Thanks, these came to me barely worn, but being older cordovan I was concerned with dryness.

We like Duckfat for a fun casual lunch on the fly, small but tasty menu. Be prepared for a bit of a wait however.
It is possible, but it's a tricky alteration entrusted to only the most skilled tailors. Now days I would never attempt this, pass on the jacket no matter how much I liked it.The issue is maintaining the integrity of the shoulder. There is only so much that can be accomplished without screwing this up - even then, simply taking off and reattaching a sleeve can have disastrous results regarding sleeve pitch. A SC i brought in to Joe @ Rizzo was a great fitting jacket,...
