There's a shop near me that does $99 per shirt, but if I can get measurements from Modern Tailor right it might be worth going through them. The sub-$100 fabrics seem decent.

Say a jacket of mine is 21.25 inches in the chest, pit to pit. I need some more wearing easy. Ideally, it should be 21.5 to 21.75. Can the chest be let out at that area?

I know that the waist of a jacket can be let out, but I'm unsure about the chest area.

Member "a tailor" said on Ask Andy that there is usually material at the side seam under the armhole.

Still interested in hearing from people who've had this procedure done on a jacket by a good tailor.

What is a good suit to buy for less than, say $600? Just need it for 1-2 times a year for weddings, interviews etc...

Im about 6'2, 215# right now. Can get it tailored, of course. In Los Angeles.

Hello,
Long time reader and first time poster. I have found the information on these forums to be invaluable and has helped me make many good purchases. I have searched this site and the Internet for some sort of idea as to the answer of this question and have nothing. So I apologize if this has already been addressed.
I understand this sites feelings toward the quality and branding of Superdry. I am looking for shirts and jackets. I no longer wish to have so much branded apparel but I haven't found anything that comes close to the fit superdrys products provide me. Slim tailoring and long arms. Does anyone know of any other places I may looks for something similar? Preferably ones that wouldn't require heavy alteration. I have tried Brooks Brothers, J crew, nordstroms, basically I look everywhere. But arms are always too short and if I can size up to get the arms to fit then the body size is way too big. Any info anyone can provide would be helpful. Maybe I need to look to more English style designers. But I don't know where to start.

You can visit Benjamin at benjaminclothing.com or search his affiliated thread in this forum. Another option is you can buy from suitsupply.com.

Hope this help :)

not a clothing related question. but i bought a pair of jeans in the classifieds. emailed with the seller and paid through paypal invoice he sent me on sunday night. i've sent him a few emails since that night just asking him to confirm he got the payment and let me know when he might be able to get them out. haven't heard any response back from him. the transaction on paypal allows me to file a dispute, but wondering how long should i allow him to respond before filing it. i mean the emailing up to the payment was quick and prompt, and i know he's also got his email at his side all the time as his emailis were coming from his iphone. just wondering your thoughts.

Does he have any feedback? Has he logged on since Sunday night? Is he new member?

Way too early to panic unless other things are lining up in the wrong direction.

Any places that I can go in and try them on though? Nordstrom rack or one of those 3-day suit brokers or something?

Nope, the Benjamin suits are online only. Great suit for the money if you know your measurements well enough to order online.

he had a little bit of feedback on ebay. i guess i'll wait another day. guess i'm more annoyed than panicked. i mean how long does it take to send a response -"yeah. got the payment"

what do you guys think of wearing a knit tie to a daytime outdoor wedding?  i found a thread from 2008 that was about half and half on it, seeing if the consensus changed.  it'd be a navy tie with a navy suit.

 

thanks.

Assuming it's the sort of wedding for which a suit and tie would be appropriate, I see nothing inherently wrong with wearing a knit tie.

Of course, for some daytime outdoor weddings, anything more formal than shorts and a t-shirt would be a bit much. For others, tuxedos will be expected. (True, tuxedos shouldn't be worn in the daytime, but the reality of it is that many daytime weddings are black tie, and if that's what the invitation reads, I'll respect the bride's wishes.) But assuming it's a daytime outdoor wedding where a navy suit and a necktie would be appropriate, the fact that your choice of necktie is a silk knit should not be much of an issue.

A knit tie, by its nature, tends to be slightly less formal than some other types of neckwear. But one could certainly argue that (1) daytime, and (2) outdoor, are themselves more toward the less formal side of the spectrum than are some other types of weddings.

Moreover, you specify a navy knit tie. Assuming you mean solid navy, well, a solid navy tie is about as versatile as anything you can put around your neck. It's suitable for a huge variety of situations.

Ultimately though, you should not wear a knit tie to the wedding in question if you would be wondering "Am I appropriately dressed?... should I have worn another tie?..." Since a man rarely looks his best unless he's comfortable - psychologically, not just physically - with what he's wearing. If you'll have doubts about wearing your knit tie, don't wear it. Go out and buy yourself another tie, one with which you will feel comfortable. I mean this - if you're not sure about it, wear something else. It's a tie, after all. $15 from The Tie Bar will get you a perfectly adequate non-knit tie. If that'll leave you feeling confident that you're properly dressed for the occasion, it's $15 well spent.

If I have a 3/2.5 unstructured linen blazer, can I repress the lapel to change it into a 3/2?
