Post by louy » Sun, 09 May 2010 12:11 pm

Been to a few shops and understand it is the wrong season ???
Need to get one of these for a dinner function this week and do not wish to spend a fortune.

Tailors can knock you out one in a day or two most.

Depending on your body girth, might be too much... drop me a note.

obviously I am not a shirt person. 34 inch sleeve completely confused me - my jeans is 34 inch long and I struggled to picture shirt sleeves as long and trouser legs.

But I Googled it and I think I knw what is going on. It sounds good - I will drop you a PM now.

Thank you for your kind offer,
Cheers

Thanks for your responses.

I ended up getting a tailor along Orchard to put one together. Cost about 100 bucks. Probably the best solution for me to accomodate my beer belly.
