So my RL flat front flannels arrived, and they are great. Slim cut, taper at the cuff. Hip, hip, hip... only problem is, my hips. Taylor is charging me $42 to let out the crotch, hem and waist. I had no idea that crotch alteration even existed. I usually think waist and hem when I bring in pants. However, my tailor just showed me that quality pants in fact leave extra fabric at the crotch as well for adjustments. I just went to my closet: by god all the pants have adjustable crotch seams.... who knew? So, for my big restaurant meeting, in keeping with the rec's here, I am going with the Tod's chelsea boots purchased at the Barney's sale for 1/2 off, the RL pants 1/2 off on polo.com, and a slim fit black cashmere v-neck sweater over a white t-shirt, with a black belt. The t-shirt rather than a white dress shirt someone here said has more edge. Commnets on that would be most helpful. My girl thinks a funky collared shirt such as Paul Smith or the like would be more appropriate for a downtown dinner.
