I can believe that he can't believe it. Sure, maybe there's only one guy who can really take apart a jacket and put it back together, but for the basics, I'd expect more in DC.

As for the noodley pictures, I was more disturbed by the open toilet than his K-Feetz™

I knew you'd appreciate my bare feet!

For major work, I can only trust Fields. He is the best in DC that I know. He usually has a backlog of about 2 wks regardless of type of work needed.

For minor work, I don't see why my neighborhood alteration lady cannot shorten jacket sleeves and pants. She did a good job on the pants that I tore right through the middle and other work.

^ this is why. It needs a little shape...not much, but some.

Really?!
I had no wok done on the Glenn plaid jacket

Looks like it to me...maybe it's the angle but I don't think so. I've noticed slight sizing variation in different fabrics....I suppose it's just the nature of handmade suits. Not a big deal, get it nipped.

That's racist!

My wife's feet are Korean. They are also very small. Like 220-225 MM. They are the same size as my hand.

Ah, the Noodles thread. Where nothing is off the table.

Anybody have interesting plumbing experiences of late?

@Claghorn I think you mean 220 - 225 MM (millimetres)

220 cm (centimetres) would mean she has feet that are approximately 86 1/2" long, which in that case, I'd feel very sorry for you smile.gif

Yea, the chest and front can be trimmed a bit -- to quote Field "you don't need all that drape"

Sleeve shortening, pant hemming, and nipping the waist is not what I'd consider 'jacket surgery'...

post #19991 of 37395

Murl is spot on...the jacket needs some cleaning up in the mid-chest / waist area.

 

Get a pro to do the work. 

post #19992 of 37395

Agreed on the chest/waist shaping, albeit minimal.

I got my Formosa Minnis flannel nipped in the waist a bit but none of my other jackets from them. It might be the way they cut flannel as opposed to other cloth. Or random chance.

Pretty sure that's the case...my flannel has less taper than the others too.
