good looking shirt, I really like the fabric/button combo

Can a jacket one size too big eg 44R be successfully recut to 42R or would it be easier to just do waist suppression? I'd be grateful if you could shed any light on this. not sure about the recutting of a jacket, but assuming that you bought two sizes too big (bought a 44 when you wear a 42) not only would the jacket need...

I think that i noted darts (if you can call them that)that will be allowing some of the room. My build provides some trouble for tailors and buying OTR pants as that I am quite athletic. Often, pants that fit me in the waist (Banana Republic 30s) don't fit me in the quadracept/uppper...

I am having a pair of Ralph Lauren Purple Label Tuxedo pants taken from a 36 down to a 32/31" right now. My tailor said that is wouldn't be a problem at all, I'll keep you updated as I receive them back from the tailor. as for suits, I am a 40$ drop 8 or drop 9. I always just plan on having the pants taken in. I may be shopping at the wrong places, but I have not found many quality suit makers that produce separates. Then again, I am usually bargain hunting

Quote: Originally Posted by rob I'm no expert on these things but on the few Janzten pics I have seen it doesn't seem worth the effort; I haven't looked into the cost. It seems rtw shirts tend to fit better than the Janzten shirts inspite of all the effort to send in specs. Perhaps all the personal input as to measurements, fabric, etc., creates too much room for error while a ready-to-wear takes most of the assumptions out of the process most clothes...

I think that it fits better than the pictures show, especially the pictures with it tucked in to pants thanks for all the help! Should I email Ricky with my next order, or is there...
Good Morning everyone, I just received my first Jantzen shirt and I am happy to report that it is quite close to being a perfect fit! I know I want to extend the sleeves a bit (I was thinking an inch, opinions?) I also want to have the cuffs made a bit bigger the cuffs, but I am not sure how much. They fit right now, but just snugly. You'll notice that I have a link in the right cuff, and not in the left in the pictures. I think that I have read around here...
