I understand.  Indian made Loakes start at about $150, and I have one pair myself that I like very much.  Pediwear has a good selection, and often throw in extras like free trees or a tie.  Herring have some too, and also some of their own lines that are made by Loake's Indian factory for the same price.

Just took two sport coats to the tailor to get some waist supression. The tailor marked chalk on the "rear/side" seams, that run along the sides of the back that run up from the double vents. \

 

Is that right? Or should I call them and tel them to change it? I thought waist supression was supposed to be taken in on the sides, not the rear/side area.. (Middle picture, that seam).

Wondering how many seams your jackets have...

In suit pants, they put a piece of tape in the pockets.  It's like burlap or like the material the bags that onions come in the grocery store are made of.  Does anyone know what this is for?

I don't remember, asked the KW crew (since it's a KW sport coat). I also posted some pics in the tailor fit/feedback.. here they are for this thread too. You probably still need to know how many seams.

This is my jacket. Asked for .5" but he marked more like 1.25"

 

This is another dudes jacket, just marked it to show the seams he marked.

Right,  and doesn't the only other seam go right through your pocket?  Seems to me he's marked the right one for a small adjustment.

 

Doesn't look like it needs to be any smaller to me, but I'll defer to the tailors.  I'd also suggest you always "model" with a shirt, tie and proper trousers, to get a better idea how it's fitting.  Unless you normally wear it with your car-repair attire. ;)

You're probably right. I just wasn't sure if they would adjust the pocket one or not.

 

I feel like calling them and telling them to just do .5" total or something. They said "We can't do much" then the old foreign fellow marked quite a bit more. He didn't even put pins in, just pinched and marked. I would have asked for pins but we got in an argument about keeping the pick stitching or not. He said, "Really? It's a pain in the ass, dude.." and we were discussing it for a while that I just took the jacket off without thinking to ask them to put the pins in.

 

edit:Just called and asked them to change it to .25" on each seam, they complied. Cool cool.

multi purple shirt (vertical striped) and charcoal grey jacket matches with what handkerchief?

I have a schoolmate's wedding to go to on Saturday and I have no idea what kind of handkerchief with go well with my charcoal jacket and purple shirt.

Any suggestions?
post #22179 of 29141

The answer to all such questions.

 

Crisp. White. Linen.

 

Also, if your jacket is a solid plain charcoal, then you probably want to be wearing the matching trousers.

I bought a dry clean only item but there's a strong pesticide smell in the cloth. Is there any other way to clean it without sending it to the dry cleanings? I'm hesitant to send them over to the dry cleaner since it's gonna deteriorate the quality of the garment.

It's just that strong odor that you would smell if you were to visit a garment factory. I don't know if it's "real pesticide", but i'll been airing it out for 2-weeks without no avail.

Excessive dry cleaning can be detrimental to a garment. It's good that people have begun to understand this.

But when this understanding gives rise to an unreasonable and exaggerated fear of subjecting clothing to any dry cleaning, it stops being a good thing. Infrequent dry cleaning, particularly when done properly, by a quality cleaner, is not some horrible thing which must be avoided at all costs. To adopt such an attitude is as bad, in its own way, as being blind to the consequences of unnecessary dry cleaning.

You have a garment which is in need of cleaning. It is dry clean only. So have it dry cleaned.

(Excessive consumption of cake is detrimental to my health. This does not mean that if I attend one or two birthday parties a year, and have a few bites of birthday cake, that I am doomed to suffer obesity and diabetes. Not all behaviors which are ill advised when done to excess are necessarily cause for much concern when engaged in in great moderation.)

Hi guys!

 

So, I just received my sports coat from Suit Supply, which also is my first sport coat ever. I'm just 18, so I have a long way to go.

I know that I need to shorten my sleeves, but not how much.  I am also not sure about the length, is the jacket too long? Is there anything else I need to fix, or should I return the jacket because it's too big?

 

Thanks!

I found this brooks brothers v-nevk pull-over the other day.  Does anyone know if these designer samples are worth anything?  Thanks for looking. Cheers.
