post #12646 of 15794

I bought a blazer in 36R and the shoulders fit nicely, however my chest is 34, which makes the jacket a bit loose in the chest/ waist. Is it typically a difficult and expensive task to taper the sides? I also need to shorten the sleeves a bit as well.

pretty easy job for most tailors, maybe 20$ for the sides and 15$ for the sleeves (unless they have functional button-holes, then it'll cost more)

I have a relatively athletic/ slim build but have a little accumulated around the waist. 

 

I am looking at having some suits made and I know that within 4-6 months I will be: 

- Loosing a few inches on the waist (Go from 33/34 to 29/30) 

- Gaining some inches on the shoulders / upper body

 

What do I need to account into or worry about with respect this change? 

- What things could be adjusted by a tailor? 

- Should I let the sizes be a little different in ADVANCE? 

 

Thoughts / Suggestions?

I can tell you that most everything can be altered EXCEPT the shoulders. If you'll be putting on some then best to but later or buy now and tailor later.
My 2 cents.

Anyone recommend some black jeans with a similar fit to the APC PS?

My 2 cents.

How about if these are my current and target measurements for shoulders (workout plan): 

 

46     48.5-51.7

 

Should I right size it in between? Some kind of temporary padding? Thoughts? 

I am guessing slightly tightening up the slim fit trousers a bit should not be a biggie? 

 

Chest 43 42.25   42.3   47.36
Arms 13 15.209   15.2   16.38

I'm pretty sure he has those and wants to try other brands out.

Correct...

I've tried Levis 511's and sized them 30W/34L. My APC's are 29"W. The Levis are a bit too baggy & I'm wondering if sizing down to a 32 leg on the 511's would help that, but even in doing that I doubt they would fit as slim as the APC's.

Why don't you give the 510s a shot or is it too tight?

How does one spot clean natural indigo denim?

 

I was playing catch outside and got a dime-sized skid of what smells like actual shit right below the knee of my new n&f jeans. Only found it the next day after wondering why the smell of a stable was following me around, so the crap was kind of caked in.

 

I just washed my jeans a week ago after wearing them for a month and a half, so I'm hesitant to do another wash (first pair of good selvedge denim).

 

I tried to scrape w/ things but the crud was kind of tacked into the weave. Next up I tried dabbing/scrubbing with a damp cloth. This got most of the smell and all visible gunk out but sucked out a LOT of the dye, leaving me with a random blue spot on my dark jeans :(. There's still some lingering odor where it was and I want to get it out but not pull out all the dye.

 

Any tips/redirects would be much appreciated.Thanks!

In the future just dab, don't scrub. Freezing them should get rid of whatever smell is left. Or just febreze them.

Does Clarks not make their desert boot in beeswax in a lighter shade of brown anymore?

Pair on the left is a pair I just got in today, and on the right is a pair I got in August of last year (pair on the right is a half size too big and I wanted to get a truer fit 'cause I think that'll make them wear in better or something, lol).
