"Slim fit we allow 2 to 2.5 inches of loosening depending on the measurements you give"

So, that being said, would you give exact measurements or subtract about 2'' from actual to allow for "loosening"? For example if the actual sleeve length is 35, would you give them 35 or 33?

I asked for them to clarify, awaiting response. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

Thanks

If you already have shirts that have good fitting elements it is probably a better idea to use those for shirt measurements. Especially things like sleeve length should be easily determinable that way. I used this method for my first MTM shirt and worked out very well.

Yes this may be better, though it doesn't sound like what they're asking for. But either way make sure you're on the same page as the maker. If you give them measurements from an existing jacket, but they think you're giving them body measurements, disaster will ensue.

In any case you definately shouldn't be deducting 2" from anything. Especially not sleeve length.

Any recommendation for button spacing on shirts if you open the top 2 buttons without a tie? How far down should the second and third button be?

Just wear a tie.

Why don't you just open the first button?

Or learn to see and sacrifice a thrifted shirt to figurerout what you like.

On this tweed jacket (image from another thread), is there a name for the detail around the edges? Is this a standard trim feature for tweed? The only thing I know to call this is "pick stitching" but I don't think that is what is exactly going on here. Any thoughts?

Here is a closer example of what I am talking about. The 1/4 inch stitch along the lapel, is this standard for tweed jackets or does it have a trade name one would request if having a jacket made?

Already strange in my eyes as it mixes formal (black) with informal (medallion and brogueing). Personally I would not buy.

I dropped off three shirts at the tailor yesterday.  The cost was $28 per shirt just to get the sleeves and torso slimmed.  Is that price high?  It seems high to me, but I don't have anything to compare.  Please let me know.  Thanks!
Sounds a little high to me.

Square in my opinion.

That's called a swelled edge. It's common on tweed jackets, but not standard so you should ask for it specifically.

I love gray flannel trousers. Love. It's an unhealthy obsession. However, it wears quickly in the crotch. I found this article yesterday:

http://putthison.com/post/23674835650/worsted-vs-woolen-flannels-i-love-wool-flannel

Can anybody give clearer instructions on how to find worsted flannel? I would love to try a pair.

Howard Yount flannels are worsted.

Best deal in a wool overcoat, single breasted for my Dad for Christmas under $1000? Something charcoal, simple and warm to be worn to work.

Luxire?

Should leather gloves coordinate with your shoes? Ex: Wearing charcoal overcoat and black shoes. Would brown leather gloves be too out of place?
