Would guys call this quarter or half break?

Personally I'd call that a full break.

I thought full was is when the back of the pants leg is touching the leather heel. Halfway up the shoe upper is half break, no?

Also thinking my high instep and derby front shoes are having an effect on the break in the front. I think I may need to compensate by getting the pants hemmed on a slant.

Yeah, looking at it again, youre right, its not quite a full break. It's definitely on the full side of medium though, particularly in the front.

I wasn't aware the back of the pants mattered in the depth of break. You learn something new every day.

Hi guys, I was hoping that somebody could recommend a good and relatively inexpensive place for alterations in downtown Manhattan; I just got a dondup topcoat in the mail today and noticed that the sleeves were a tad bit too long. I understand that "inexpensive" and "NYC" generally don't mix all that well, but I'm currently a student which means that I'm perpetually short on cash.

 

Thanks in advance.

Can anyone tell me why collar gap is so apparent on this jacket? What can be done to make the collar hug the shirt collar tighter?

It's apparent because the jacket does not come remotely close to fitting you. Return it. Yesterday.

Seriously, it looks like the chest and shoulders of that jacket are 4 sizes larger than the rest of it.

This has been asked before (hoping for different answers), but can anyone recommend a good tailor in Savannah, GA? I've tried 2 with someone mixed results.

I've been told Attila in Richmond, VA can work magic.

If it crumples in the back, I call it "way too long".

Looks like you need alterations to bring in chest and possibly neck size.

post #23640 of 33081
^both of which are not possible to. Return it.
