Have you ever had your suit trousers relined?

I have--with bemberg. It was a lot cheaper than I expected it would be, about $35.

I've never had any need it. What have you done to them?

OK, accidents do happen but why buy such a poor second hand suit? The best place for that is the back of the fire.

Besides, for some reason, I seem to find suits where the jacket is immaculate and the trousers superficially look good too except when I look at the lining (Bemberg usually) which is usually somewhat marked hence my need to reline these trousers.


Plus the knowledge that someone went commando in your pants makes you never want to put them on.
