cant see anything the picture is all solid black.
no detail at all.
the reweave that size would cost a small fortune.
you have 2 holes to reweave one outside, and one inside.
then make a new buttonhole, and hope it works out ok.
and all for just a half inch?
Just got my suit remade from indochino. What do you guys think? Do I still need any changes? It seems like the shoulder pads are a bit thicker after the remake even though I requested natural shoulders.
I think the button sits too high, and the coat is just shy of being too short. A bit more flaring at the skirt might not be either. But what do I know? I'm no tailor.
Tailors: Do you have any experience with the Edward Sexton trick (well, that's how I know of it) of sewing the crease into trousers? If so, would you care to share your thoughts on it?
On all but the heaviest of my flannels, the crease usually doesn't hold up through the day, and on a relatively loosely woven fabric suit I have, the trousers basically won't hold a crease for longer than a couple of hours. These are all from reputable makers and not really light weights, so I don't think it's a matter of fabric quality.
Edward Sexton trick? If we're talking about the same thing, my tailor calls it a permanent crease. Reminded me of a military (dress) uniform...
Why is the buttonhole side lapel ending prematurely? The jacket was given to me; I wouldn't have purchased it because of the lapel issue. Is it even an issue? And if so, can it be fixed? (also, I'm aware the jacket sleeves are too long)
If this has been thru the drycleaners a few times, first thing would be have it pressed properly by a tailor. If the issue comes back after having it pressed then the collar is too long on the left side and can be adjusted. The roll of the lapel is controlled by the collar.
no claghorn, i am not that smart.
you didnt check the spoiler.
Gentlemen, I would love some feedback on this suit I got from Indochino. Something's off with the sleeves, can't put my finger on it. Thoughts?
Can someone please advice me as to what to inform the tailor (just want to go in with some knowledge and communicate my opinion) if I wish to alter my pants (bottom pic) to be almost like the top one as, to me, the top one is good fit for my body (approx. 163cm - 5'3) and style is nice (as I prefer slim fit cause baggy stuff just looks horrible on me)
Here's the picture:
I specifically made the picture bright and contrasted so you can see the outlines.
What I'm thinking about the pants I want to alter (bottom pic)
-Front rise looks okay and both is very similar to an extent as only difference is the length from bottom of zip to the part where it curves inward..don't need to change??
-Thigh area is too wide
-Seat/area for butt is too big/baggy
Sorry for the non-technical terms, which is why I wish to know what specific areas/terms I should tell the tailor, like change whatever seam, etc. to make it similar to the my good fitting pants.
And is it possible to bring the good fitting pants and let the tailor measure it and alter my pants according to it?
Thanks in advance!
go to the tailor wearing the good fitting trousers. show him what you want.
then put on the trousers to alter. be sure to cinch up the belt.
then point out the areas of concern.
its not edward sextons trick . its any tailors trick.
the stitched crease shows that its been stitched.
especially if the thread is not perfectly matched.
the pressers at the cleaners are afraid to lock the
press down hard, for fear of causing a shine.
So, that's a recommendation against. And thanks!
