Tailoring: Grey Pants

These are the pants that I bought a few weeks ago, and I decided to take them to the tailor instead of hemming them myself. I like the grey color and slight texture, and I love the fact that I didn't have to agonize over the right length for the hem or spend an hour pinning and blind-stitching them. 

All I had to do was step up to the mirror and look ahead. He pinned them and asked if it was the correct length (it was), and then I changed back into my shorts and left. I think that from now on, with high quality pants, this will be my new modus operandi. For $10, I think it is worth it. 

I got the shirt, and another of the same in eggplant, the other day during the 50% off the clearance rack sale at Ann Taylor. Do you like it tucked in with a belt or left untucked better?

Blazer: Ann Taylor

Do you hem your own pants or take them to a tailor?
