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,
I'm looking at this overcoat on Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123#ht_5801wt_1163.
My question is does anybody have any info on this particular coat and perhaps some thoughts on it as a bargain at this price point (the tie would be used exclusively as a pot holder)?
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?
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.
Thank you for answering my question and clearing up the difference.
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
