    Hmm but don't you think it's more complicated on these short's im thinking of the adjustments on the side. And would they not look weird after it's done? Will see if I can sell them here but will go to a tailor tomorrow and see how much it would cost me and if it's possible.

    Thanks man!

    It would only look weird if they needed taking in an excessive amount. over 1" maybe?

    Yepp way over. I got it all wrong with the size guide, so even if I make the waist I think they would look wide from the bottom around my thigh.

    Glad to hear you like them so much, and 40% off is awesome. I know he can help mr with MTO. He has mentioned this to me before, but I'm just not really interested in spending the extra cash at the moment. Thanks though.

    You're better off just getting another pair that fits correctly. Don't waist your money on tailoring something that still won't fit properly when finished.

    Looks great! I have read a review of their stuff and it sounded good. I assume that the fabric is as nice as it looks since it is imported from Italy. How does the construction look? Description says that only the sleeves and shoulders are lined, how did they do the interior pockets?

    The fabric is very soft and the jacket is fairly light, good for spring/summer/early fall wear, and with a sweater in colder months. There is lining on the top third of the back and all down the front. There is also lining in the sleeves, just like every other jacket I own. Construction looks fine so far. The buttons are nice, there is a subtle pick stitching, and the pattern matches from body to arm. I'm at work and can't remember what the inside pockets look like, other than I didn't feel like they are any different from any other suit coat I've seen. I know it's made in China (looks like HY makes some in China and some in Italy) but I've been looking for a reasonably priced gunclub pattern for ages and just had to pull the trigger.

    presumably, the fabric rolls are woven in italy, and then the jacket is constructed in china by yount and co.
