They aren't like the typical side adjusters you might see...

Are you a "standard measurement profile"? They...

Good luck with the resoling and hope you get them back just how you want them.
That is a real shame they didn't tell you up front, IMO poor internet/email communication by many businesses is a major blemish to customer service & branding. It's 2011 and it is one of, if not the, dominating ways of communicating and purchasing. It just seems weird they would destroy or trash a last - from what I understand reading here they are not the easiest things to come by or cheap. Unless I'm mistaken it's not like they require a lot of shelf space for...

I don't know if I agree as an end-user, I had a jacket altered last week and if it had just been .25" he could have left the working buttons and the sleeve innards as stock - however I need more like 1.5" off and he isn't capable of doing it from the shoulder (well...
Gonna have to vote Gucci bit loafer, I own 3 of them. Would love a pair of the Barkers in black though for when I want to sport some attitude. Not a fan of split toe or tassels personally but I do like the shape of those G&Gs posted.

Unfortunately the registration process is too simple, it would be nice if the admin could update the software/be more aggressive deleting accounts - I realize this is a free forum so not likely to happen based on my experiences on other boards.
Quote: Originally Posted by Papa Doble I see what you mean. The suspenders would be completely hidden under the vest, which I would not take off. I have some trousers from them with side tabs - they have suspender buttons as well, pretty sure by default (I asked on the first pair but not the second). I don't believe they allow working cuffs on the first jacket if I recall their verbiage, makes sense since once they are cut it makes altering...

I don't know how they compare to the ones in B&S for sale but those are like $1-2ea.
