    The seller is wrong. They're not the same thing, and that's a scissor pleat.

    Hello, I need some help sizing Gloverall duffle coats. I wear a size 40 suit right otr -- my chest, expanded (ahem!) is exactly 40 inches. But pit-to-pit measurements on size 40 Gloveralls seems to be 23 or 23.5 inches. That seems pretty voluminous if I'm not wearing a heavy sweater or tweed coat -- which I rarely do, as my office is pretty casual. I'm inclined to size down to a 38. Does anyone have any experience?

    Thanks in advance,

    Peter

    XPost from the Jcrew thread in SW&D

    I'm considering a suit purchase within the next six months or so. I've been looking at the Ludlow suits available on JCrew.com. Coming admittedly from a SW&D background, are they a decent offering for the price? Are there other options I should be looking at for a similar dollar amount? Thanks in advance for any recommendations/advice.

    can you take pleated pants and turn them into flat fronts?
    and how much would such a procedure cost?

    Hey guys.
    I'm considering buying a pair of Common Projects classy sneakers.
    I've heard they run large, but the people who say that only use other sneakers for reference ... Something I haven't been wearing for years and years..
    Do they actually run large compared to dress shoes ?

    I had a shirt from MyTailor altered with two back darts of 0.5 inch each. Now the back is less blousy but the shirt is a little tight around my chest and armpits, especially when I move my arms around. If I want back darts on my future shirt orders, what other adjustments should be done to the shirt to fix this? Do I just need to have the chest increased?

    Another question: What is meant by the phrase "does not hold a crease well" when talking about flannel pants?

    Guys I really need help! I have a black peacoat and I need shoes that go well. Please give me some recommendations in the $100-$200 price range that go well with black. I'm 23 and am usually wearing dark raw denim.

    I typically start by asking myself what, if anything, would look better than a classic penny, say AE Waldens or Bass Larson (both burgundy). If you're looking for something a little more casual, it's hard to beat Wallabees in Beeswax.

    It means exactly what it says. They made need pressing more frequently to keep a sharp crease down them.

    Yes. Cost is dependent on tailor, I would not be surprised if it exceeded the value of the pants.

    What is this, who is it by, and more importantly, where can I get one? :)

    yea after posting the question i did some googling
    so... depending on the pants and location of pockets and all that, it can get quite complicated and costly
    anywhere from $50-100+
    i probably won't bother
