Has there been discussion/ illustrations on tailoring to remove collar gapping-- but not creating bunched / wrinkled cloth against the neck? I suspect this involves removing a notch of cloth on front side of collar band as well as the back but...at any rate, how do I correct this mess on a suit jacket I picked up recently and had tailored? It looks like hell
Nothin fancy today, mid gray solid suit and no pocket square !
Ugh this sucks!! I can't make it back to NYC this weekend and hate to see tickets wasted. If I can send PDF tickets to someone to attend this black tie fashion show thing please let me know if interested : Appears to start at 4pm Saturday http://newyorkcity.eventful.com/events/kingdoms-our-past-ny-/E0-001-062248663-8 Argh stupid breakup....

Thanks guys! It's from Barneys, gent I always work with did another wonderful job for me, and his personal tailor turned around alterations in two days (inc functional handstitched sleeve buttons and even a handsewn lapel buttonhole w flower loop on this one!).
Cross post from Black Tie thread Finally picked up finished product, and tried on with the bow tie. I'm still not very skilled at tying a bow tie, however... 1 button Sartorio tuxedo, black grosgrain lapels, black grosgrain covered buttons, black grosgrain trouser piping (? Strip of satin between piping??) Cufflinks are double sided smoke pearl & silver from Paul Stuart, purchased a while back Isaia blue-black grosgrain tie, recent find at Saks August 28 black tie...
