hello, i bought a lanvin spiderweb tee shirt. its gorgeous and by the far the most expensive t-shirt ive ever puchased.

 

also my first purchase by lanvin.

 

now i notice they have just a big lanvin card with the code markings saying what type of tee it is and size

 

are they usually like this? i mean from balmain brands or dsquared2....they have this little tags with descriptions on it...u know what i mean.

 

so lanvin doesnt do that? just wanna be sure. i know its real but it seemed "fake" with just the lanvin card since its SO high quality.

or OSB, Viberg, or just resole an old pair.

Is OSB quality on par w/ Alden?  Pricing seems similar--both made in USA--both use horween...

 

Maybe I should hold out for a killer pair from Viberg...

I'd look at the OSB thread to get a handle on that. I don't hate the Viberg idea though, if you have the means.

I bought the following Uniqlo shirt. The fabric seems great and soft, however when I'm ironing it, crinkles appear on the shirt, especially on the collars. To name a few, I have ironed BB, CT and BR shirts without much difficulty, but his particular shirt is giving me a hard time to get it ironed correctly.

Hey guys, I bought this two recently and have been getting mixed reviews on them. Could I get some feedback? Especially the jacket; how do I make it work?

So, getting a denim jacket taken in / slimmed. I took it to my tailor today and he said there was nothing he could do because of the way it was constructed. It's a RO DRKSHDW worker jacket which is similar to a standard Levi's jean jacket in construction. Should I just leave it? Has any one had a jean jacket tailored before?

Thanks

I have.
Pre-tailoring, it gave me a (   )-shape if I had my arms up and looked good from the front if I had my arms down, but then there was excess material in the back, right behind my shoulders. So yeah, I just showed how I wanted it to fit (with the help of the tailor and his needles) and he said it'd be done in a few days. And this was the result:

What he did were those two seams(though the thread is on the inside) on the sides behind the shoulders (the middle one was there from the start). The horizontal seam looks exactly like before, and since he took off the leather-patch and then put it on over one of the seams, and also made both seams "lay" over the un-touched fabric on both sides, it honestly looks as if it was made this way from the start smile.gif

pic of inside, he simply "folded" the fabric in very neatly

I'm also currently getting some fabric removed from a denim jacket. Your tailor could be right and it could be the construction of the jacket. Best thing to do is get a second opinion, but denim jackets in general should be alterable. Maybe not all though.

Anyone know where to get MMM GAT style laces please?
post #12689 of 15217

How does this fit? It's a zara blazer, so naturally the tail is short.

looks like it fits pretty well, just don't ever wear it with shirt not tucked in
