The best reason to get the hole repaired is so that it doesn't get any bigger, of course.
Hey everyone, what's the consensus in regards to tailoring suit pants?
I tried some on, but the waist is about 1-1.5" too big and the leg could use some slimming (~1" from the crotch downwards). Is this too much tailoring that'll throw off the fit of the pants?
The suit jacket is spot-on, however.
If it's a $4K watch, I'm guessing it's a mechanical. In which case, it's well overdue for a service.
A full service involved uncasing and dismantling the movement, cleaning the parts, and reassembling; adding new lubricant; and finally, regulating the watch (by adjusting the regulator device which fine-tensions the balance spring). Oh yeah, and putting the movement back in the case I guess.
It will probably run much more accurately after that.
If you leave a mechanical watch without servicing for many years (and ten years is already pushing things a bit), the lubricant will be old and dried-out, there will be dust and fine grains of metal floating around in there, and the parts will wear out more and more quickly. So do what I say, not what I do: stump up and get it serviced NOW.
@JilSlander, I don't think I would slim the legs at all. They already look to be the right width and going any slimmer might cause some bunching or pulling in places. Just alter the waist and the hem and you should be fine.
Thanks, the pics fail to show that:
1) the pants are almost falling off my waist when I walk or move
2) it's very baggy from the crotch down (as in I can pinch more than 1" of fabric)
