No don't remove the dangling bits. The surface of leather needs to be retained First use a bit of water to straighten the dangling leather (bits). Use your fingers to pull them gently straight (not to remove but make fibers straight). You will now have clean straight leather flaps Once dry use a bit of glue (carpenter glue is OK but water resistent cements are better) and aply thinly to the open wounds (underneath dangling leather). Then place the dangling fiber...
I like alot of waist supression but that guy has no shoulders - his hips a wider than his shoulders - just like a woman. It looks silly! He would benefit from a built up shoulder that is extended out

If you like A&S ofcourse you won't like anything Boss or Prada related. Actually...
I have many many Boss items including a host of suits. Not a single one of them has any synthetic exterior. Many of the suits use Loro Piana Summer Tasmanian 120, winter tasmanian or Four Seasons. as well as VBC. There is nothing cheap or low grade about this cloth (obviously not the ultimate though). Most are in the super 110s and above and upto 140 every single one uses real horn buttons everywhere and are every step as good as any other fused suit at any price- and I...

They don't have to be uneasy, infact this has the potential to be a match made in heaven. Traditional English shoemaker of the highest caliber can indicate the highest quality materails and assembly procedures and NOT the finished style. + Avant...
