    Most important handwork on a shirt

    Ideally, all my dress shirts would be fully handmade, except for seams that absolutely need the strength of machine sewing. I honestly don't discern a comfort difference between hand finished sleeves and machine attached, and a hand attached collar feels (to me) just like a machine attached...

    Should I find a new alterations tailor and cleaner?

    I’m wondering if my tailor is using a proper invisible stitch to hem suit trousers. They messed up on a few other alterations, so my patience is dwindling. Images 1,2,3 are of the hem stitching (2&3 are the same garment). I’m also wondering if they’re ruining my suits with their dry cleaning. I...

    Huddersfield cloth is the best cloth

    Huddersfield cloth is the best cloth IMO. Whilst I'm not detracting from fine cloth from other regions, I think Huddersfield cloth is more soft to touch, with a good mix of durability and flexibility to the weave. It's no wonder it is world reknowned. What's your take on it?

Would it be possible to let it out a bit? I know that's possible, but since it's already been taken in earlier. Thanks...
