I know this is a total noob question but I am new to all of this. I have a pair of chinos that need to be lengthened about an inch. Incidentally, there is about a one-inch hem inside the trouser legs. Could I simply rip out the seam and roll down the hem? Would the ends of the trouser legs look "unfinished" as a result? Again I know this is a noobie question but I'm just now maturing past my "Jeans and T-shirts" phase so this is new to me. Thanks!

Yes, that would look unfinished. You usually need about an inch of extra fabric for the hem. Can sometimes get away with less, but not much.

Ok, as a fashion inept guy I need some advice on what to wear under an a dark blue v-neck sweater.  Would a black dress shirt look too dark, or should I stick to white?

black would be awful. Light blue or white.

+1. Never wear a black shirt. Light blue or white.

Are Jos A Bank Cashmere sweaters for $88 worth it or is the quality not worth owning?  

 

BB has similar cashmere sweaters for about $275 now.  I would wear it maybe once every 2 weeks for less than half the year.  I would like to spend as little as possible but still get a decent sweater.  If I went the JAB route, I would buy 2, but with BB I would only buy 1.

The JAB is certainly garbage. The BB is probably less so, but I still wouldn't buy it, especially at that price. Put This On did a couple of articles recently about cashmere; you might want to check them out.

i picked up a linen suit in palermo a long while back, but i was thinking of having it dyed blue or perhaps navy (right now it's an off-white almost creme color) . any advice or recommendations of where i may have it done if it's not too easy to do at home ?

You're right, there are some good articles on Put This On.  Very informative.  Thanks.

I suggest buying a navy linen suit.

If you're OK with spending $275 for a cashmere sweater, consider William Lockie, which sells some genuinely nice ones for $400. You can buy them through Heather Wallace. These are arguably the best in the world.

That said, I think it's OK to buy lower quality items if you're not going to wear them that often. "Cheap" cashmere can be an especially bad buy but ... if you're going to wear something less than a dozen times a year, it's hard to argue that a $275 sweater is going to fall apart on you.

I'm about to purchase some white shirts 'Bagutta' with cut-away-collar from Kamiceria.it.

 

I've never worn these before and would like some feedback on:

 

- Quality (relative to other brands).

- Fit (rtob.)

- Price (rtob.)

- Kamiceria (relative to other suppliers).

 

Thank you.

Should I size down .5 or 1 from US to UK size on the Loake 026 last. Specifically looking at the Badminton 2.

why, is the cost of dyeing nearly that of a new a suit ? i like the idea of a DIY or distorting existing works, but not sure how feasible it is

I'm about to purchase some 'Bagutta' slim-fit shirts from Kamiceria.it.

 

I would very much appreciate if those who have experience with the lable can give feedback on:

 

- Quality (Relative to other brands).

- Fit (Rtob). How is the structure? True to size or odd?

- Price (Rtob).

- Kamiceria as a supplier. What are their marketing-strategy?

 

Thank you.
