Tailoring Query

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If I had a sportcoat that was .5-1" too big in the shoulders, could a tailor correct this? Is it considered a hassle?

If the shoulders of a jacket don't fit, put it down and walk away. Having said that, a competent tailor can do a decent job for a lot of money. But it's really the one alteration you don't want to mess with, that and the chest.

That's what I've been told. Thanks for confirming, Tomasso.

Narrowing the shoulders can get rather expensive. When you remove a sleeve and change the arm hole by going into the chest and back panels to get rid of that quarter to one-half inch on each side, it involves a bit of work. If it's a coat you don't mind investing-in, it might be worth it to you.

Generally, you are looking at around a $250.00 total to do both shoulders when you must remove the sleeves. If you have a high dollar jacket or it has some sentimental value, why not do it? If it's from the Men's Warehouse, offer it up to Vaclav's barbeque!
