    I totally understand. Length is just the toughest dimension to alter. I had a couple of jackets shortened, and I think it just doesn't work out well. Maybe you can take half an inch, but much more and you get the balance issues. I've come to accept that I must pass on these, no matter how well it fits in other dimensions or how desirable the fabric and construction.

    Yeah, thanks and I agree in general - this was one I bought last year as a 36R, I won't be doing that again. Since last year, I will only even look at 36S and even then I pay close attention to the actual measurements. But for everyday use, even though I know the problems, it will serve - and compared to 99% of other folks out there, it's still pretty damn sharp.

    It almost seem that Victor has posted just to taunt me on my altered second-hand suits... beautiful stuff as always. [​IMG]

    Looks nice Diaz, I think the tie and the square color/patterns are fighting a bit with each other though.

    ^ Yup that's what I thought, maybe I should just remake the puff and show a different colour and pattern, this square is interesting...

    Victor - That briefcase looks really interesting. Details?

    RDiaz I like that tie, Drakes if I'm not mistaken? When I saw it on their website the pattern didnt really appeal to me, however I must revise my opinion after seeing your picture.

    Yes it's from Drake's. I also didn't like their ancient madder patterns from last season when I saw them on their website, but there was a picture in a blog and they looked much better there. The untipped construction is nice, too.

    This is one of the best ensemble Victor. Oustanding combination top-down even the accessories. Your bag gets points too. Who makes your beautiful shoes?
