    Durn. Would have gone, too. If I hadn't had gotten in, at least I would have met the living legend...Dig.

    Dig, a question from the thrft thread: does K&G shorten sleeves at the shoulder seam. I went to mine (in NOVA) and they only did them at the sleeves. If yours does, how much do they charge? May have to make the trek to MD.

    That's what I thought. So that WAS you crying shamelessly by the curb on Greenspring Valley Rd?

    Living legend? :lol: They do not have the skill to shorten from the sleevehead. Sleeve ends only, I'm afraid.


    I don't think it mattered. I had to list all of my sizes on the data sheet. The tux question appeared to be extra credit.

    I keep recalling stuff I forgot to post earlier. There was a guy who was clearly in his upper 60's about two rows in front of me who was having trouble with his data sheet. Seems he didn't know what size coat he was wearing so everyone was trying to assess him on the spot. Someone finally suggested that he look at the label inside the pocket of his J.A.B. How can someone make it that far in life without having any clue as to the size of their clothes.

    The coat that I am wearing in the pictures above have surgeon's cuffs and were too long. The suit is a thrifted Brooks Brothers custom. I tried to have my usual seamstress fix the sleeves but it was a bit of a mess as it was beyond her ability and she didn't have a buttonholer (amazingly). I had to go to a better tailor to have them done and he hid the original bottom button hole underneath and created a new one at the top. It leaves the buttons dangerously close to the edge of the sleeve but IRL, no one has a clue. I paid $45 for the sleeve shortening and two new working button holes.

    I used Marley Tailoring which is near my home. Since he had to repair the damage done by the seamstress, who is more than competent for my usual tailoring needs, I didn't bother asking him about adjusting from the sleevehead.
