Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)If you are under 5'10" then it will probably be ok, anything over and it's gonna be too short no matter what. Labels are thin but again not too bad. If it's the cut you like, Band of Outsiders is another option, maybe a little pricier at retail but it will go on sale at Barneys. But if you aren't wearing suits just get something cheap? Yoox has a lot of options
I'm about 6'1 so jacket length will probably be a problem.
I'll check out Jil suiting. Gonna try to make it out to Uniqlo this weekend too to check out their suits.post #93753 of 1090543/28/14 at 11:55ampost #93754 of 1090543/28/14 at 1:02pmQuote:
Can't be any worse than a Novair flight I was one to Thailand once, the over seat lighting had three setting on, off or light show and you couldn't choose which you got, which was great on an over night flight.
To make a bad thing worse some of the overhead compartments opened upon taking off, turbulence and landing, also who the fuck calls an airline NO AIR?post #93755 of 1090543/28/14 at 1:10pmpost #93756 of 1090543/28/14 at 1:22pmQuote:Originally Posted by KingJulien
I'd be willing to be that it's not all muscle, and if you did a cut you'd be able to fit into the jeans again. I don't know what size you were starting from but after lifting for a year and dieting for 2 months everything still fits just fine.
If you were a total ectomorph before obviously that won't be the case.
I mean yeah it's not all muscle, but I've managed to stay pretty lean throughout the whole process. Though my waist could probably be cut down a bit, my lower body has always been pretty developed from hockey. Being in the gym has only added more volume, and most of that has gone to the rear and to the thighs. Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't imagine I could just "cut" my thighs and glutes. I really don't think they could be much leaner.post #93757 of 1090543/28/14 at 1:25pmQuote:
He meant the actual drop of your body, that is your chest measurement in relation to your waist. Not what you sweater/jacket size is compared to your pants.
If you are somewhat built and muscular, some cuts that skinny people look good will look bad on you.Quote:Originally Posted by thewho13

I really don't think they could be much leaner.If most of your weight gain goes to your legs, most of the weight is probably also gonna come off the legs when you go on a diet and cut weight since it appears thats were you store most fat and gain most muscle. My thighs shrunk 2 inches around on my cut last year when I dropped 15 pounds. My APC size went from something like a 33 to a 31. My legs also grew the most on the prior bulk.They will def get smaller when you lose weight. No way around it.post #93758 of 1090543/28/14 at 1:46pmpost #93759 of 1090543/28/14 at 2:20pmQuote:Quote:Originally Posted by thewho13

Agree with conceptionist, I think you will be surprised.post #93760 of 1090543/28/14 at 3:16pm
Is there any weird CM rule about when to put cuffs on slacks or not? I've got a pair of suit pants that I want to have hemmed to no break and I'm wondering if I should get cuffs put on them too. Trousers are flat front with an 8" hem if that makes any difference.post #93761 of 1090543/28/14 at 8:38pm
Messed up a hem job on wool pants because I wore them higher at the tailor then I normally do relaxed and don't like wearing belts unless paired with collared shirts I wear infrequently. Supposed to be no break but now nearly whole inch longer than expected with break. My tailor's gonna laugh when I bring in thee pairs of pants to re-hem, although two are raw denim and their stretch is crazy unpredictable.post #93762 of 1090543/29/14 at 12:01ampost #93763 of 1090543/29/14 at 12:27amQuote:
Not really. There's an outdated dictum that says cuffs for pleated pants, no cuffs for flat front pants, which I don't think has been followed for a long time. Some people say cuffs shorten the leg line, so they're less ideal for shorter people, but @mafoofan is short and likes 2" cuffs.
One point in favor of cuffs is that the extra weight of the cuff helps the drape of the pants, reinforcing the clean, straight line of no break. I like to ask for a slightly slanted hem on pants with no break, though, so my socks aren't exposed as easily, but you can't achieve this with cuffs. If I go no cuffs and no break, I usually ask the tailor to add interlining at the hem, so I get the benefit of the extra weight.
I cuffed all my suit pants in the past but am starting to prefer the slightly more minimalist look of no cuffs. Big cuffs will mark you as more of a CM guy, which is probably fine since we're talking suits and you're wondering about CM rules.post #93764 of 1090543/29/14 at 12:57amYou can slant cuffs, just a more difficult job
I will be trying 1.5" cuffs tomorrow. 1" is fine but I could use more weight for the drape...
I like cuffs for all CM pants, looks nice with jackets and long coats
For thicker fabric some prefer no cuffs due to the inherent weight of the material
I've been brainwashed by CM fwiw...NMWA does a superb job of melding the two aestheticspost #93765 of 1090543/29/14 at 1:33amAgree. There's one Zara shop next to my workplace, and I feel the same about it. This "season" (a season for Zara = 2 months), they heavily copied Saint Laurent Paris : I saw the perfecto (in faux leather... Yuck!), the destroy jeans with the chains around the holes, the (faux) leather blazer... The cut looks good but its disgusting, even though I can't afford 'real' Saint Laurent. Faux leather for instance ages badly and keep odors. I wonder how Zara never faces legal issues over copying other brands design? I mean , if you copy a song's melody, you can be sued for that... Are things different in the designing/clothing world? (Matter of fact I actually remember Louboutin suing Zara 2 years ago for copying one of his signature high heels shoes... And he lost. Maybe the case refrained the other designer to sue Zara?)...
