smart suits

The problem, of course, with smart suits is that one only buys them every 6-10 years. And one day one looks at them, and although the jacket is still in good condition, and it is just as beautiful a colour as it was 10 years ago, the trousers just won't do.

I don't think it is POSSIBLE to wear trousers where the hem tapers in to the ankle any more. Nobody does. And wearing clothes that would look completely dated rather destroys the point of wearing the smart suit. Harumph. Which is why I am delighted that a little concentrated googling turned up this site

Whether I am brave enough to do this or not is another question. Maybe I'll just take the trousers to the nice alteration shop in town...
