I am not talking about pant length. I am talking about the execution of the hem. See that "line" that is visible 3-4 inches above the bottom of the pants? That's where the foldover has been sewn down.

That's lazy work, and it looks like crap. The tailor left way too much room for error.

Looks like crap for 2 reasons:

1) You can see the line very obviously, and it looks that much more out of place being halfway up your leg.

2) The whole area between the end of the pants and that line has a doubled amount of pants. That makes it stiffer, and makes it break less naturally vs a properly hemmed pantaloon.

Saks once gave me a pair of pants tailored like this, and I was like WTF? GTFO. Redo that shit. And they did. Should be less than two inches of doubled up shit.

I have confirmed on two different Sinatras and two different Gables because these shoes are so great that one pair is not enough.

So true, not everyone seems to have the same issue thought. Everything I have so far is on DG70. Fits great in my bramhall, astaire. Rothschild a little loser on the vamp and canturbury boots are very tight.

Every time I try on a tg73 there is just so much room around the vamp and toes. A big void basically. The lacing is normally ok on some models but I tried on a Westminster the other week and the Laces closed right up. No "v" at all. I still have laces that don't fully close on my Bramhalls which I have worn 30 odd times.

The deco always seems good too but it's just easy to stick to dg70 or have some amendments made to the last, which I may have done on my next pair. I am looking for a Sj2 new pattern in v.rioja. If I am brave I may go for an amended last or a narrow width. Or just stick to what I know and go Dg70. People rarely have SJ on dg70 that I see. It's good to be a bit different!!!

He makes a good point, heck I knew what he was talking about before he pointed it out.

 

However there are different ways one can go about it.

To be fair, I think the only times I have seen him comment on SF lately, was to comment on hems.

There's consistency there at least...

You need to go to the architecture/housing threads
