I have another tailor that I use for more delicate things, such as suits, and he charges $24 per shirt.  He is located in an expensive part of town with expensive real estate, and he has a fantastic reputation, so that would explain the price premium.

 



Most of the area I live in would meet that definition. Sleeves cost 10 to shorten (from the shoulder) ten to taper sleeves, fifteen to taper the shirt on the side seams like yours does. just the taper would be 20 normally, 18 for me, or 15 because I'm having a bunch of other shit done to it. She'll occasionally toss me a freebie like replacing all the leather buttons on a tweed SC if I ask (I let her keep the old ones) or free collar extenders, etc. Last time I had her taper some chinos, she didn't charge me for the hem either.

hmm, guess I'll just have to keep shopping around until I find a tailor who's not charging an arm and leg for such services.

Half size up + wide. Thats what I do, EE isn't wide enough for me in most shoes. I wear mainly clarks, never had a problem.

Clarks doesn't make wide sizes. I tried my brother's on and they fit perfectly length wise but my pinky toes were suffocating

Try Scott (Unlucky). I've bought a bag and belt from him. Top notch stuff in your price range. Google his name and/or dountmourneorganize. I have to go or else I'd get the link for you, sorry.

Hey everyone names Kris, pretty new to the higher fashion game and I'm starting to build a wardrobe.  Quick question i have a pair of black cole haans and I want to know if they can be worn for play and if so what pants would go with them or if there really only work appropriate. Thanks for all the help!

Nobody here likes Cole Haans, especially what appears to be patent leather. But if that's what you can afford, go for it. But I don't think those can be worn casually, you'd best stick to using them at work.

Whatever happened to Atelier LaDurance?
post #8503 of 15915

i just bought a pair of clark DBs. they're just slightly too big so i was wondering if i should get some sort of padding for the back heel area? if so, where can i get these that are a bit thick. i've used them in the past for dress shoes but they're pretty thin and i don't think they would help enough

Thicker socks/liner socks under the ones you're wearing, tie them a bit tighter and they won't slide, even with room in the toe box.

 

One of the few products Land's End still makes that I'm not disappointed by now is their ragg wool socks, which are bulletproof, thicker than the sheep they came off, and incredibly comfortable. they're great for making a shoe fit a bit snugger.

I don't see any way you could use these for casual dress.  Keep them regulated to your suiting wardrobe.
