    Want to buy a pair of RL chinos which come already hemmed with no cuff.

    Is it feasible to buy a leg length that is 2" longer than I normally wear and turn this into a cuff? How much cuff would I manage out of it?

    Would it look silly as the hem crease has already been set?


    I broke a older pair of chino's down last night for some altering fun... as long as they aren't a darker fabric with a washed look it should be ok. But you might want to buy them 2 sizes long if you can, there isn't a lot of fabric in the existing hem. But I dunno, hem and chino's seems weird..

    Everything about that model is bad. The jacket is too short, the pants are too long, everything is too tight, and he has both buttons buttoned. Don't make those same mistakes, make sure it fits you.

    Cockpit of buttons is up to you. I think dark or light could equally work well.


    The only reassuring thing about the fit of that suit is that every other yoox suit and model look just as bad. All of the suits are to tight, all front buttons done up and all pants "stacked" with the raw hem hanging out. [​IMG]
    I can only go by size.. so I got a 40(50) and I'm a little more like a 39 so I hope it fits (cus I need a new suit for next weekend).

    Is there a name for the styling of this sole? The particular part where the sole has a layer of different material/color to it. I like the look but I wasn't sure the proper word for it.

    Heavy lug sole

    I think contrast welting is what you're after. The fact that it's a lug sole is more or less irrelevant to the color of the welting.

    For the love of God, someone explain the purpose of the ".." editing method to me so I don't go crazy.
    The one or two members who do that find it to be an appropriate way of demonstrating their superior wit. The rest of us can only aspire to such things.

    Some people want their posts to appear only temporarily. This board doesn't allow you to delete your own posts, but it does allow you to edit them. The minimum number of characters in a post is two; hence, ".." serves as the nearest thing to deleting one's own post. This was either invented or popularized by a member named Merkur, and has been dubbed "merkuring" in his honor.

    Now, as to why somebody would regularly post things that they want to immediately erase (as opposed to addressing the occasional error in judgment), I have no idea. I suppose it keeps some of the inside jokes really inside.

    What do you think of this shirt? Can it be worn outside pants? Is the length ok? How is the fit?

    Can you replace smooth silk facings on a tuxedo with grosgrain? And any idea is to how much it will cost (provided I supply the fabric)?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't see why not. As to cost, I am at a loss. I would imagine it would all have to be done by hand, perhaps somewhere around the hundred dollar mark?

    I couldn't get away with wearing them, but if it works for you then go for it. I assume you'd be wearing this casually in the spring, yes?

    Yes, and into summer; most likely sockless with a white linen pant.

    Should be just fine.

    I'm thinking Nay... The 8 drop is killing me with these tight pants... I should have never squatted that once in high school. Also only about 2" to hem up on these, that model must have been short.

    I'm certainly not an expert in these matters, but I think it looks alright. I'd probably like a little more waist suppression, though. Wait for expert opinions.

    By the way, who makes that suit?
