And that would def be the time to do it. If you need buckles, shoot me a pm and I'll send you some. I have side adjusters made for almost every suit I sell even if the client is wearing a belt. Got a ton of them laying around. Heck...chances are I have entire sets of side adjusters already made if its a common fabric.
The waistband curtain inside the trouser must be opened by releasing the tacks and then the blindstitch underneath. This will allow access to the seam where the waistband is physically sewn to the trouser body. From there, the belt loops can be removed and then the hole can be resewn. The entire waistband does not need to come off. This is a little bit of a job but not as much as actually installing the belt loops so make sure you definitely want it done before you do it.
I think Barbour has their own tailoring and repair service. You'd probably want to go to them for this.
You can register and search on the cutter and tailor forum. Try to dig thru what would be ultra technical stuff to you. Diagrams for this type of thing are very tough to translate it for the lay person. Also, search SF for 'on pants'. There's a pretty in depth article there. In fact, that article and personal experimentation are essentially how I learned to fix the issue both in alterations and in mtm. Still even with my pretty accurate mtm producer I am finding myself...
Chris can answer in a likely more accurate way, but the challenge is explaining in a way that a non tailor can understand. To be frank, many guys are afflicted with forward hips and flat seat or a combo of the two. In a nutshell, a guy built like that simply needs less fabric in the back and more in the front. Many rtw trousers are going to be cut with at least some degree of seat angle and back rise to be pretty much right in the middle of super angled and full cut and...
Decent MTM could/should look like this out of the box. Is it perfect? No. There are small adjustments that can be made to his profile to make the next garments better but this is right from the factory with no alterations. This guy has a 50" barrel chest and obvious portly build. It must be accounted for correctly along with being measured correctly. When the seller has synergy with the maker and knows how the maker is translating the measures, Mtm can and does work very...
I was almost tempted to argue that, but coming from you I guess I can't. Ha if anyone else said that I'd coke up with since philosophical response like "no, they always know what they want, they just need a human shovel known as a tailor to dig them out of their sartorial grave" Oh what a nerdi am on SF posting at 345 am. Or slightly drunk after a long day greatening my already semi head forward posture behind a needle and thread... And an iPad. What a tough life
See the few posts above with the gent describing the fly away lapels. Yours is really the same problem(s) except generally more extreme. Short front balance long back balance. Erect posture and barrel chest. Sloped shoulders need less width point to point and you need to relax the half girth to manage the drop from the shoulders to the waist. You're super wide up top. To flatter that you close the point to point a bit and actually open up the half girth. The long and short...
This isn't something I struggle with because my branding is set up in a way that effectively communicates to the rather wide variety of clients (or potential clients) that "Every Style Celebrated" (my branding tagline) means whether you're edgy and into bizarre fashion or your standards are in line with what is approved of on a forum like SF, you can get it from me.Too many brands/stores easily show themselves to cater to one side or the other. I can see the movement in...
Well in a business way, you just detach yourself emotionally from their choice. That's a level of maturity you reach early on in this biz. The next level is to find a way to become as emotionally invested as the client is even tho in your heart of hearts, you don't really like it.It creates a stronger draw from a wide variety of clients when they see that you serve a rather wide variety and not just the rogue or regular client.
