These just evidence the pit falls of online purchase for such clothing. These forays almost always end in tears as the manufacturers have finally started realise. However unless you are a skilled judge of cutting, it is nigh impossible to resolve things such as divots by email - even if the maker really knows how to do which is rare. Sweat shop owners in India or China and not cutters/tailors they run sweat shops whose sole purpose is to send out as many finished...
