Recently relocated to Chicago (South Loop, specifically). Would like to get a few new pieces adjusted. Other than Oak St. tailors, any recent recommendations for a reasonably priced alterations tailor in the area? Not looking to head out to the burbs...
Beautiful work, sir!
You're not going to get shrinkage a full size. Not even half size for that matter. Granted, I haven't dried a Lupo on high heat, but it's unlikely. Usually I just get it to around the original fit as it was before my full day of wear may have stretched it out.
Half size down on the kimber loafers. I don't normally size down, but glad I did. They run wide -ish, and going down half size prevented heel slippage. Love those loafers.
No!! Don't put the teeth through the cloth. You're supposed to be able to adjust the waist by a pulling or letting out of the tab, which you can't do if the teeth were through the cloth. Plus you'd ruin the side tab.
Nice. This one the Sak's version?
What's folks sizing experience with the cross-hair loafers? True to size or size down half?
What would you say is your widest fitting frames (among all makers), I guess similar to larger-sized wayfarers?
I'm interested in trying them, but I have a wide head. Not sure if Tirailleur does as well, but the arms look like they're pinching the sides, which would probably even be worse on me.
I love this.
