I feel bad about this. I did the opening bid of $19.95 on A&E Cavanaugh Penny Loafers, and I thought I saw a buy outright for $195.00. 3 days later I won these.

I bought 9 Suits from Russel's tailor in montreal (one of the best tailor in Canada), each of them for 10$! They are incredible and all basically like new, but they are too big for me. The best exemple is the sleeves are about 3 inches too long for me. Every other area are fine, it would need tappering of course, but the shoulders are fine (i have really broad shoulders) and I think shortening the jacket about half an inch would be a must.

As anyone done alterations this extensive? What was the result? Right now I'm thinking about giving them up as I feel like it would cost me about 250$ each to alter, for maybe a bad result. :(
