I was under the impression that it was AE, but if I got Aldens for $180 I can't complain icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Where would one find crockett and jones shoes for decent prices online? Also, because i highly doubt I can try them on in michigan, how does a 10.5e/11d match up in c&j shoes based upon my sizing in AEs? Thanks for any insight, new to the shoe game!

the last on these is nicer than most aldens you can find. imo, aldens are vastly overrated.

Any tailors reading this thread? I just bought an expensive casual shirt and the sleeves are too long by a couple of inches. The fabric is 100% cotton, but is really thick and feels almost like denim. Is this a simple fix for a tailor, or do I risk ruining the garment? would they cut it at the cuff or shoulder?

Pics of cuff and inside/outside of shoulder:

You can shorten it from the cuff end relatively easily, it is a simply alteration if you don't move the placket. Shortening by a large amount may shorten the sleeve placket too much so you might then want to move the whole placket up. This is a bit more complicated than just moving the cuff up, but isn't too hard. It does require reconstructing the placket.

Shortening from the shoulder is not really recommended for shirts; for a start the taper of the sleeve means that, after shortening, the sleeve head will likely end up smaller than the arm-scye you're trying to attach if to. You would then need to also bring in the chest of the shirt in an attempt to make the scye smaller. Adjusting from the shoulders also means flat-felling the arm/body seam, as well as opening and reflat-felling at least part of the side/under-arm seam, which can be quite tricky work.

Just in case this was a serious question, and if I am understanding you correctly, yes, a canvased jacket is the norm. You can opt for a 1/2 canvas for a lightweight/summer type jacket.

Do you just want frames? If so, simply remove the lenses. Or are you wanting clear glass with no prescription? If so, why?

Thanks much. Looks like I will have him reconstruct the placket. Anything I should know going in? I'll be going to a new tailor in a new country so I'm a little nervous.
