    Picked up my charcoal Heirloom cardigan from the mailroom today... this thing is absolutely sick, definitely one of the best knits I own right now. My only regret is getting online at 1:05 when the sale dropped; wish I could have nabbed the Blackwatch cardigan too :eek:

    to everyone posting just to say what they've purchased or received: you guys need to seriously step up your game and start posting photos so we can see how you're wearing this stuff in everyday life. NYR, kg and I can't be the only ones...

    this thread is worthless without pics!

    A week for a hem? Bizarre.

    All of those donegals are natural matches for #8 and Ravello shell. I'm wearing my donegals today, and personally like a gingham or tattersall with it.

    Haha, I get so envious of everybody here who lives in a city with decent tailors. Right now I'm in a small mid-west college town where it seems all the tailors have some sort of racket going on. $12 for a hem, $22 to get the waist taken out, guaranteed to take at least a week if not more, and mediocre stitching to top it all off...

    Okay. Quick snap with my iPhone.
    Don't even remember what the the pants are but they have a bit of green in them and they are flannel. Picked them up a few months ago when Mike put them on sale.

    First off, Go Boilers :p

    But if you ever feel compelled to take matters into your own hands, buy a small sewing machine and do it yourself - it's quick and easy to do a hem, and it's not hard to do the waist on these trousers. Just learn on a lesser pant first and then do it yourself! Think of each $12 and $22 that you could save by getting your own machine.

    Good god....I pay $20 for a hem, $30 for waist, and wait at least a week. Stitching is good though!

    Bay Ridge, eh?

    (Joking -- of course Ercoles charges these prices for their work deservedly.)

    LOL, pretty standard pricing by "tailors" round these parts. Dry cleaners are slightly less, but work is shoddy at best.
