anyone has some cool pics of slim jeans with no/minimal stack, cuffed?
post #14929 of 16378

Okay, So I got some Nudie TLJ black/black on eBay. Stupid me forgot to ask him if he machine washed them before I purchased and what do you know he said yes -_- I know black jeans don't fade that cool but did machine mashing them do any significant damage? I must add I got them for $50 with shipping. Let me know thanks.

I've read other threads about stacking. Most people prefer stacking on slim fit jeans. No stacking on straight fit jeans and pants/chinos.

 

How does the rule apply to slim fit twill pants?

 

Also what do you guys think of stacks on straight jeans?

Does anyone have the organic bleach white nudie tight long jeans they are trying to get rid of? Need a size 29x32,34 or 28x32,34. I have been looking forever for these pleaseeeee let me know. Really want these!

jeans with stacks > jeans without stacks
Cuffed can look alright, but usually better with heritage-esque fits, not GQ ones

Jeans without both cuff and stacking look ridiculous
Slim fit twill pants should be the same as chinos, you can stack/cuff/hem it should all look alright with appropiate footwear

Straight jeans should be stacked(/cuffed) as should all sorts of jeans

I was thinking of something like this actually:

post #14934 of 16378

So I tapered the sides of two similar dress shirts at different points in time with my tailor. Both of these are Brooks Brothers shirts. One of them is tapered and sewn inward but the other one, the seam is on the outside. I think aesthetically, the shirt sewn inwards is not as appealing. Are there any structural integrity problems sewn with one way or other other?

Top looks like it was nicely single needle flat-felled, which is how it's supposed to be on most (possibly all) BB shirts and oxfords in general, though most brands use double needle.  

 

Bottom looks like the tailor just turned the shirt inside out and sewed the sides up quickly, which is sometimes the case with certain types of casual sport shirts, but not oxfords.  This is a lot weaker than flat-felling a seam.  You could theoretically rip the second one's stitching apart with your hands unless he did some crazy finishing on the inside.

Does this warrant me to go back and request him to redo the bottom shirt? Is that just the lazy way of tapering the shirt? He might have been really busy that particular week and decided to take the easy way out.

I would say so.  Can you take a picture of the inside of the seam?

post #14938 of 16378

First pic is the seam sewn inside, a single needle construction. The bottom pic is the inside of the shirt from a different angle.

Wait, that's the inside of the bad shirt?  I can't really tell too well from the pictures, but it looks like he basically started doing it the right way, but never completely finished.  I think it would be reasonable for you to go to him and ask him to just finish the flat felling (which is essentially just taking the flap of fabric on the inside and sewing it to the torso) for no charge.  Bring the first shirt with you and just tell him that's exactly how you want it and how shirts are supposed to be finished.

Yea that's the inside of the shirt. He basically sewn the seams inside. 

 

Gotcha..He actually did three of my shirts (all from the same time period) like that, so I'll make a case to him.
