    I suppose you could put yourself in a cast and miss your flight.

    Is this what you did? Were you happy with your garment? I want to ensure the best chances of success.

    The time travel was the most difficult. Getting the trouser legs to fit around cast was a challenge but I think it worked out well since the right leg is now 58% wider than the left, just how I like it.

    Sounds like you're reinventing the game. Where's that guy complaining about old man suits and silhouettes? He would appreciate you shaking it up.

    It isn't. If I recall, I was a 42/34 in the trial jacket/pants. Jacket would require some alterations, but nothing insane, and Button stance can be lowered fairly dramatically. I would be a 33 in pants, but everything else was wayyyyyyy off, so bumped up to 34. Adjustments were no issue, either. If memory serves, I hiked the front rise up nearly 3".

    I had a brief work trip to New York come up, and I was in the city for 3 days - 2 nights this week. I emailed [email protected] to let them know the evenings I was in town and asked for an appointment. Aaron got back to me with a date, time and exact location of the pop-up. That was the process.

    I should add that when I arrived, there was another person there examining the watches. Maybe it was SuEd.

    Do you have trouser pics? Really interested to see how this looks. I recently ordered KW suit #7 (as well as two SC's) and my coat fit has been really dialed-in for some time. Trousers aren't bad, but I've never been totally happy and I can't really say why, so I'd be interested in seeing a substantial departure from pattern like it seems you've taken.
