My Tom James tailor arrived at my office first thing this morning for another fitting of the gray trousers with the protruding pockets. He took additional measurements as well as several photographs of the offending problem areas. He promises to return with the altered pants in a week to ten days so that he can ensure they fit perfectly.
I have had a hankering lately for a double-breasted blue blazer with peak lapels, flap pockets, and matte silver buttons. We chatted a bit about looking at fabrics and buttons on his next visit, and he offered a twenty percent discount on the blazer to make up for the trouble I've had with the pants. Although I'm still waiting for the pants to be right, I can't argue with their customer service. More later on the pants (and the blazer).
