    How does this work ? Do we send an emissary to MC with all our questions and requests at once ?

    Is there an embassy thread deployed over there to provide safe haven to the courageous ?

    They fancy themselves igents of the highest caliber, so I'm sure they'd be more welcoming than sw&d

    ill get around to posting a pic. its the plokhov zipper blazer but it is a bit more MC than ann,cdgh+ etc.
    the sleeves are too long and me thinks its un-tailorable

    that shouldn't be a problem. if there are working cuff buttons there's always an opportunity to have it shortened from the shoulders though that will inevitably slim the arms a touch. and you don't look skinny (you work out bro :smarmy: ) so gotta be careful with that. if no [functional] cuff buttons then who cares if one goes away. and i can't tell without pics but some jackets are meant to have exaggerated sleeves (eg i have an ann and a nuur that are like that)

    if its past your knuckles, that sounds pretty long. where would you have the sleeve sit ideally?

    the forum has already cycled thru like 4 generations. when i started reading in '04, there was just one forum, no separate sw&d. from what i remember most of the threads were about nudies or edward green sales. ;-) sw&d is way more diverse now. it shouldn't even be called streetwear and denim imo, since it includes many other modes. i like reading it more than mc which seems to be filled with law students prepping for their first job.

    btw.. i think a lot of mc crew have no clue about the sw forum aesthetic or interests here. but a few do. there's an interesting little tussle that points out some of this divide in the cbd thread.

    btw if you have an mc type tailoring question you could probably ask gdl or nobd (or me if you want). i think they will understand the sw pov. better than some of the rule-following threads.
