So If RHD is out of action... is Mikhail Zenon the only specialist denim alterationist (ie has a chain stitch machine) left in Aus?
Is Right Hand Distribution in Adelaide still open? I've tried calling them a bunch of times over the past week, and emailed, but no response. It's very annoying (and a bit odd) that there isn't a specialist denim alterations place in Melbourne. You'd think there'd be a market for it.
Nothing wrong with Katrina's not sure what he is on about.I'm sure every tailor has a few unhappy customers now and then.
Are toe plates and a topy mutually exclusive? I like the idea of toe plates but I don't think I could go without the grip of a topy on wet Melbourne blue stones.
Any ideas on what's currently the most economical option for buying around 3 decent cedar shoe trees in Melb. Locally I assume? Preferably with a cedar heel as well as toe. These are cheap but don't look like they'd fill out a 10.5 shoe too well: http://www.petersofkensington.com.au/Public/Woodlore-Cedar-Shoe-Tree-Set.aspx On eBay the best I can find are these, a heap of them from around $30 delivered from HK...
I am by no means an expert, but two simple things I look for on pants are firstly whether the pockets flare, and secondly whether the side seam runs mostly straight at the pocket, ie in the 10cm below the waist of the pants, or if it is warped in that spot.If either is occurring to a great degree then in my experience it means you need more room across the hips and more in the rear seat.
10.5 in both and fit well. Usually 10.5C in calf 5-65.Shell is definitely looser. Could almost do a 10.5A.
Only speaking with reference to my personal taste, and yours may differ but...I think your pants are much too tight in all areas. It's not flattering at all. Especially since they are dress pants and not casuals.I think you need to add 0.5" to the half knee, 1" to the half thigh, 1" to rear seat and 0.5" to front seat.And probably something to both the hip measurements but I can't tell from that angle. Looks like the pockets are flaring a bit.
I got a military crease on some pants a while back. It looks great while standing up and from a few meters away, but it looks very strange on your thighs when sitting down. It also made me a but self concious about some funny looks I got by people who noticed. I don't wear them any more. Be warned. I would recommend trying it on something cheap first to decide if you like the look.
New shoe Thursday:
