Maybe these jeans are too tight on you, or maybe you are wearing them too low on your hips.  That amount of stretching at the crotch after only two weeks definitely isn't common.

I don't think a tailor can change the size of the yoke (shoulder seam), but I may be wrong...

First, since your abbreviations are your own...you don't like wearing long-sleeved shirts rolled up when it gets warm, so you're looking for some good short-sleeved options?

After that...'Are there any alterations a tailor can preform on shirts pulling up wards when raising your arms?' I've got literally no idea what you mean here.

I could guess you're asking about difficulty with the fit when you raise your ams, which is kinda bound to happen unless you're constantly at parties where you're throwing your hands in the air like you just don't care. To some extent, this is just the way dress shirts work (they're not knits, which obviously provide more mobility). If it really feels that restrictive, I'd suggest you have the wrong size (too small).


'seems nothing ever fits me in the shoulder correctly, a lot of times the shoulder seam actually falls on my upper arm, If I size down then I have a shirt too tight and still shoulders that are to long.'

If the shoulder seam is falling on your upper arm, the shirt is usually way too big (it should roughly sit at the point where your collar bone drops off to your arm and not extend further). If it's too tight sizing down but too big in the shoulders, where is it tight exactly? I'm envisioning this dude with a giant gut and/or man tits with normally broad shoulders. Details, dude...pictures are even better.

Oh, and generally, unless trying to make some kind of hipsteresque statement, short-sleeved dress shirts are awful. Just don't do it.

Sorry for the vagueness, basically I'm trying to find a few decent short sleeve options besides the usual Vneck T to combat the heat and humidity in they day. I do have a broader chest and shoulders, I used to work out years ago, and yo'd yo'd with weight in recent years . I'm 170 pounds 5' 10" 42" chest & waist is 36", I'm sure others would say I'm over weight but compared to the fat ass I was years ago I'm ok with 170, did it all on my own and could drop more if I had to.

The tightness I seem to run into with most brands I've tried (Jcrew, LEC, others I've forgotten). is in the shoulder and upper arms as the sleeves just slide off my shoulder and sit on my upper arm. I would try some better brands, but not sure what would work for my build.

Check for Silent on Yoox, they have a good run of similar hoodies without the shittyness of being Allsaints.

Does anyone know if Context will mark down for international orders to save on duty? Got dinged during the Porter sale and if his can be avoided I can expedite shipping.

Anybody have experience with Dries Van Noten suiting? Could I get away with sizing up in a suit? I think the blazer would be fine, I'm more worried about the pants being huge.

I got two chino's recently and they both state to machine wash warm and then iron dry. 

Will the pants be damaged if I put them into the dryer?

Is it better just to handwash and then lay these flat on a towel?

 

Just curious, never had pants which said to iron dry before, only sweaters and cardigans?

Never heard of iron dry before. I wouldn't bother hand washing them. They are 100% cotton, right? If so, just put them in the wash using either warm or cold water. Then hang dry and iron them. You should be fine.

I don't think that means what you think it means.  Just machine wash them then hang them up to dry.  You probably shouldn't put anything you like in the dryer anyway.

Can I get darts put in a plaid (flannel) shirt? Or will that just goof up how the shirt looks?

pair of BR chinos say the same thing. I used to bother, now I don't. They've not exploded or faded particularly. I think you'll be okay.
