I've been told Attila in Richmond, VA can work magic.

If it crumples in the back, I call it "way too long".

Can anyone tell me why collar gap is so apparent on this jacket? What can be done to make the collar hug the shirt collar tighter?

 

 

Looks like you need alterations to bring in chest and possibly neck size.

Does anyone happen to know who is currently making shoes for Battistoni (in Barneys)? Italian origin...

Much thanks for any help.

Where is a good source for cool buttons to put on a navy blazer? I don't want to keep the crested dull silver buttons on a jacket I had made recently that is nearing completion, from a special deal at a tailor shop that didn't give me many options.

would like to find silvery dark smoked pearl buttons, or something others might recommend?

Alterations Master Tailor Shop. 2 West 46th Street, right next to Fifth Ave. I can't speak highly enough of them.

Good tailor around Berkeley (or anywhere close to BART stations in the Bay area)? Need some pants hemmed; would need to rely on tailor's eye as I have no experience.

Tender Buttons in New York is a great place. Not sure about shipping and such though.

Why is it that sometimes there's no visible row of stitching on the bottom of shoes that are goodyear welted?

 

post #23654 of 28723

It's called "channeled stitching".  A layer around the edge of the sole is peeled back, a little channel carved into the layer underneath, and the stitching is done inside the channel.  Then the layer that was peeled back - about half an inch all the way around, is glued back down over the stitching which lies flush inside the channel.

 

Eventually, the layer of leather over the channel usually starts coming away or wears away, and then you'll start to see where the stitching is!

Can someone please remind me of the name of the amazing accessory shop in Paris? They have combs, razors, brushes, lighters, cigar cutters etc. Thanks!
