    Navy and Brown - I was tempted to get the light blue to.

    Hey Rick,

    How much does your tailor charge for shortening the sleeves by detaching the sleeve head? I have an SC with working cuffs which makes shortening by the sleeves impossible.

    That's a pretty big Job. We normally charge $75 from the sleevehead. Mind you, to shorten from the sleevehead will also result in a narrower bicep area.

    Thanks, Rick. There's no other way for me to shorten it without ruining the working cuffs. That said, I'll be stopping by today! Look forward to seeing samples of the new suits.

    @spiermackay is your natural linen trouser going to be see-through?

    Nope. It's a proper trouser weight. You'll be surprised at how substantial these are.

    What's lighter, the brown or medium brown linen trousers? It's hard to tell on my monitor. What would be more versatile?

    Medium Brown is lighter by a few shades. They are distinctly different. For the summer, my preference is for the medium brown as it contrasts more with navy sportcoats, etc. The brown is great as well, but has a slight gray undertone to it.

    Stopped by the store yesterday and saw the new suit samples. They're really nice. Don't sleep on it.

    Just placed an order for the neapolitan suit. Pictures look nice, so I was sold.

    Be sure to post pictures, I would be interested to see how the suit looks like in real life. Plus, it's been a while since we've seen fit pictures from you!
