped a jacket for alteration at a tailor I have never used before. This tailor has very good reputation in Sydney. They way he measured me and pinned the jacket is completely different to my other tailor. He only used 1 pin each sides and 1 pin each sleeves and just used chalk mark for sleeve length . Other tailor would use 3/4 pins each sides few pins on the center back seam and 3 pins on each sides of sleeve and 1 pin for shortening of the...
I dropped a PRL jacket for alteration at Varnavas C Classic Tailoring in Town Hall arcade today. I have been using my local Italian tailor in Hornsby for quite some times now. But since I have moved out of north I thought I might as well try this tailor in the city. I have read here few Sydney members recommended him for jacket alteration. He is charging the same as my other tailor $150 for sides taken in, sleeves shortened and sleeves taken in as well. They way he...
