Hey All, Argg, My suit from WWChan finally arrived from the March visit. This is my third suit. Something is way off this time. When I put on the suit, the front is noticably shorter then the back of the suit. Somehow looking at the suit, it looks off balance also. They pretty much got my second suit done pretty nice which makes this odd. On my second suit, I requested Brioni-type shoulders. To explain it simple as possible and missing all the details in the process, the Brioni-type shoulder means padding runs from roughly 3/4 the front of the armhole all the way back to the middle of the back of the armhole. The lower part of the padding in the front and back is basically half the width of the corresponding shoulder. This is my understanding from feeling the few Brionis in my life. This is what creates what many describe as a very bold looking suit because the shoulders are not just built up slightly higher but creates a rounder shoulder. On this suit, the padding feels very different and the shoulder line is ruffled when I put it on. I think this is due to the suit being in the box so I will try to put some steam to work on it. I must say the buttonholes look very nice on this suit but the stitching on the lapel where it mets the collar looks a bit rough. Help, what should I do?
