Thanks, I will keep looking then!

Hi Everyone, I am looking for a square Baldinini umbrella.

 

If anyone has one for sale please contact me via PM.

 

Thank you.

Quick question...or two.

 

I'm having a three piece suit made and I'm tempted to go for cut away pockets on the jacket - I imagine this will give the suit a more fitted look - am I right?

 

Also, with regard to pleats, what are the aesthetic benefits?

There's actually a whole mess of them in the clearance section on the BB website.

There are none. Pleats are for fat old dudes.

Is it possible to lengthen a waistcoat/vest if I have the material?

I have a great 3-piece, but the waistcoat is too short by 1.5-2.5 inches. However, I will be re-cutting the pants, and will have extra suit material.

To my understanding, a tailor will have to replace the silk backing of the waistcoat while adding the extra material.

Get custom-made shirts or add darts to your existing shirts.

Have the sides taken in.

If you're trying to find a rare pair of shoes and don't mind settling for a smaller width that you plan to be stretched at a cobbler, what is the greatest difference in width to be safe?

ie: if most of my comfortable shoes have a 4.4in shoe width, is a 4.0in width too small to be stretched to 4.4 without ruining the shoe?

This is very hard to say. It depends heavily on construction and last.

That said, assuming that both of these factors are similar; If they're bruchers, then you will have more room to breath, I would say maximum 3/8 of an inch. If they're balmorals, I would say an 1/4.

Would this color have been a special order? The Alden shop only seems to have them in black, burnished tan and burgundy.

 

Any advice appreciated!

you do realize that shoe is black calfskin right?


Upper leather selected from the top grades of the finest tanneries in the world. Natural leather insole of pure vegetable tannage. Unsurpassed for breathable comfort and long wear, it assumes over time the contours of your foot shape giving a truly custom quality to the fit. Every Alden New England shoe carries a tempered steel shank, precisely contoured and triple ribbed for extra strength.
Carefully crafted in the USA.

SZ 8.5 E US

Sorry! I meant to post this link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/250928967421?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_3453wt_952

 

Looks dark brown to me.
