Return of the Tailor
Fall '07 is bringing back the tailored look and it seems not too soon. We are seeing structured suits and high waisted wide leg pants. This is a dramatic change from the ultra low rise pants that drag on the floor. So you may be one of those people who no matter what the regular length pants are always too long. There are a couple of solutions to this problem. First, look for brands that carry pants in a variety of lengths for example The Gap and Banana Republic. Second, shop at locations that provide alterations such as Nordstrom or Macy's, and finally if all else fails take your pants to the local cleaners. They are usually more than happy to make alterations (for a fee of course). So instead of a pair of pants dragging on the ground and looking like you have been wearing them for over a year when in reality you only wore them once, raise the hem to have them line appropriately with the shoes you are wearing and your pants can look fresh for many wears to come.
