Anyone know where I can get this tie?

Vanda has it but I want to know if there are shops in the US that sell this.

Blue-White Shepherd's Check

post #23552 of 37392
Should have ordered one with your pants....Kent Wang. I believe NMWA has a blue/navy shepherds check too.

You will find a blue shepherd's check everywhere. Here's one example: http://www.kentwang.com/ties/shepherds-check-navy.html

People started looking at me as if I didn't belong there. When I finally arrived, the shop looked like a dump but found a fellow Korean gentleman at the door. He was an older gentleman and I had a bit of trouble understanding what he was saying at certain points. I just made sure that I got 1.75" cuffs and no breaks on my trousers. Now I can start wearing all of my Formosa suits and start my journey on OJT with the light gray Kent Wang trousers. 


Kim's Custom? Did you get a free cat with the alterations?

No, too far from my office. They serve sesame fried cats there???

I went to Sammy Lee. I hope he's good. I will flip out if he effs up my trousers.

 

Quite a review on YELP.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Sammy Lee at Capitol Hill Tailor Shop is the best tailor in the world. He can sew anything. His craftsmanship and skill are world class. I live in New York for half of every year and I save all my tailoring for him. He can alter any garment perfectly; he can copy any garment you own and make exactly the right adjustments for your size. His handwork is exquisite. He can tailor men's and women's clothing with exquisite precision and craftsmanship. His work is world class. His prices are MODEST for the quality of work he does. There is no tailoring challenge he cannot meet. You will never find a better tailor. He has relined coats and jackets for my husband; he has copied complicated dresses and suits for me and our daughter; he has transformed expensive cashmere and silk jackets for me, and has also patched nightgowns and pajamas! He has made breathtaking pillows for my home out of antique fabrics I collect. I cannot recommend him too highly. He can make any dress or suit you want -- just bring him the fabric of your choice. He can make a superb man's suit from an excellent selection of fabrics he keeps in his shop. He can repair holes in sweaters and conceal moth holes in woolen coats. He finishes every garment beautifully. If you have a favorite dress or suit ,and would like it in a new fabric or color, or with the size, style, or length adjusted, he can do it flawlessly. You can ask for fittings through the process if you want; you can ask him to make the sleeves any length you want. If you are seeking a repair, he can patch a hole with fabric from inside the pocket, from a too-long hem; or you can bring in new fabric you select. He can let out any jacket, pants or dress, or take them in. He can cuff pants or finish them un-cuffed. He sews on buttons and replaces zippers -- He does it all! If you ask him for a price up front, he will tell you. He is THE BEST!

You're just getting the pants taken up & cuffed, right? He'd have to be pretty awful to mess that up..

post #23558 of 37392

Haha yea, I'm pretty sure I can hem and cuff my own pants if I owned a sewing machine

I just hope he puts no breaks and cuffs it right. I am always very weary of tailors, if they're new. 

 

Found this place called Turnball and Asser or something.$190 for this.

You could do it without a machine by hand. I grew tired of my tailor always erring +/- 0,25" so I said enough is enough. I've started hemming my own trousers. By hand. And putting a cuff on them. Now, all my trousers measures 30" inseam and 1,75" cuff. Couldn't be happier.

I think I've seen a portable sewing machine that looks like a stapler. Maybe I should fold up my pants and just have at it with that gadget.

Just order from Vanda. Or check Hober. He's always great.

Lol, make sure to post the results if you do! Actually, I have a sewing machine available. But I prefer to do it by hand. We're all looking for hand made garments after all, aren't we?

Save your $$ for another Formosa and just use a plain ol' stapler. Quick AND frugal
