Hey, Alex did you see the Italian job, at the end when the guy is Spain looking at his shoe room? Is that what you are imagining? Jon.You just order an extra set. Keep it in your shirt room until the first set wears out and then have them changed. Otherwise you stand a good chance of the matching fabric or matching dye lot no longer being available when refurbishing is needed. Does not, of course, apply to white. P.S.: If you don't have a shirt room, you can keep them in a drawer. But ... if you don't have a shirt room, why am I talking with you?
Manton,I have never ordered a second pair of trousers, and in 13 years of buying bespoke clothes, I am still waiting for my first pair of trousers to give out on me. Â I have a flannel suit that's getting close to 8 years old, and the trousers are beginning to get a little threadbare. But they are still wearable. Â Flannel is supposed to be the most delicate of the traditional cloths. Â I deliberately avoid the supers and crazy-soft-expensive fabrics, though.
I am waiting to redo the cuffs on my shirts, altough it may be years from now. I can't imagine how the body of my shirt will wear out, and I figure that my present shirts can get me to the grave if I recollar and cuff them.Well, I may regret it when and if my flannel trousers give out. Â Or I can just keep wearing them anyway, like I wear shirts with frayed cuffs without giving a damn. Â Just like a real member of the English aristocracy.
