post #22126 of 31073

Hi, guys!

 

I am about to buy two jackets from Suit Supply, and I can already see that the sleeves will end up being too long, so I am going to take it to the tailor to fix the sleeves, however the only problem is that the jackets have functional buttons. That means that I have to pay more for get it tailored. It will cost $78 pr jacket. Do you think that is too much? I live in Norway, so everything is bacially more expensive, but to compare with non-functional buttons, it "only" costs $68. So, is it worth to pay $78 for a $300 jacket?

2 shirts that fit

Get more shirts!! since you mentioned you have weird proportions I would try MTM. Luxire makes great shirts and they're cheap. Order one at a time until you nail the fit. Measure your best fitting shirt and make slight adjustments as necessary, there is a discussion thread on luxire with a lot of good advice. Good luck.

Not everything needs to be slim fit, people! Stop the insanity!
Ok- you like baggy clothes. Sure whatever. But that wasn't my question. I want to know if anyone knows where I could purchase one. (By "one" I'm referring to a slim fit shaggy dog type sweater).

EDIT: Looking for leather loafers with a thin leather sole that will wear in really nicely like these with creases/patina. I know these are gucci but looking for something less expensive.

You can either find a different Sears or order online. Pretty much the only options. What's the problem with ordering online?

In his post from 5+ days ago, he indicated that he needed the pants within about a week. I suggested he order online, and perhaps pay a few dollars extra for 2nd day delivery. Apparently, he rejected that suggestion, and now needs the pants in a big hurry.

In response to his follow-up question on the extent of the LE selection at a Sears store, I did inform him that the Lands' End departments in Sears stores tend to carry only a small fraction of the items available from LE online.

And with that recap, we've now all been brought up to speed. smile.gif

I'm not in any way unsympathetic to his plight, although this is a perfect example of why it's sometimes a mistake to put off shopping until the last minute. And, I guess, an illustration of how buying online can sometimes be faster and easier than buying from one's local brick-and-mortar store. (Although local Sears stores are often a great convenience when it comes to returning LE items purchased online.)

Is it a legal requirement that products are labeled what country they are made in? If so, are there exceptions to this? ( Quantity, or for export only )

As to labels that also identify where the components were made, is that also a legal thing or a marketing thing?

Assuming you're asking about the United States, a reasonable layman's explanation of the requirements may be found at http://business.ftc.gov/documents/bus21-threading-your-way-through-labeling-requirements-under-textile-and-wool-acts

Can a suit still have the natural shoulder look, while correcting/padding for uneven (thanks to previously broken collar bone) sloped shoulders?

Looking for sources to purchase replacement buttons (not gold) to tone down a navy blazer that came with black buttons. I've never bought different buttons before. I'm in the US.

The word is "haberdashery".  Go to a large department store.  Follow the signs/strange scent of lavender and urine until you get there.  When you do you'll find a Mary Poppins wishlist of ribbons and wool and thread and things...and...buttons.  At which point you will realise you're surrounded by curious women of a certain age, eyeing you suspiciously and wondering if you're lost or a potential murderer or both.  Identify one with a corporate badge on her cardigan (preferably matching the brand of the store you're in), and beg for help.

Those suggestions are very helpful, but not that funny.

 

Wait, is that what this thread is for?
