    Shout out to Magasin for the excellent customer service. Emailed them about the issue with the PJ Pants and Logan got back to me right away to get everything worked out.

    You pick amazing stores to work with, Antonio.

    anybody here have experience with tailors reinforcing fraying fabric at the crotch on dress pants?

    the raw silk trousers from summer 2015 i have are at the point now where another wear or two will probably result in full on holes developing. i noticed they were wearing there a while back but didn't realize how bad it was, and wear these pants so infrequently (and not at all in the colder months), that i didn't think it needed my attention right away.

    i was going to take them to my most trusted tailor but just wondered whether anybody had any experience or advice in this.

    Wait, you smell that?
    What the hell is your crotch up to to warrant that sort of wear?!

    Very common wear pattern for desk jockeys. My pants wear out in the exact same spots.

    From what my tailor recommended, they place a similar piece of cloth on the inside and stitch over the area multiple times, so if you saved the extra fabric when they were hemmed you're in business!

    Apparently some tailors can do some sewing magic to 're weave' the area, which I imagine is like the kind of denim repair where you can barely tell where the blowout was.

    I have a beautiful pair of tropical wool trousers where the seat is worn down as badly as your pair, and yes, even one extra wear can ruin them past any repair!

    I've had a similar repair done after the crotch had actually blown out. The tailor basically backed it with another fabric and then did row after row of machine stitching. It is a visible repair but given the location basically no one with notice.

    Probably ancient clothes by the current state of this thread, but why not: Cream-On-Cream with Eidos Linen Jacket.

    It's a lovely material.


    Yes I like pleats.

    Probably again more tailored than recent developments, but I am just going to post some pictures I took for a different purpose. I am absolutely awful taking pictures of myself to show off the clothes. So here are some without me:

    Ciro Jacket. Actually unlined and thin enough for Spring.
    [​IMG]

    Augusto Sweater-y Jacket.
    [​IMG]

    Lavato Jacket. Fabric is great, fit my least favorite so far.
    [​IMG]

    Augusto 2: Linen Hopsack material. This Jacket weighs less than most shirts I own. Probably less than some Pocket Squares...

    Some retailers have the Augosto in 48 listed as small but others carry a 46. Apologies if this was covered before but is this an error on some of the retailers part?

    @nichpollica (can't find the @ function)

    I assume your suit is all bespoke, 46 chest 32 waist is >10 drop, don't think anything RTW wise from anyone would fit that great on you
