    No way. Josh transcended modeling. Josh transcended clothing. Josh was life.

    I'm an idiot and realized the reason my Sifr stuff didn't arrive is because it was being shipped to my old address. I guess I'll be paying shipping again once the stuff arrives back in Singapore marked undeliverable :[

    If you really wanted an item but took a day too long to decide and it was gone, is it god's way of telling you that you didn't want it badly enough anyway?

    I don't think god particularly cares whether or not you didn't buy the item you really wanted

    That thing would destroy your clothes. Steam can take all the three-dimensional shaping out of a jacket, delaminate any fusing, and cause seams to pucker. Here's an Oxxford jacket, for example, recently listed on MyHabit.

    Well I'd probably get it installed for shirts and tees. I like @gdl203 comment about suits and jackets and the minimum dry cleaning needed.

    Even for shirts I would be weary as it might flatten the collar roll.

    That suit is from Oxxford's "The Morning After" line. Not visible are the carefully embroidered dark spots on the pants

    I know you said good quality but I like my pair from H&M. Cheap and fits really well. Their linen tees are also my favorite tees too.

    but they were right

    re: the noragi, i like mine. fits kind of big, so the shoulders actually fit me right and I have a full range of motion for various physical activities; i can cook with it on and not worry about splatters cuz it's dark and washable, I can dry my hands on it--basically, i'm treating it like shit and it looks good. The denim is pretty soft, not jeanlike. The sleeves are really long so that I can...not sure yet, maybe i'll unroll them for fall-season bicycling. I guess the worst I can say is that internal construction is unpretty.

    re: steaming t-shirts: wtf bro

    How much harm is there in buying pants that are too big and having them tailored?
    Without going to the tired bullshit of "my thighs are too big", If I find a good deal on a pair of pants I'm looking for, but it's 1 size too big (like 2" too big in the waist). Is it going to be all the same after the waist is taken in 2" or is that much going to throw the rest of the fit off?
    This questions is valid for both cotton chinos and raw denim (so it's obviously going to stretch a fair bit, thus i would hold off for a while before getting the waist taken in). FWIW the waist is really the only thing that would need to be taken in, I'm sure the thigh could be as well if need be but from measurements it doesnt seem like it. My tailor usually charges 10-15 for basic tailoring like this, but i've never purposefully bought a pair that was clearly too big before and everything I've tailored has had 1" max taken in.

    tl;dr - If I buy pants that are too big with the intention of tailoring them, is that a problem or will it be fine?
