    Is my tailor BSing and upselling me?

    Earlier today I was trying a new tailor closer to me. I had purchased a jacket pre-lockdown that needed to be taken in at the waist, and having lost a few extra kilos during lockdown the need to be taken was even greater. I usually wear a 40 drop 7 (sometimes 8) jacket, and this jacket is a 42...

For instance, a fantastic suit find has a moth...

    Suit jacket alternation multiple times

    Hello, I got a suit jacket around 1 month ago, and got the waist taken in a bit. When I tried it on it feels good, but with one button closed it's just a little bit too tight. 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...

    On misbehaving side adjusters

    Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere. I did a pretty thorough search and couldn't quite find a solution. Side adjusters. While they seem to be the preference for most mens bespoke trousers, I've always found them rather finnicky and annoying. They slip, essentially. I wonder whether...
