Question: I've seen folks on this thread talk about slimming or tapering trousers. As a few recent fits evidence, I'm in need of such a service. Could someone who has done this please PM me and give me a sense of a) roughly how much it cost (we're not talking Kiton, so I need to do a cost/benefit analysis); and b) lessons learned (i.e., anyone have this done and have to scrap the trou because it ruined the fit). I don't want to derail the thread, so please PM.
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 take serious issue with this. Most ties SAY they are handmade, but most are stitched (aside from the spine, hidden stitch) using a machine. Yes the machine is hand operated, but it takes so much less time and work to get that type of tie made when compared to one that never sees a machine, but there are very few completely "handmade ties" out there.
