    Dropped off a blazer at C&W today. A jaw-dropping $38 to lengthen the sleeves on it! Non-functional cuffs, but she'll move the buttons down too. That would be $15 where I'm used to going. Well, this will be a "cheap" test before sending a suit over there.

    Hope you're enjoying SF. It's definitely an interesting city. I live down on the peninsula (when I'm not at school). If you need any recommendations for things to do in the general Bay Area, just let me know.

    I did a search for thrift stores and that one came up. I'll have to visit. HAVE to visit. =D

    @nicholas


    I picked up a nice Banana Republic black leather jacket (and a few other bits & pieces) at Crossroads Trading at the Mission (Castro) end of Market Street when I was in town a couple of years ago

    Seemed like some pretty good deals available, but I had already bought enough to more than fill my brand new second suitcase by the time I got to SF, after nearly 5 weeks in the USA, so was at least as concerned with getting it all packed for the trip back to Oz as I was with acquiring more!


    They are also a possible venue to get rid of old clothes if there were any that made the long trek with you that you don't need, although I have read previous reports complaining about the low prices paid.

    Ha! Glen - I walked by C & W today. They're one block over from my house. This could be expensive...


    The move went well. Still lots of work to do since we're (my wife volunteered me) removing wallpaper and repainting the house. The lengths I will go to so that she thinks it looks "cute" but at the same time, she's already validated the move by winning a big startup competition this weekend.


    I couldn't do the Gilt Warehouse Sale this weekend, but I would be game for anything else. Starting over in the friend department here, as you can imagine.

    My wife is moving her tech company (social media consulting & iPhone app creation) to SF for better opportunities, and I'm leaving the family tree business and interviewing with companies out there. Quite the transition.


    I'm gonna take some oversized dress shirts over to a resale shop to see what kind of money they're willing to pay. If it goes well, I might sell a bunch that route since I'm too lazy to sell on eBay.

    So how come you are moving Nicholas? New Job? Better schools?

    Yeah, yeah, there are higher elevations, maybe 100 feet higher, but all things considered, there's a lot below us! lol

    That sold me!


    Now to find painters too! Yelp, it is!

    Will you be past 19th avenue? That's not considered high elevation! Inner Sunset would be near UCSF, where it still gets foggy, but not as much.


    I have a few friends that go here to get their stuff tailored, but I have yet to try it.

    Anyone have a strong recommendation for a tailor in SF? I'm pretty happy with the guy I recently found in Milwaukee, but he's not perfect and not cheap. It's $15 for jacket sleeves and $70 for anything in the torso.


    Getting a suit coat tailored in the body and sleeves, the pants hemmed and slimmed through the leg, a sportcoat tailored in the body and sleeves, and a button moved on a dress shirt = $195. My thumbs are slightly off (childhood injury), and he did one sleeve too short, so he's redoing that for free. So...not a perfect score, but the coat torsos turned out well.

    Shut up! I know where the happy cows really are!


    Slight venue change. We're switching to a sweet 3 bedroom house in Outer Sunset for the schools and space for the same price ($2900/month). It's a pretty high elevation still, but I'm expecting plenty of fog and cooler temperatures. Wisconsin tends to have even higher temperature swings in a day, much less a week. I'll be ready!


    I think the vacuum bags are a good idea. And/or the hanging bar. It'll just be one SUV since I'm leaving my work Jeep behind and just taking the Explorer. But good memory, Alan!

    Welcome to the Bay Area!! (although I'm in South San Jose, so I may get some flack for throwing myself into the "Bay" group)

    @T2, He will be in Bernal Heights, so it's going to be typical SF weather. However, the description of the summer is accurate.


    I'd say that your area would be generally sunnier than other parts of the city (i.e. Sunset). I'm from the same area too. Sorry to say that your winter clothes and summer clothes won't see much use. There are about 3 days of summer in the year where it hits above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and in the winter, the lowest is about 40.
