Can shoulder side pleats on back of a shirt be removed by a tailor?
post #31922 of 33197

Hi guys, I've two questions regarding derbies. First, I'm looking for a derby to wear during the winter, but the weather will be terrible and I'd either need to add a topy to a leather sole or get something that comes rubber soles. I was looking at these lug sole derbies, but was wondering if they look strange, since lug soles are quite thick. I would be wearing these with casual wear most of the time; trousers, overcoats, knits, etc.

 

 

Second, what is the context of derbies with different colored welts? For example:

I've had pleats from the back of a shirt removed before. Don't remember if it was box or side pleats.

Personally I probably wouldn't do lug soles. Lighter/different colored welts are more casual, because of the disruption in uniformity.

Tell Jasper what he should visit in Paris.  Our coverage will involve "CM" as well as "SWD".  Me personally, I am interested in some gantiers.  Any recommendations for us?

 

Cheers,  Fok.

There is something funky going on with the front of this jacket? Is it a 3-roll-2 button jacket that is buttoned all the way up?

I thought I was fluent in jedi, but that flew straight over my head.

Is this guy's jacket too short, short or just about right?

post #31931 of 33197
About right for the more contemporary set.

Looks like a three button. I don't think it's buttoned at all.

It's a matter of preference, despite everything you read on here and elsewhere, there is no right length, within reason. I have "party" suits with shorter jacket compared to my "conservative" suits.

Factors such as age, height, and build will dictate the "right" length for you.

Any shorter would be too short. I'd say anything between that length and an inch or two longer would fall within the range of just right.

Hi all,

 

So I took my jackets into a tailor to get their sleeves adjusted. I told her that I wanted to have about 1/4" of the shirt cuff showing. When she returned the jackets to me, to my dismay, you could only begin to see the shirt cuffs show if I had my arms straight to my side, not relaxed. I was about to take them back to her to see if she could shorten them a bit more but then noticed that later in the day, my shirt cuffs had begun to show more. I soon realized that this was probably because creases had developed in the elbow region of my jacket from my naturally bending them, enough to actually pull up the sleeve a little bit and thus show more of the shirt cuff.

 

My question is this: Do you guys notice something similar? And if so, do you guys usually take the creases into account when calculating how much shirt cuff should show?
