post #12886 of 33195
I accidentally shortened the sleeves an inch too much on two of my UNIS button downs and am wondering if it'd be a good idea to have a tailor chop the sleeves and give me a mid bicep length on them. Has anyone ever done this successfully? Thoughts? I really like them and would like to continue to wear them.

Thanks!

I like Epaulet trousers, but I wear a 34 inseam regularly, and I would like to try cuffs on my next pants.  Can anyone recommend brands with similar (not much fabric in the back) cuts, but longer inseams.

Thank you Ich_Dien. Very helpful and informative.

 

Though am still not able to put my thoughts together for imagining such a shirt, I have a feeling that it would be impressive.

Can anyone recommend how to go about getting a leather jacket re-lined?

I've spent months looking for a good replacement and haven't found any jackets I really like as much as the one I have. I like how it fits, the leather has held up very well, and the jacket is really warm, but the lining is worn out and one pocket has a hole in it from carrying my keys. I want to find a good tailor that works with leather jackets, but I don't know how to determine whether they actually do good work or they are just a hack that will take my money and ruin my jacket. Any tips on how to find and screen tailors for this type of work are greatly appreciated.

M+O was an American Eagle offshoot that doesn't exist anymore.

Cannot find it anywhere... If anyone knows where I could find that blazer or an identical one I would be forever grateful!

I have a smaller wrist. What kind of watch should I look into?

My 3 year old and 5 year old daughters are very happy with their Hello Kitty watches.  The watches are white, but also have a walkie talkie function, so that may be an additional selling point for you.
