    corduroy jacket for fall

    I work at JAB- this year's cord is better than last year's. It will be a good jacket for 2-3 years if you wear it daily.

    Creases on new shoes

    When I got my Aldens, my friend who sold them to me broke the vamp. Ie He took two wooden dowels and put them on either side of where the crease should be, and had me flex. Voila- perfect creases.

    How to avoid creasing one's shirt while sitting?

    Wrinkle free shirts do the trick, though taboo here and at AA, no wrinkles showing.

    Shirt construction question- top button rollover

    I think he's speaking about the fabric above the top button hole, is rolling a bit, causing his tie to sit lower on the collar. I have the same problem, I correct it with a straight pin.

    Adding more waist suppression to a jacket

    Depending what you need done, the typicall term is side seams in, or front panel. Side seams involves taking in material on both sides of the seam, front panel only is just taking in on the front. It shouldnt cost you more than $20 to do either of the options.

    Can size of vents be increased???

    typically, a vent overlays some fabric, so you'd have to find a tailor who can create a new overlay.

    Altering pleated to flat front pants

    Well, if it is a nice suit, ie really nice OTR (an oxymoron of course), most of them come with pleats, and some people just dont work well with pleats.

    Altering pleated to flat front pants

    It shouldnt, because the pants are recut, as if a new patterm were made.Takes out from either side of the fly, thus the pockets rest where they should.

    Altering pleated to flat front pants

    We offer this service at work, we charge 55 or 65 depending where the trousers are purchased. it basically involves removing the waistband, and recutting the trouser through the wiast and seat. It is time intensive, and I would only leave such work to a well skilled tailor.

    New Suit, Please Comment

    You may ask them to lower the collar a bit, you've a tad of a roll there. Also, there is some volume in the back around the center seem, did they suggest to take it in a smidge?
