I've always had a hard time with trouser length, opening width, and where to place the break in regard to these factors.

 

Thanks for not helping that at all ;)

I'd relegate them to weekend shopping at the supermarket, or roll up the pants a bit, and pair them with loafers and no socks, and a long sleeve shirt -- no tie-- a five o'clock shadow, and go for a casual weekend chic look, that may work. smile.gif

The problem is I know a lot of tailors who won't even try taking an inch off a jacket...

While that jacket might say off the rack, taking an inch off an off the rack jacket shouts off the rack.

These alterations tailors are also known as alterations tailors who know what they are doing.

My apologies, I guess it depends on the area as here on the east coast of Canada, I have yet to come across a tailor who would shorten a jacket for me.

LOL nope. I just got to have a fun afternoon doing video shoot downtown one day for this show and thought I'd share. Whether you watch past the first 45 seconds is up to you.

Thanks for all the advice. I might see if I can untaper the pants a bit. Not too keen on shortening them though. The stacking is mostly a problem when I standing still anyway, just as Charlie mentioned.

This evening, I am attending the annual garden party at the Frick Collection, and, even though my last two days' worth of postings would be more apropos of a garden party than today's attire, I decided that I wanted to see what a bow tie would look like on me with a conventional dark suit, in this case a navy stripe. Here are the results.

Re: shortening the jacket. All jackets fit differently, obviously. That jacket could be shortened by half an inch at the most and be ok I think. I am not sure what you meant by the pants being too old, I just got them 2 months ago from Epaulet :x. Thanks for the comment though!

Todays jacket did not photograph well, tried my best. The tie pairing may be somewhat obvious but I am trying to slowly experiment with this jacket and not go hog wild. My other choice for pants today was some navy cotton trousers instead of these ivory white ones. Have a good 7/11 day folks.

Jacket-Cantarelli wool/linen
Shirt-BB
Tie-BB
Pants-BB Milano

While I agree with this generally, with a skilled tailor and the right jacket, success can be had. For instance, this jacket had about an inch taken off of it. The pockets are a little low once you look for it, but I think it looks good:
