tailors don't give a shit about your numbers. they don't work that way. you need to pin it exactly where you want and say "here". that's really the only way.
also I doubt you can tell the different between 7.25 and 7.
got an open container violation last summer, did nothing about it, ignored all court summons etc...after missing multiple court dates etc finally called in August to deal with it and it had already been dismissed. they don't/can't actually care about something so small
hoodies fit slim and I'd say small, size up one unless you went a high armhole super fitted look which I think is kinda gross but I know a lot of you guys are still stuck in 2007..
bombers fit big, and you can safely size down here if you want a slim/regular fit. Intended fit is oversized. i'd go tts.
reedo, best cheap option that's not black timbs is classic black blundstone chelseas. this is what most people in nyc wear. only issue is that they're not insulated so when it gets really cold you need to wear thermals/double socks or heat tech otherwise your feet feel wet even though they're super waterproof. they're great though.
