    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Short is probably the best bet.


    Personally, I don't like the idea of ordering a really really nice suit jacket and then taking it to someone else to chop off the bottom.

    Exactly. That is why I buy 38S rather than 38R. Taking an inch off the bottom can throw off the jacket's proportions with the buttons and gorge.

    Having said that,I've ordered a short jacket from EP and it came out great. $50 extra isn't a big deal when the final product is a keeper

    Last day at work until the end of the week...fighting something off the past two weeks and after it got the Mrs, it took hold of me (hence the crappy self pics) and will be out of commission for a while. BUT, figured you older guys will get a kick out of the shitkickers today...made in UK Doc Marten 10 Hole Cherry Red Boots. Op Ivy on the ipod all day:

    Yes, the pockets are quite close to the bottom of the jacket. Reducing the length with a tailor would likely be much more expensive than ordering a short and riskier since there's more opportunity for mistakes. Well worth the $50 charge. Bear in mind that the sleeves will be half an inch shorter as well, though I expect it wouldn't be any problem to have them let out half an inch if need be. Certainly easier than shortening the jacket.

    pretty sure you can also specify short length, regular sleeve if that's what you wanted.

    Anyone have experience with 'letting out' walk trousers?

    Mine are about 3-5 cm tight in the waist (optimistic with my measurements, I must have been), not sure it that's do-able.

    5 cm, ~2 inches is just about the max they can be let out safely.

    so I ordered a couple of Rivet chinos before the restock (gunmetal+pumice), then a couple afterward (khaki+navy), and it seems the post-restock ones are a little tighter in the waist (a good 0.5" I'd say). I'm just gonna get my tailor to let them out so it's NBD but I was wondering if this was just a coincidence
