Maybe OP should have waited to have the issue resolved before starting the thread but all Nick had to do was say something like: "OP, I doubt those problems were a result of our work, but since we value your business we'll make it right regardless. Bring the shoes in and we'll do whatever we can for no additional charge." Problem solved. OP happy. SF happy. The company takes a small hit in time/expense but comes off looking very professional. Instead you got into...
I've been searching B&S to no avail. Why buy new and pay retail?
A list of fabric patterns (gingham, herringbone etc.) - with descriptions or pictures - may be helpful.

Although its a little big I think a 36 would be too small. Length is borderline but ok, sleeves can come up a bit depending on the amount of cuff you want to show.

For hemming pants and taking in shirts I use the local laundromat - cheaper and more convenient. Everything else goes to the tailor. To take out the waist he charges $25.

I think the problem comes in when one member or group in society starts dictating what "our part" is. If you want to conserve, donate etc. then go for it, but don't force your morality / agenda on everyone...

It's just human nature, especially when things become less scarce. I'll take abundance and waste over pre-industrial mass privation though. Compare food expenditures as a % of disposable income in the developed world vs. that of the developing. There's a...
