    Can you restate this question, with a bit more clarity? Your question, in it's current incarnation, is akin to asking a stranger on the street "Where do you find good quality cars for a reasonable price?"

    Not enough information to answer your question competently :plain:

    I'm playing around with the idea of trying my hand at suit making (just for fun) and I'd like to know where I can buy horsehair canvas. Any suggestions?

    Was reading an article that mentioned "hand-sewn Borrelli shirt"

    Wondering what part of the shirt is hand-sewn? Difficult to believe, imagine or understand that the whole shirt would be hand made without using a machine at all.

    Any ideas?

    Concerning the fit of pointy-toe shoes, it's normal to have like an inch or so of space in the toe-box, depending on how pointy the shoe is right?

    The shoulder panels, placket, buttonholes and shoulders are all hand sewn. The collar, labels, and buttons are attached by hand. [​IMG]

    I accidentally shortened the sleeves an inch too much on two of my UNIS button downs and am wondering if it'd be a good idea to have a tailor chop the sleeves and give me a mid bicep length on them. Has anyone ever done this successfully? Thoughts? I really like them and would like to continue to wear them.

    Thanks!

    I like Epaulet trousers, but I wear a 34 inseam regularly, and I would like to try cuffs on my next pants. Can anyone recommend brands with similar (not much fabric in the back) cuts, but longer inseams.

    Thank you Ich_Dien. Very helpful and informative.

    Though am still not able to put my thoughts together for imagining such a shirt, I have a feeling that it would be impressive.

    Can anyone recommend how to go about getting a leather jacket re-lined?

    I've spent months looking for a good replacement and haven't found any jackets I really like as much as the one I have. I like how it fits, the leather has held up very well, and the jacket is really warm, but the lining is worn out and one pocket has a hole in it from carrying my keys. I want to find a good tailor that works with leather jackets, but I don't know how to determine whether they actually do good work or they are just a hack that will take my money and ruin my jacket. Any tips on how to find and screen tailors for this type of work are greatly appreciated.

    M+O was an American Eagle offshoot that doesn't exist anymore.

    Cannot find it anywhere... If anyone knows where I could find that blazer or an identical one I would be forever grateful!

    I have a smaller wrist. What kind of watch should I look into?

    My 3 year old and 5 year old daughters are very happy with their Hello Kitty watches. The watches are white, but also have a walkie talkie function, so that may be an additional selling point for you.
