I believe they have a new cut that is for more athletic proportions. I'm a pretty big fan of j crew's stuff all around. I have a feeling the bulk of my wardrobe in school will come from them due to the price. Hopefully, I'll be able to swing for a suit supply suit for residency interviews if my BBGF suit gives up the ghost by then. Given that it currently needs mending and a small reweave... I think that day will come sooner than I'd hope.

My initial try on of the Grey Fresco Formosa:

 

 

Haven't taken any good one's yet (post-hemming/adding buttons sleeve on etc). No other alterations have been done yet (no waist, etc)

Here are better pix.

So the trousers are labeled 46 but I took out the waist as much as possible so they're probably 48. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lol. You missed a belt loop.

^ I realized it as I was taking a leak :lol:

 

Came back from the tailor. He was off 3/4 of an inch. How is he worse than my neighborhood tailor?! I knew he measured in a hurry so I kept on telling him no breaks. And today I walk for 20-30 minutes from the office to find out that there is a FULL FREAKING BREAK! I'll get my trousers once he fixes both and never go back. The KW trousers looked lovely with the above shirt and tie.

I would leave the waist alone. Let the suit break in if you haven't before doing more alterations. 

 

I didn't break in my suits because they hanged in my closet for 3 months or so.

Noodles, I suspect this tailor has done you a favor. From what I've seen of those pants, they are not the right cut for "no break".

We need some crotch pics to determine.

Is it me or does Noodles have more issues getting trousers altered than anyone else on the history of SF?
post #23739 of 37396
Just issues in general.

MiC vs MiI:

Given an absence of information (information asymmetry), I'll go Italy over China (screening). But if we have information, there is no reason (besides possibly political or ethical co siderations) to pay any attention to where something is made.

Out of curiosity (because changing your mind is a windmill I don't want to charge at), Noodles, would you buy a slightly inferior product which is MiI and pass up a slightly superior product which is MiC?

Also, suspenders make it easier to get the break/no break you desire

What about made in Italy by Chinese workers

That doesn't happen with the brands we talk about...
post #23743 of 37396
What about firms saying 'made in USA' so they can charge more because they're 'bringing jobs home' and whatever, but employing undocumented workers.
