    do it yourself



    I'm a grown ass man, so when there's something to be done, I try to do it myself. Lately that's extended to tailoring - I have a Kenmore sewing machine - & it's a rewarding experience. I'm not (yet) skilled enough to take in a blazer but I've made some righteous shorts out of some old Bonobos slacks, made a bunch of tees more form-fitting, & recently learned how to take in a pair of jeans at the butt seam. Anybody else do any of their own tailoring? Anybody completely averse to it?

    There was a thread earlier and there weren't a ton of practitioners. I'd love to learn though. What was the best resource for you to learn how to do it?

      check out survivalofthefittist.com on tumblr...he has a whole litany of posts titled "Meatball Tailoring" on his adventures of self-tailoring. Basically a WIWT blog with some interesting posts.

        Query whether a 'grown ass man' labels himself a 'grown ass man'. Also query if 'grown ass man' and 'grown-ass man' actually mean the same thing.

          I feel grown ass man and grown-ass man can be mutually inclusive depending on what you look for in a woman.
