A wise choice for a long thin neck is a tall collar band with rather long points? No?
post #15707 of 33197
A taller collar can be nice, but a lean fellow with a long lean face may not benefit from long points, if the effect is to emphasize the vertical element. So it depends on face shape and collar shape, in addition to neck length.

I like a moderate spread, myself.

Thanks.  I'm hardly Ermenegildo Zegna but I know this suit does NOT fit me at all.  Everywhere is wrong.  I'm NOT posting photos but suffice to say as soon as I tried it on I knew it didn't fit and NOT by a little.  It was way off.  So I went to a tailor with it afterwards and even the Tailor said unwearable and unfixable because everything is too tight and too short and not enough fabric to fix.

 

I'm NOT even mentioning who made the suit, but I'm just curious if anyone else had that same problem I had???? 

I'm curious to know does the person / company who made the suit make you another one for FREE?? 

Or would they expect me to pay full price for another one since this suit can NOT be fixed??

 

I'm waiting to hear from them but I was hoping to get some feedback so I could have realistic expectations???

 

Thanks

If it's that bad why did you walk out of the shop with it?

You might want to give a full run down. Type of shop. Type of purchase. Most of us are too lazy to check all the messages to see if you already have shog[1].gif

What are the advantages, if any, of low-cut armholes?

Nicola,

I am being a little vague because I do NOT want to name names.  It was a Made to Measure suit.  Measurements were taken and then it was mailed to me.  So there was no shop so to speak.  So I'm just wondering if anyone has been through that before where they did this and the suit didn't fit.  If suit was too big you can salvage it and alter to it to fit.  But when too small and tight there just is NOT enough fabric to make things bigger and longer.

 

I'm curious to know in such a situation... does the person / company who made the suit make you another one for FREE?? 

Or would they expect me to pay full price for another one since this suit can NOT be fixed??

 

I'm waiting to hear from them but I was hoping to get some feedback so I could have realistic expectations???

 

Thanks

You don't need to name names but it would help to fully understand exactly what happened.

Who measured you? The maker? Some third party? Self?

Is the suit made to the measurements?

If the maker took the measurements it's their suit and their problem. The less involved they were the less it's their problem.

The only one I can think of is that it is easier to get the jacket on.

Right. If the OP or OP's friend, i.e., not the company, took the measurements than he's SOL.

Shoe construction question. These look to be glued, yes?

http://www.afinepairofshoes.co.uk/collections/alfred-sargent-exclusive-collection-price-asc/products/alfred-sargent-exclusive-ramsey

Also looks like there are only a few tacks on the heel, shoes look great, construction seems lacking.

Thoughts?

I would guess that the stitching on the sole is concealed in channels. Ask. My experience with AS is with their shoes made for Brooks Brothers, and those are of excellent quality.

Absolutely not glued. Nails in soles are mostly decorative. AS exclusive is supposed to have excellent quality all around and is on par if not better than C&J handgrade.

Alfred Sargent Exclusive Collection is a very good quality shoe. I have a pair from recent production and they are not far from full on Northhampton Hand Grade quality. They certainly exceed a C&J benchgrade. No worries about quality

Goodyear welted, closed channel stitching is why you don't see any stitching in the sole.
