DH and I both lost a lost of weight over the last few years. We both had our professional clothing altered multiple times. My women's slacks were altered from size 14 down. The second time, they had to get the "good" tailor to come decide how to do it. Each time, it was about $100 for a couple pairs of slacks. But since they were St. John and a new pair was a lot more than that, I didn't feel bad about paying the money.

When I got to the point where they were falling off of me for the third time, I finally bought new. Bought size 8 and size 10. And bought less expensive brands because, well, I'm not sure that anyone really pays attention to whether I'm wearing a pair of St. John black slacks or a pair of J. Jill black slacks.

ThyPeace, has not had a pair of dress slacks on in four months. Hasn't had long pants on in two months.
