I emailed Alden about resizing (re-lasting) a pair of shoes about 6 months ago. They told me they could do it (though I got lazy and never got around to sending them in). I would check with Alden before jumping to the conclusion that they don't re-size shoes.
I have been using the same guy for basic RTW alterations for some time now. He does a pretty good job, but I am wondering where he falls on the price spectrum of Manhattan tailors. Generally, for a suit he will charge.... $20 - to hem the pants $25 - to bring in the waist $50 ($25 each side) - to bing in the sides of a suit jacket $50 ($25 each) - to shorten the sleeves $10 - for each working button hole on the sleeves Is this in-line with what other new...

I have a number of Barbour coats and find my Beauforts to be the most "classic" and versatile. As some other have mentioned, they are also long enough to go over a sport coat. I would suggest staying away from the silkoil coats though they don't develop the nice patina that the others do. The...
Do you have to get one of the three shoes posted? There are WAY better options out there.
Is this a joke?
