I recently had three pair of trousers made by a local tailor. HeÂ took numerous measurements, and I told him how I wanted them to fit, so I was pretty confident that the trousers would fit reasonably well. When I went back for my first fitting, the they were so tight in the seat that I couldn't put my hands in the pockets. Â The tailor suggested letting the seat out and I went with his suggestion. I went back for a second fitting to discover that he let way too much out in the seat, leaving fabric bunched up in the seat area. I went back for a third fitting and the seat fit a little better, but I realized that the touser leg lengths were not even. At the fourth and final fitting he assured me that the legs were even, and the seat was fixed. Â I told him the pockets looked slanted from the seat alterations, but he assured me the pockets were straight. Well I got them home and after trying them on at home and looking at them from several different angles, I have come to realize the seat still looks somewhat sloppy and the rear pockets are slanted. Â I don't think more alterations will fix the seat. If the seat is taken back in so that the pockets are straight, they will be too tight again. Given my experience with this tailor and these trousers, what would you do?
