I'll try and go back later this afternoon and try on the 44, which was too large and snap some photos of that.As I said about the smaller 42, it was just a try-on to see what the problems were when I had a smaller jacket on. I'm more interested in the educational process of seeing what the problem is when you see creases in certain parts of the jacket, or balance issues as Chris mentioned with the front and back of a jacket (or the fact that I had an erect posture; which I...
Can you guys give me a quick eyeing up on this try-on and tell me what you would do? I'm right in between a 42 and a 44 so I've got a 42R try-on right now that is slim-cut. I'm having a suit made for me but want to learn what needs correcting for my own educational experience. I jacked the exposure way up as the lighting was horrible and wanted to see if it would help pick up the creases and lines on the black fabric. Sorry the phone pics are so horrible. Aside...
Yeah, the size is too small or possibly the shoulder would need to be taken out. Is the collar of the jacket adhering to the shirt collar?
That or because the photo was snapped so far away, the lapels may just need shortening.Can you snap a pic that's a little closer?
Bump because I saw that Gilt Chicago is offering this until Sunday, I believe. I got a suit from them last summer (full-canvased, Scabal super 130's navy pinstripe) and have been very pleased with the results, especially for the price they offered it for. I think they have the option of sourcing it to master tailors here in the States or overseas for a lower price, which is a cool option to have if you're interested in lower price vs. American-made. I'm surprised they...
I think we have our winner.
I loved that movie when it came out:
With hippos, it's really only during the night when the human fatalities occur; usually when one goes down to the river to draw water. I'd say if any animal were to take down a grizzly it would be a bull elephant or possibly the rhino, though its low height could put it at a disadvantage. The elephant's hide is just too thick, the tusks too large and it's neck muscles which swing them too strong, and finally just the sheer inertia of a charging elephant would flatten a...
You mean this?
I've gotten some very helpful suggestions in regards to kitchen knives so I thought I'd ask about cutting boards as well. At present, I've got two cheap plastic cutting boards that are really starting to stink despite my best efforts to disinfect. I'm looking at two alternatives to plastic: the Sani-Tuff rubber cutting board and a wooden cutting board, probably teak. Anybody own either and if so, would they care to comment on them?
