is getting a sportcoat shortened an advisable move? I've heard a lot of tailors won't do a good job on this. just wondering; mine could take an inch off (but it's not egregious, i might leave it.) Yes, it's definitely possible to get an inch taken off the bottom. You'll want to take it to a pretty skilled tailor though, as they'll need to rebuild the rounded edge on the bottom. I searched Men's Clothing and found a thread on it - so this is something that can absolutely be done. Our preferred tailor here in NYC offers it as a service too. Here's a link to the thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=42883 Hey, Just wanted to thank Mike (well in this case it would be Adele) for the great service! I went to NY for 4 days and passed by the Orchard St. store and bought the silver zig-zag melissa ballet flats for my girlfriend and she loves them!! The quality is really amazing compared to the crappy 20-30$ flats she usually buys and even she was really impressed with it. I am starting to get my girl into higher end clothing (well higher end then let's say forever 21) and these ballet flats are the right way to go! Really amazing, thanks! Thank you, really glad that she likes them! Those shoes are always a killer gift. Hey big Mike, any word on when these service pants are going to hit? I have my money all ready to toss at you guys for some new pants! Should be next week - I'm going to holler at all you guys once they land.
