Wanted to spread my good news of the day, the girlfriend and I got approved for our new apartment in NYC; sign the lease Thursday! Could not be more excited. Also, happens to be in between two thrift stores, well within a few short blocks...I can neither confirm nor deny whether that was purposeful :D

You can always have a tailor open up the vents for you!

I bet that thing is super lightweight huh?  I tried plenty on when visiting the Etro store in the past.  All their jackets were so light, and unstructured, it was a pleasure to wear.

If there were vents in the first place, and they were sewn shut, yeah, you can probably have them reopened. If there were never any vents to begin with, though, probably not. They require a significant amount of overlap and there usually isn't enough seam allowance to construct it.

Personally, I like ventless. I know many do not and it does not sell well, but I tend to prefer ventless suits. Maybe my view is tainted because I normally can get ventless suits for less.

Made it onto PTO roundup for a drakes tie. THANKS PTO! I was wondering why I had 50+ watchers after 2 days.

The good thing about bespoke items is that they often leave a good deal of fabric for future alterations. Hopefully this is the case here as well.

Hmm, that does make sense.  I guess I was referring to my own personal experiences, which never caused any problems.  The work done on one item was a bespoke made (not for me) jacket, in which we opened side vents.  The other Jacket was actually closing a center vent on a tuxedo jacket, which looked great after the work was completed.

Can anyone help with this watch? It's heavy running very smoothly, and has some real wear. It will be $150 tomorrow on sale.

Interesting morning.  A couple nice finds and a question for you seasoned pros. 

 

EZ shoes in excellent condition

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

These Bettanin & Venturi shoes need some TLC to restore.  They are well made and the prices look good on Ebay.  But I am unfamiliar with this brand if anyone has feedback I would be grateful.
