    Are my leather jacket sleeves too long?

    Hi all, I just bought this aviator style brown leather jacket from Danier which I absolutely love. It's my first leather jacket purchase ever. However, the past couple days I've been trying to figure out if my sleeves are too long or not. I've heard a lot of conflicting opinions and I'm looking...

    Tailoring in/around Brussels, Belgium

    Hello all! I'm in the market for a fully tailored suit. I'm happy to splash 500-1,000 EUR on something that I can enjoy for years (some shirts too?). Fully canvassed, elegant and properly made. I'm not in a rush and would like to do this properly. I'm living in Brussels at the moment and...

    Suggestions for OTR adjustments in MD/DC?

    I've started commuting from Frederick MD into DC recently, and it's clear that I need to update my wardrobe! (That's what I get for telecommuting the last seven years.) I grabbed some inexpensive OTR suits on various sales recently, and need to have them adjusted. The "tailors" in Frederick...

    Tailoring pants

    I have a pretty short inseam(around 27”), and so I have to get most of my pants cut. My calves are pretty average at 14” but my ankles are very skinny- 8.5”. My foot can go through an 11.5” hole at least. My problem is the leg opening is always too big. I don’t know how long to cut the pants...

    Anyone ever heard of Byron Tailors/Byron Custom Tailors from HK?

    Hey all, I posted this question on reddit but was told it might do better here. I’m new, so if there’s a better forum/place to put this, I’d appreciate it. I received an email inviting me to a presentation being put on in the Los Angeles area, which is where I work. It’s going on from February...

    Myers Park Tailors Bespoke Charlotte, North Carolina

    Has anyone gone here for custom suits, or at least alterations? He has good reviews, was friendly and knowledgeable. From his website, I didn’t know he did bespoke, but he said he always has and is updating the website. He said he does two fittings, and does all the work himself. What concerned...

    Help with Tailor-made suit

    I just got my first ever tailor made suit from a local tailor and am pretty excited about it. However, I noticed the stitching on the collar seems a bit off (pics below, the stitching seems to be made by hand but looks a bit crooked) and I wasn't sure if that is expected or is it a mark of a bad...

    Good morning everyone! I am currently on the search for a new tailor in the Orange County, NY area. While my current tailor is pretty good with my alterations, he seems very picky on what he will/will not work on. I am not looking to replace him, but rather have a back up tailor for small...

    I was wondering if anyone in the San Gabriel Valley Area has a good tailor they would recommend (particularly for darting shirts)?! Is it an "easy" job or can pretty much any tailor do a decent job with this?!

    Suitsupply Fit Issue

    I have tried on everything at Suitsupply and finally settled on their Hartford suit. It was ordered in and as I was trying on the pants the salesperson tells me that there will be too much tailoring and that the pants won't look right once they have been taken that far in. The suit is a 40 and...

    What's the difference between a bespoke shirt and a MTM shirt?

    Let me preface this a bit. I understand the general concept and difference between a bespoke shirt and a MTM shirt. Basically, a bespoke shirt is on fully customized to my body and a pattern is made to cut the shirt to my body dimensions. A MTM shirt takes an existing pattern and then takes...
