    last week I posted me wearing a khaki blazer and am wondering if a tailor can make this work. it's a helmut lang, my vested interest being, it was expensive and is decent quality. here a pics, more can be taken tomorrow if needed. thanks!

    That thing is 2-3 sizes too big for you. You can roll the dice with a tailor ripping it entirely apart, cutting it down, and re-assembling -- chance of success slim to none. Or return this and start with something a lot closer to a decent fit.

    im looking for a slim trouser, specifically from brooks bros.

    the milano slim fit pant looks nice - anyone have experience with them?

    any other brooks bros trousers worth checking out?

    i will be wearing them to a somewhat casual outdoor wedding.

    The milano fit is slim, but not Incotex/Mabitex slim.

    How is the Nordstrom 1901 brand? Specifically their sport shirts. The price is right, however Brooks Brothers can be had for that, as well as Ike Behar on sale/Ebay. Is the quality good for the price?

    Ciao tutti from Italy! I recently read a question regarding looking for a tailor and wanted to know if I can post and where the name of my tailor, who has been tailoring for more than 40 years now and is based in Sherman Oaks California. He is my father! Thanks all and looking forward to being a part of this forum. By the way I have a lot to say regarding fashion trends in Italy! [​IMG]

    When people talk about "shell cordovan," are they referring to the leather or the color? I get the impression shell cordovan shoes can be in colors other than cordovan, but I may be mistaken. (Hence the question.)

    Shell cordovan refers to the leather. Cordovan by itself could be ambiguous.

    "Shell Cordovan" means the leather. Cordovan can be either a color, or an abbreviation of Shell Cordovan. You are correct.

    For moleskin pants, which brands are affordable and good? I am in Singapore so I'd really prefer if you guys can recommend me something that can get in Asia as well. But heck, I can try ordering online too [​IMG] though the fit might be questionable [​IMG]

    whats the quality like on Mabitex pants? There's a FS on this forum, like $70 shipped. Is that a value proposition?

    There's tons of discussion on them if you do a search. There's at least two lines and $70 is certainly decent if it's the higher line.
