It looks fine, but I was horribly disappointed by the quality of the wool. The wool is really thin and flimsy, and was wrinkled in some places,...
Thanks. Forgot to ask what size and measurements?

that j crew mackintosh is one good looking jacket -- the navy looks great. i'd have to try it on for fit and the breathability issue that sipang brings up, though. i think the men's store/liquor store in nyc has them. but that's once i make enough money to drop that much on a jacket.
Thanks, I'll give them a call tomorrow. Though, I was planning on asking them to do the inseam, even though it's more complicated, since I want to preserve the selvage.

These jeans are hand-sewn, so you will see small discrepancies...
I hope this is the right place to ask this question -- I'd appreciate some advice. I recently received some Rag & Bone RB11's in the mail, and I just noticed that there is some strange stitching in the inseam. It looks like it "skips" about 2 inches along the leg near the ankle area. Is this normal...? I've attached 2 photos, one of the outside of the jean and one of the inside. I emailed custservice@rag-bone.com, but they haven't replied, probably because it's a weekend.
