Anyone have the new St. James yet? It'd be nice to see photos from different angles to compare it to the St. James II.
Price includes Priority Mail shipping. These have already been hot-soaked, so the measurements below take the guesswork out of sizing. I've worn them only a couple of times. No meaningful fading at this stage. Waist: 16" across Inseam: 32" (hemmed) Leg opening: 7.75" across Front rise: 9.6" Rear rise: 13.6" EDIT: Just noticed that the photo of the back shows a couple of darker spots near the bottom of the leg.

Jack's work was excellent.
Took a suit today to Jack's in Porter Square. He was very kind, seemed honest, and immediately understood how I wanted the suit modified. He also didn't show any snobbishness about the fact that it's a cheap suit, which I appreciate. I'll report back when I pick up the suit in a week. I expect the work to be very good, but we'll see.
Thanks, somehow I had missed the Cottonwork thread! I didn't realize there were other comparably priced online-MTM options now. Will probably give them a try, although I've had pretty good experiences with Jantzen overall.

Yup, that's the disadvantage of non-carpeted floors. Hardwood is more attractive, and cleaner in the sense that you don't have all those allergens hiding in the shag, but the price you pay is having to wear slippers or sandals (or shoes) all the time, or to clean obsessively, if you don't want your feet filthy.

I have odd taste in steak. I enjoy the flavor of good top round or top sirloin over that of ribeye or other fatty cuts. Filet is fine but not worth the price for me.
