Can any of that leather be washed?
how much was taken in at the waist and at the heaviest area of the seat? and does fit well there?also have you taken in the crotch at the back fork?
you say this is a bespoke jacket . the seam that goes through the pocket usually has a little excess on the side of the seam that faces foreward. the side facing back only has just the seam. that means there may be something that can be let out. if too much is let out at that pointit cal lead to a distortion. so dont over do it. but in that area a small amount makes a big difference.talk it over with your tailor.sorry now that i read this again, you want it to be taken in...
You are right Musella A complete pressing should be done by a professional presser. Jefferd has an excellent tutorial on touch up pressing , its higher up on the list. click on "touching up your suit".
HEY BERTIE1 I dont care for suits made from SCRATCH. Its very itchy and does not drape well. I will stick with suits made from CLOTH. much nicer always. sorry i just could not resist that one. he he
you were not at a fitting. that was just the measuring session. a fitting is when the suit is partly done. if he is a "custom" tailor he should be able to make a looser fitting sleeve. if this is a made to measure, then he may not be able to have them cut a looser sleeve. the made to measure style you picked, may only come with a narrow sleeve. did he measure your tricep?
the amount that the back is short is the amount you need higher up. not at the shoulder butat the rounder part of the back. see the split that is opened on the back of the stoop-ed pattern.this is what you need, but it must be moved to where you need it, not where it is pictured. here.the amount to open may need to be done in 2 or more small movements.its a judgment call.
do you have a heavy and or a rounded back?
Like i said guys, "It's a crap shoot."
What is it? Just like many things in life its a crap shoot. When you play craps you can win big, or you can loose big. It's the same with online m2m. you can get a beautifuly fitted suit but you can just as easily get a piece of junk. Or something in between. consider this, you are expected, due to your vast experiance, to give the manufacture the correct information so that they can make the perfict suit for you. that makes sense right? you are telling someone thousands...
