Sometimes you can't if the seamstress cut too much off.

The trousers in your first picture almost look like they are too short. I'm not sure if they even reach the shoe.

Several possible solutions.

1. Wear OTC socks.

2. Don't sit down.

3. Color the skin on your lower legs with Magic Marker, so that it looks like your socks are OTC. (If anyone calls you on this one, claim you did it as an homage to practice of employing paint-on hosiery during WWII. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/paint-on-hosiery-during-the-war-years-29864389/?no-ist

They're all good solutions, but if you've hairy legs, don't forget to give them a close shave before trying #3, above.

Don't forget sock garters as a solution! Hold your socks up and the ladies love them.

Are you kidding? Those things are disgusting. Just wear OTC socks.

On the subject of OTC socks, I had been wearing these Gold Toe OTC wool blend socks until I started noticing that my upper calves would be really, really itchy after taking the socks off.

Is that due to the socks cutting off circulation? Something else?

Yes. He's kidding.

More traditionally referred to simply as a 10C, the narrower heal being implied by the narrower toe box. If you are selling them just call them a 10C. That will do for the majority of your buyers.

If I find a suit I like but it's a 40L instead of a 40R, can I simply take it to a tailor and have the jacket shortened thus turning it from a "Long" to a "Regular" jacket? Also same question but from a 40R to a 40S?

In theory yes, but in practice it will be prohibitively expensive and most likely still won't look right. Learn from our mistakes and don't do it.

A wise man once said, "Sales are fool's gold."

 

 

 

Heeding those words has saved me lots of grief in the long term.
