post #25396 of 33006

I recently won an ebay lot of 4 pairs of pants that turned out to be pleated. I actually got my money back (so many stains!), but two of the trousers I think are worth having cleaned and altered.


I don't own any pairs of well fitting pleated trousers, these are a pair of burberrys and RL which look amazing and I'd like them to be the two pairs of pleated pants I keep. They're a little big in the waist so I'm thinking of having them slimmed, but I'm wondering where on my waist should I wear these, i.e. natural or lower, and how they should break.

 

Any pictures of pleats done correctly would be awesome!

 

Also, another quickie:

I thrifted a few smaller scarves today thinking that I could use them as pocket squares. How big is too big? I'm trying to figure out where the boundary is for a PS making a pocket poof a bit.

 


Thanks!
RTC.

Is there any style rule against the lower edge of a sunglasses frame touching your cheeks or it depends?  Thanks!

hey guys, picked up a pair of shoes over the weekend that is just a bit too big - maybe less than 1/2 size. is there anything out there that can make these fit a bit snugger OTHER than thicker socks?

You could get a heel liner of some kind.

Depending on the kind of shoe, there are also pads you can put under the tongue of the shoe to hold them back in place if your issue is forward slide. I'm going to try this with a pair of Frye boots shortly.

Not to my knowledge, but if it's more than brushing your cheeks, probably will look like crap. Also would drive me absolutely mental all day.

Thanks. These are the shoes in question... Still looking for more info on them. Barrie made in Italy.

I would probably try the tongue pads on those.
Well it depends where your foot is having issues. If You're sliding forward then use the tongue pad. But if you have heel slippage then use the heel like.

If I have a pair of trousers hemmed and want to resell it in the future, how much extra material could be kept in case the future owner wants to lengthen it?

post #25406 of 33006
Depends on how long the future buyer's legs are.

I don't understand why you'd put that much effort into a pair of pants that you want to resell.

Regardless, I would ask the tailor...

Whichever fits better, seeing that they're the same probably the double vented one. That one has the wool/cashmere blend right?

^^ you don't understand why someone might leave enough material on a pair of trousers they plan to wear now, with the idea that they might be able to sell them to more people in the future if they have additional fabric under the hem? :confused:
