    LeJouvre it was a pleasure and look forward to many more conversations ;]

    Liquidus I can handle orders and would provide the best service I could; I know it would lack the personal experience you would get in store but I would love to help you and any others for that matter.

    I don't want to market myself, unless the Admin are OK with me doing so, but I will PM you my work email for future reference.

    A few days late unfortunately but there is a sale the day after Fathers Day and some 60% winter clearance apparently online as of now.

    do you know if the Winter items currently on sale (it seems like it keeps popping back and forth) will be part of the Mid-year and/or Father's day sale(s) ? Thank You...

    This is really awesome news!

    BB shipping rates get a little out of hand as the overall cost of the purchase increases.

    Online could be a visual guide but going through a store helps in so many more ways than one, especially for the SA you work with. I always tell clients if they see something their interested allow me to handle it to save them money and help me - - WIN WIN

    If you don't have a SA then please feel free to PM me.

    ThanksSF, after speaking with my VM, he stated that those winter sales are usually at the last clearance with the biggest % off they would receive. The Fathers Day Sale is for current season pieces but we usually throw in other drops on pieces....usually.

    Hey everyone,

    I bought a boys suit from Brooks Brothers since I'm still growing and I couldn't find another decently priced suit in my size (34S).

    Unfortunately, the belt loops on the pants are too small and none of my belts fit. If I bring it to the store tailor, would they be able to replace them with loops that fit standard belt sizes? How much would it cost?

    Also, does anyone know how much the store tailor charges for basic alterations, such as hemming the pants and getting the waist of the jacket taken in?

    Thanks a lot SF!

    How wide are your belts? Men's dress belts are typically no more than one-and-a-quarter inches or so; belts wider than that are more casual.

    It is probably cheaper to use a thinner belt, but all the things you want done to your suit can certainly be done by a tailor, whether in-store or not.

    Just make certain the person who does work on the suit really does know what they are doing and that they are not some awful hacks masquerading as tailors.

    About making the belt loops bigger ... You may need extra fabric; belt loops may not have enough allowance to lengthen them just by stitch detaching them and re-stitching.

    This is one of several reasons to retain any waste fabric from alterations. Whenever you have trousers shortened, especially suit trousers, or any alteration the removes fabric, ask the tailor to give you the extra fabric that he removed! Belt loops are one of several uses for this extra fabric. Keep the spare cloth in a safe place with the extra buttons. You may never need it. But when a future repair or alteration comes along, you may be glad to have a bit of extra fabrid.

    Currently eyeing a Regent (40S) or Fitzgerald (41S) fit blazer/sport coat.

    When is the next sale again?

    After measuring, it does seem like a 1.25 inch belt will fit, so I will probably just buy a new belt. Thanks!
