So I have a question about what is possible by tailoring slacks.
I thrifted several pairs of wool slacks, which all fit nicely in the waist, but the legs are much too large (ie too large around my leg). They sort of look like MC Hammers parachute pants. My chicken legs don't help.
Is it possible, or reasonable might be a better question, for a tailor to refit the legs giving them a much slimmer fit through the thighs?
I've been waiting to make this post for awhile now.
Looking to get some great advice from everyone here.
The first suit I'm going to post (grey suit) I would like to know about what alterations I should consider in the jacket. I know the sleeves for sure, and am thinking about taking it in a bit. Any thoughts? I am also contemplating putting on a ticket pocket.
As for the pants, I obviously need them hemmed, I am thinking of doing a 2 inch cuff with little to no break. Thoughts?
For the second suit (blue suit) I am looking for suggestions on the jacket. It is not a great suit (Calvin Klein, before I found Styleforum), but I still think it likes good, and warrants a better fit.
Any additional suggestions would be much appreciated.
