Sounds good! Yes, I can confirm that was my order. Thanks again.
Thanks! I actually just emailed the info@lawlessdenim.com email address to adjust my inseam to 31 inches from 30, because I remembered that a lot of the times, I don't actually like 30 inch inseams but also feel 32 inch inseams are too long. The times where I have liked a 30 inch inseam has been luck, usually I find them too short. I placed the order earlier today, was the proper method of informing someone of this change to my order to contact that email address? Thank you!
I just ordered some bootcut jeans. I'm excited, this is just what I've been looking for now that my Levis are wearing thin and I don't want to buy sweatshop jeans anymore. I normally wear Levis with a waist of 30 so I decided to go with the 31s.   Measuring my waist it seems I'm about a 31 and I remember going through this process to order Birdwell Beach Britches which are nylon swim trunks that stress they are truly sized as well and recommend going up from your Levi's...
I like Halloween! I always dress up. Sometimes it's utterly ridiculous stuff that SF would never approve of, but this year I'm bringing back my Patrick Bateman costume since I didn't actually get to wear it on Halloween two years ago because of the hurricane (I wore it to some parties in the weeks leading up). I've had 7 years of originality, this year I'm going to be cheap and lazy and repetitive by doing it again.
I just wanted to take a second to recommend Cardelino Tailors. I went to the one on Broadway. I guess another one is right around the corner from it and I don't know their relationship to each other.   Anyway I had gotten my first suit that wasn't from a place with in-house tailoring (it was a Hardwick Seersucker from AmericanSuitStore.com) and so I was looking here for good tailors. I settled on Cardelino for price, location and recommendation.   I am extremely happy...
I only see white tie at this event
Haha I used to get the job interview jabs all the time (software developer). Honestly, the only times I really dress up are when I can force it to happen. This is weddings, New Years, anything where I can not look out of place wearing anything nice (not even a tie, but more casual).
I think another thing is that something is classic if you could wear it in the beginning of the century or whenever just as easily as today. Both time periods have fashion trends that would look weird outside of the decade they were popular in but a well put together tuxedo should really transcend that.   If you put on a tuxedo to all the agreed upon specs you see in this thread and elsewhere online, it seems to me (based only on Hollywood movies, don't get me wrong)...
I literally just bought a Hardwick seersucker suit (well my GF did for Christmas, but it was back ordered so I received it a few days ago). I posted about it another thread. These are made in America suits, but extremely affordable. I bought mine from http://americansuitstore.com but I know that http://menssuitseparates.com also sells them (these are the only two Hardwick resellers I know online, they might also sell directly to stores near you). Anyway it's less than...
I think that the fixation on matching belt and shoes a lot of people have is somewhat misguided. It is a good rule of thumb that belt and shoes should match, but it was taken way too far. Belt and shoes should match in both dressiness and palette, yes, but the obsessive level of matching (in my opinion) ends up being a futile exercise with a tacky result.   If you have burgundy shoes, get a burgundy belt. The dressiness of the belt should be the same as the dressiness of...
