Knits are not generally easily altered because unlike woven cloths, they cannot simply be cut and restitched to form a new seam. You might be able to find some kind of weaver or reweaver who is able to properly alter knits, but the cost for something such as changing the neck shape is likely to be pretty high.

Question about the fit of slim fit chino cotton trousers.

Pockets should lie flat when standing straight, correct Is a slight amount of "bowing" of the pockets acceptable while walking?

If you're talking about odd shape or mismatched color from fading resulting from this, then there is a problem.

Ignoring all else. How is the fit on this sport coat? It's not mine, I'm just using it for sizing purposes. It is a 40L. Other than hitting the gym, do I have any other options? I'm 6'4" btw.

Start by unbuttoning the bottom button on the jacket. It looks like you could go down a size. Is it a vintage find or is it new?

Anyone know where I could get some Allen Edmonds Moras? I found a nice pair in a vintage store but they were a size too large. I would love to find them in size 11. The shoe was discontinued so its harder to come across now but I really like the style.

Pockets lie perfectly straight while standing. Slighty bow out while walking. ok?

Well its vintage. Its an old Levi, made in USA.

Sizing down? Its a 40L, they only way I could size down is with a 38XL, which is nearly impossible to find.

Fit is really bad, horrible even. I am glad it is not yours. You probably need a 38L or 36L (possibly XL, assuming the guy you're borrowing this from didn't have the sleeves shortened). It is way too big in the chest and shoulders. You look like you have square shoulders - keep that in mind as you look for something that doesn't make them look so square.

That jacket looks really old btw, and the gorge and buttons are placed weirdly. Something new will probably not look like this, so you may need to make some adjustments to the advice you're given.

You can find 38L's. You'd just need to lengthen the sleeves. If you bought it new that would probably be free. You cannot wear this jacket and look respectable to normal people, let alone internet clothing geeks/losers.

Then I would suggest you ditch this crappy jacket and find something better. You are better off wearing no jacket at all.

Do you think this suit is worth 200? Most pre-owned Hickey Freeman suits I've seen are around $50-100. Any thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated! http://cgi.ebay.com/1295-Hickey-Free...#ht_4729wt_911

Question regarding the rise on suit pants....what would constitute standard rise?
is 11.75" considered normal or high?

Just pulled the trigger on this piece:



What can I wear with it? It's a Ralph Lauren from the '70s. Any thoughts on the potential fit?

Any idea on yoox pant sizing? Looking to buy these:

http://www.yoox.com/item.asp?sec=1&Y...A&sts=sr_men80

I am a size 31, so which one should I get? The 36 or the 38?

Also, what is your opinion on the fit of those pants? Do you think they will be baggy or slim? I'm unsure if I should pull the trigger on those...

Thanks!


To the poster above: Most likely, the fit will not be slim. I found that RL shoulders are quite wide for their tagged size. Be prepared to spend another 50-100 dollars on a tailor if you want it to look good.
