Besides, little Ralphie is of such an age that you'd have to stage an archeological dig along Moshulu Parkway to find his bubbe's goods, and then you'd have to peel off the clear vinyl slipcovers from the upholstery.

This RTW suit looks more lived in than anything I own. Pressed the trousers this morning and they are all frumpy already, and the shoulders went from ill-fitting to decent-fitting and slightly drooping over time. I love it. If the armholes were higher this would be sweet.

 

Makes me wonder if the MTM I currently use is really worth it and if I should rather stay with this brand or go full bespoke. The armholes in my MTM coats are so big I can fit a leg in them, and the tailor's obtuseness on this matter doesn't help.

That jacket looks really nice!! Not onboard with the shirt, though.

Please, please please, pretty please ... button your jacket. It makes the whole thing look infinitely better. Great tie, details?

The tie is cheap silk, bought on a rush for a wedding. I took it apart and re-made the slip stitch and the bar tacks, though - guess that makes it semi-handmade lol8[1].gif

 

You know what I dislike about this jacket? The closed quarters. That's why I wear it unbuttoned most of the time shog[1].gif

I've taken a part a few ties as well, mostly to narrow them a little. Didn't occur to me that they now can be classified as "hand made" biggrin.gif

So did we ever settle what constitutes "district checks" and "gun club"? I know it was discussed in the good taste thread the other day. Anyway, I don't think this SC qualifies as either, but then again I am confused puzzled.gif

Aren't all ties hand made? I would think it impossible for a machine to stitch the center seam in the manner which it is, hidden stitch or whatever.

I will say that just about every tie ever says "handmade".
post #47068 of 78717

Well, yes, the slip stitch is usually hand made, but the bar tacks are machine made.

 

And most of the time the slip stitch doesn't end in a loop, so it's stiff and snaps easily. I like to re-make it with the loop on all ties that don't come with it.

 

Pingson - awesome jacket. And the shoulder fit seems pretty good.

I mean it a lot of cases I would imagine what you are paying for is the labor of doing it. It is a pain in the ass. I have done it. For higher end stuff, the multi folds obviously add to cost, but so do fabrics.
