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?

 

 

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

Does anyone happen to know who is currently making shoes for Battistoni (in Barneys)? Italian origin...

Much thanks for any help.

Where is a good source for cool buttons to put on a navy blazer? I don't want to keep the crested dull silver buttons on a jacket I had made recently that is nearing completion, from a special deal at a tailor shop that didn't give me many options.

would like to find silvery dark smoked pearl buttons, or something others might recommend?

Anyone know a decent tailor in NYC? I need to take in the sleeves of a jacket from the shoulders...

Alterations Master Tailor Shop. 2 West 46th Street, right next to Fifth Ave. I can't speak highly enough of them.

Good tailor around Berkeley (or anywhere close to BART stations in the Bay area)? Need some pants hemmed; would need to rely on tailor's eye as I have no experience.

Tender Buttons in New York is a great place. Not sure about shipping and such though.

Why is it that sometimes there's no visible row of stitching on the bottom of shoes that are goodyear welted?

 

post #23651 of 31206

It's called "channeled stitching".  A layer around the edge of the sole is peeled back, a little channel carved into the layer underneath, and the stitching is done inside the channel.  Then the layer that was peeled back - about half an inch all the way around, is glued back down over the stitching which lies flush inside the channel.

 

Eventually, the layer of leather over the channel usually starts coming away or wears away, and then you'll start to see where the stitching is!

Im looking to purchase a blazer or sport coat, and I am leaning towards the Gant Rugger R. Canvas blazer in navy: http://media3.gant.com/media/catalog/product/cache/4/image/540x540/0dc2d03fe217f8c83829496872af24a0/7/6/76862_402_1.jpg

 

Does anyone have any experience with this blazer, or could anybody recommend something better? Im a student so I dont have the savings to go bespoke, but I need a blazer/sport coat for recruiting events, etc.

Don't get that one. Get a traditional wool blazer, available anywhere. What you have is an unstructured canvas blazer, and those are meant for more casual settings. If you're using this for stuff like recruiting events, you want something more formal than that. A more classic wool version would even work for an interview.

Brooks Brothers would be a good option, and about the same price as the Gant if you get it on sale.
