  I have been waiting for a restock on that particular striped grenadine for quite a while! Looking forward to ordering and receiving one of my own.     Thank you for the details.

Believe it or not, I'm actually still waiting on them. I dropped the trousers off with the jacket, and my tailor said he had a six week wait for suits. Wedding season, I assume.   Suffice it to say he said he'd be able to do it easily by recutting the trousers, and charged me $40 (!!!) for it. One of the many reasons why I love the Lower East Side.
