I have this problem with most of my suits as I have a rounded back and a pronounced stoop. It's a bugger to fix.
The design really makes pattern matching a bitch too.

I'm amazed that this is an issue for so many. What business is it of theirs what you spend your money on? Unless it's money they've earned and you are kept men, but I doubt it somehow.

Meyer & Mortimer's work is undeniably better, particularly with very lightweight fabric; whether you think it's...

I am looking forward to the visit. Frog in Suit I am...
