    While your tailor does sound expensive for regular stuff, I'd expect to pay $150+ to take a jacket down two sizes (shoulders, sleeves, taking in the chest, etc), so that doesn't sound unreasonable, especially if the shoulder work was good. The tailors I've used will sometimes refuse to do shoulder work even if they can because it's a pain.

    @leftofthedial Matt those trainers look great. Did you oil/polish/condition them?

    To play off of that--what kind of committment do they require, re: LBM in Long? A few per size, or a total number?

    Any thought to doing a pre-order thing? I feel like there has to be at least some interest here from taller guys. LBM 1911 is probably my favorite jacket but it's a real hunt trying to find any 42L. (Haberdash had some this season).

    +1. I'd be interested in what type of interest as a few per size or a total number that would be needed. It seems no one really offers longs in LBM 1911 consistently and some type of pre-order thing would be awesome.

    I would get in on an LBM long pre-order.

    Received my Veneto twill coat. Guys...I'm SPEECHLESS. The quality, style, fit, materials are out of this world. This might be the best buy ever. Excuse my quick and dirty iPhone shot. BTW, pictures not do this coat any justice...:satisfied:

    I can't guarantee that I'd buy because cash is tight right now and I'm not sure of LBM sizing, but I've been looking for a casual navy blazer in 40L for several years and have never seen long sizes in LBM 1911. Casual blazers and 40L sizing are individually rare, but the two requirements together have been impossible for me to find.

    So....you looking to sell it? ;)

    Looks really really dope. This will go down as one of my top EP regrets.

    Just received 2 pairs of tweed Walts. These things are bonkers. If you're cold and it snows...these are for you.

    Now the dreaded 2 week wait to get them dry cleaned and altered.

    Dry cleaning first - why? Shrinkage?
