    There is front rise and back rise. They will not be equal to each other. You can find conflicting instructions on how to measure, so when I give a rise measurement I specify how it is measured.

    Outseam - inseam, I don't think so. Consider that the actual rise has to account for the curvature used in the construction of the pants while inseam and outseam are simple straight line measurements.

    I kind of have a free night tonight and don't have to do much tomorrow, so should I finally watch Eastern Promises, which has been sitting on my shelf for like a year now?

    I could try to do some other things, but I am feeling rather bleh tonight. How bad/good is this movie? RESPONSES within next 2 hours desired!

    I know, there was vigorous debate over the subject in some thread a while ago.

    Hi,

    I have a pair of pants that go to a nice DB suit, but the pants have become a little short for me. I could have a tailor take the cuffs off, but they would still be a little short. Is there anything else you think can be done to them? [​IMG]

    Also, on a different note; when buying an overcoat should I go one size above my suit jacket size?

    You can't create cloth. But could you take a photo of you wearing them to show us how bad they are? Lots of men wear their trousers way too long anyway, you may be closer than you think.

    And no, overcoats are cut to be worn over a jacket. Same numerical size as your jacket- if you have a 40 inch chest, you wear a 40 jacket and a 40 overcoat.

    Those are showing up around $80 on a Google search. You want them cheaper? :confused:

    I can't find them for that...not from a reliable source. I love the black and red ones - but around $220 for the retro version is pretty standard from what I can find.

    Can you tell me about lengthening jackets at the bottom. A member has told me this about a jacket he has for sale. I want to lengthen it from 29.25 to 30. Is this possible?

    Are you sure you don't want to introduce just a little more colour here? Like, maybe that striped tie with a pale blue or lavender square?

    i'm partial to the solid tie with the white square... if those are your only options.

    question: is it possible to get rubber soled shoes resoled? (specifically aldens)
