In my experience, a nominal $10 - 15 charge. Not an expensive alteration.

I have this sweater I was wondering what would go with it? I have a pair of dark jeans that go with it. Would Khaki go with this and what type of shirt, beside a white shirt. Thanks.

ABout how much does it cost for a tailor to slim pant from the knee down?

post #17345 of 28687

I'm looking to tailor a cotton khaki sport coat, thing is I'm unsure of having it lined or unlined. I live in Singapore and the weather is rather unforgiving at times so that might suggest leaving it unlined. However, I've also read that having a lining helps with the drape of the jacket. So which would be a better option?

 

Another thing is that I'm looking to purchase a pair of tassel loafers. The likes of Alden, C&J etc. are well out of my range, so what are some viable options? Would brands like Loake or Meermin serve as good beaters?

I like that cardigan.  Where's it from?  Wool or cotton?

 

I think khakis would work if they are a shade or two darker than the sweater.  Olive or brown chinos/cords would probably look nice, too.  I think any shirt you would wear with khakis would work.  Grey or ecru OCBDs would be the safest bets, but a blue or pink solid or gingham would look good.

Last two I've seen have been $27 and $30.

I'd recommend a shepherd's check tie with your dark navy suit, such as this one. It's a classic for weddings.

 

Nothing too loud with the socks, a textured medium/dark grey would serve you well.

I am planning on buying my first suit. It will be corduroy. Please no lectures on how that's a bad choice for a first suit.  I have an appointment to see a tailor next week to replicate a Zegna suit that I love but can not afford. This tailor told me over the phone that he can replicate the suit no problem. It will be a MTM not a Bespoke. Is the tailor blowing smoke up my ass? I really want this thing to have the same beautiful cut that I see in the photograph. Plus it is double breasted. Double breasted suits can easily look awful and old fashioned. Here is a link/pic:

 

go to the second row second pic from left--purple cord suit

and go third row second pic from left brown cord suit

Gap., its cotton. Thanks a lot for the input, greatly appreciated. What does OCBD stand for?

I'm looking at replacing a couple of belts, need recs. From what I've gathered there's essentially belts that are wood shavings glued together. Let's avoid those. Also, looking to get something artisian. Thanks.
