    Yes, we all do. The answer is yes. If you know basic sewing, you could repair it also, as this is just a few loose stitches. It happens.

    Turn inside-out. Straight stitch down the seam, something heavier if you're worried about wear. 5 minutes max.

    My duck rivets chinos have had no such issues, but I did have this happen to my pair of sanded canvas Walts. The fix was so simple, my tailor did it for free.

    Ah, got it. Thanks!
    Still not used to buying 'expensive' clothes so stuff like that causes me to think that the world is coming to an end. Phew! Of course, if that
    were a pair of Margiela, Givenchy, or Jil Sander pants, I probably would've had a heart attack.

    Thanks again.

    I was just talking to my wife, EVERYTHING is more expensive nowadays. Even in the past 10 years it seems that everything has been adversely impacted by what I can only assume is the rise of gas prices. Food, clothing, materials, hell ANYTHING that needs fuel to be transported. Add to that the fact that people are making less, and you have a recession.

    Oh my lord, I had nearly the exact outfit, except that my go to suit was an Emporio Armani number with rounded peak lapels (it's actually an old style lapel that I see here and there, I forget the exact name), and my go to shirts were Dirk Schonberger tuxedo shirts with cut outs and shredded bibs.) Oh, and my sunglasses were custom titanium frames with blue lenses. Booyah!

    I remember senior year (Clinton boom, baby): $0.93 for HIGH TEST/Gallon. In New York (40 miles north of City, so, close to NYC prices).

    Crazy thing is, we use less and produce more than almost ever. Market Capitalism ft(1%)w!

    Part of it is also a mix of taxes and increased use. The U.S. may use less then ever before but when you add in China and India its no surprise.

    Mike and co. stopped offering 28's in their standard Walt runs some time ago. Fabric willing, you can pm Mike or Matt to special order a size 28. I do this from time to time, takes 4-6 weeks, sometimes sooner.

    The gray merino side tabs are excellent. EXCELLENT.

    Just recieved my first pair of Carmina's and they are on the Forest last. These were the Faulkner Shortwing Natural Chromexcel from Epaulet. They look fantastic, and appear to be constructed very nicely.

    It appears as these are just right in my typical shoe size. So I was wondering is the Forest last Carmina's widest last?

    Sorry sometimes the financial analyst side of me just springs out and I can't control it. You can imagine what a hit it is at parties.
