The shrinkage is not excessive like a previous poster suggested. I have about 8 TM Lewin shirts myself but thanks to this great post I will be...
Gold tie still available?
I actually just had my tailor narrow the armholes on my overcoat last week. I was basically asking her the different things she was able to and she was basically like she can pretty much do whatever I am interested in having done. So I asked her if she could make the armholes narrower and she just pinned them up to my liking and made it happen. I was certain to make sure that she understood that I didn't want the armholes tapered but made narrower throughout, which is...
