Welcome, but I don't think that that is true.  I used to spend too much time in CE, and in general, the discussions were of the same tenor as this one.

So, in other Hermès news, I recently learned (through this article), which contractor in Germany makes Hermès' knit ties. I had wondered about this since when I bought my first Hermès knit tie a while back and noticed that the label said "Made in Germany".
It's this company:

http://www.ascot.de/

Since they also make ties under their own name, I was curious how those would compare to the Hermès-labeled ones, so I ordered one, and lo and behold, you get almost exactly the same product. The only difference seems to be that the ones made for Hermès are 0.5 cm narrower:





Aside from the minimal difference in width, everything else appears to be the same - same construction, same "crunchy" fabric, same everything. Except of course for the price: the "Ascot"-labelled ones cost only 60 €, vs. around 130 for a Hermès one (in a boutique in the EU).

If only everything Hermès was available directly from some contractor...

The Knottery sells them for even less

Conrad Wu and Drake's use the same tiemaker.

Just bought a pair of Dickies last week. High rise, full leg. Thinking about getting them tapered for a carrot fit, or maybe just leaving them full and pin rolling a bit.

Chris Gibbs at Union Los Angeles apparently buys cheap Dickies gets them tapered.

On that note how does one ask a tailor to taper pants with no outseam? Is that possible? I imagine they would have to remake the pant leg. I guess they could go in through the inseam?

AFAIK, you can taper from the inseam. That's how a lot of raw denim guys do it, so they preserve the selvedge.

Don't you usually taper from the inseam, not the outseam?

depending on the cut of the pants its perfectly OK to taper from the inseam. its not very difficult

Thanks fellas. I have been under the impression that you stay away from the flat felled inseam when you can. All my tailoring experience is from trouses though, never had jeans taken in

Woa!

well yes, most companies or tailored cannot reproduce the flat felled seam on jeans. so this is the reason they take from the outsem

 

the choice becomes then to remove it altogether in the alteration or find someone skilled enough to take it a part, cut away the excess for tapering and pit it back.

 

it can be done, but guess its a matter of picking your poison.

If you mean the blue and white striped thing underneath, that looks like your standard Bengal striped shirt.

If you mean the green thing, that's a fisherman's smock (or their take on it, as traditional ones typically don't have chest pockets).

Lots of nautical-inspired companies have them. Armor Lux, Saint James, etc. Also some vintage ones floating around here and there on eBay sometimes.

Arpenteur made or still might make a nice version as well.
