lol You fucker.
Charles Tyrhwitt is an option, but again, shipping time might not be ideal.
This is a terrible way to determine if your trousers are too baggy. You realize that if you reduce the leg to the point that you can only "pinch an inch" that you will only have 1/2 in of room on either side of your legs, right? As horrible as that sounds like it would look, I'd bet it would feel even worse. As for the waist, like I said, definitely get that taken in.
@JilSlander, I don't think I would slim the legs at all. They already look to be the right width and going any slimmer might cause some bunching or pulling in places. Just alter the waist and the hem and you should be fine.
Pretty much. Personally I don't know if I'd buy that suit. It's just not my style. But if you like it, and don't mind it having a scar, then go for it.
 The best reason to get the hole repaired is so that it doesn't get any bigger, of course.
The fit isn't bad at all, IMO. Whether it is worth it is up to you. I can only tell you what I would do. Personally, Hickey Freeman is nice, but it is nowhere near top of the heap in terms of clothing manufacturers. With alterations and repairs you are looking at a budget of $445 for a used suit. For that money you could get a new Suit Supply suit that would probably look a little more contemporary.    If we were talking about an Oxxford suit or a Canali, yeah, maybe I'd...
Looks about the same size as the hole I had repaired, but they can give you a specific quote. It's good that it's on a solid part of the cloth. Re-weaving patterned cloth is tricky and doesn't always look good.
The hole can be repaired. The best looking option is re-weaving, a labor intensive and expensive method. There is a place near me in Chicago called Without A Trace that is one of the best in the country. You can send stuff there if you aren't local. They have repaired one of my jackets and do a great job. A pinhole cost me $80, so it ain't cheap.
