You can't remove them, just as you cannot add them to a finished shoe.

The use of medallions or brogue holes is a creative decision by the designer/maker. They are holes punched into the leather (at a very early stage of production) and there is no way to remove them once they are punched.

If you don't like that form of decoration (fair enough), you must find a shoe design, that doesn't feature them.

Thanks for ur answer.
actually,i was invited to a black tie theme party but the most dressier shoe i had was a black whole cut but with medallions on toe,so this lead to another question:

is a black whole cut shoe with medallions on toe Appropriate for black tie?

Not entirely, but I doubt it will be the worst thing on display either!

Should I return it or keep it. I love the color and I'm a newbie at folding ties yet it created the best dimple I've ever had (this is my first 'good' tie). I feel like I should keep it because finding a quality magenta pin dot tie is pretty hard. I mean I see purple pin dot and stuff or maybe a light pink but not this.

Please ignore that I didn't cover the top button of my shirt with my tie. Rookie mistake. Keep the tie or not?

I think it works very well.

Looking for some advice.  I plan on order a pair of MTM gray flannel trousers and taking measurements from my "best pair of fitting pants" which unfortunately are the ones shown below.  Any critique on the measurements?  More in the hip? less in the rise? should I take in the legs?  Thanks in advance!

I would not suggest ordering custom trousers based on those. Why do you want to? I mean, they don't fit, but there are so many options out there that you'll be able to find a pair that does fit to take measurements from.

It seems he is essentially asking how could the fit of the pictures pants be improved. Ideally he'd like the answer to that question in how to adjust the measurements.

 

I wish I could offer more advice than the following: even going for a relaxed fit, there is too much material in the seat and all the way down the leg. This is prob why YRR92 was suggesting you find a better fitting OTR pair, to use as your guide. While you may not find perfection OTR, you can probably do better than these. See putthison.com's post a couple days ago with a pic of a very nice fitting pair of pants.  When buying OTR, prioritize your thighs and seat over the waist (the waist can be adjusted relatively easily.  So, if you have large thighs you may end up finding a 36 waist pair of pants fits better even though your actual pants waist size is 33.

Classic shoe recommendation anyone ?

There are plenty of classic designs, but unfortunately, it's impossible to recommend one without any other data. I can tell you that black captoe oxfords, dark brown calfskin half-brogue balmorals, and burgundy shell cordovan longwing bluchers are classics -- but I can't in good conscience recommend any of them to you on that alone.

 

Cheuk:

 

Yes, but unfortunately, as a photographer, I don't trust shots like that to be accurate enough that an experienced tailor could say "half an inch here, an inch there" and have it come out perfectly.

Cross post from the SuitSupply thread where I asked about alternative cuts. Quick question: Suit fitting "slim & ok" or "too tight"? Slight concern about the area around the lats.

Obviously vents still closed, pants unhemmed but folded up.

What color chino do you think would be more versatile?

 

"Mid-gray" on the left? or "brown-gray" on the right?

 

 

 

 

post #27703 of 33197

Szeph: too tight for you in the upper waist.  Shoulders are nice.  I'd try a different cut rather than a different size of the same.

 

bklyndoc: neither.  Grey is a great colour for flannels, worsteds or pretty much any kind of wool.  Lighter greys work great in linen too.  But in heavy cotton twills/chinos/jeans, they just start to look like washed out black.  Don't buy grey chinos.  But khaki, stone, beige, brown, rust, mustard, sage green, but not grey.  If you want grey trousers, then think of it as a tone that's too strongly associated with suits and formality to work in that cloth: go up a notch in formality to wool, and if you really must have grey cotton, then a soft brushed moleskin might pass better. But really, wool.  And if you're going to ignore me entirely, then "brown/grey", on the right.  :)

xposting from the tailor thread, 

 

 

 

 

 

JCrew Ludlow - This is probably one of the better fitting suits off the rack that I've bought, but the jacket still looked a little boxy to me.  I have an 8-9" drop so I took it in to have the waist taken in just slightly.  I also had the sleeves and the pants shortened just a little bit.  Now I've been sitting here looking at the pictures and I can't help but fear it'll come back looking too small.  What do you think?  based on these before pictures, were these alterations warranted?  I can always call my tailor and cancel.  Anything else that sticks out to you guys?
