hmm isn't it supposed to flare a little? or is it flaring too much? I never noticed it too much
It's not supposed to, but it's a common thing with rtw jackets/coats. They fit like sacks, so when you size down to make the waist fit better, the hips become too small. Yours isn't bad enough to be unwearable though. I wouldn't worry about it (unless it's an expensive coat).
cool cool. thanks. I definitely need to let out a bit in the sleeve length so I'll have to bring them in and see how much I can get out.
I've got a vintage peacoat I won on ebay for about $50. It looked great when I first took it out but on the way to bringing it to the tailor to have the sleeves let out a bit I spotted a few small sections/spots with moth damage (really not noticeable unless your up close and looking for them). My question is if at $50, I should just deal with it and go ahead and get the sleeves lengthened or return the peacoat and look for another.
Thanks! Dropped the jacket off at the tailor. He's going to add a false hem because he said there isn't enough fabric to let out for the correct sleeve length. His only concern was that the fold where the original sleeve ended might be very visible. He's gonna try to press and iron it best he can to hide it. Hopefully it comes out as well as your's NOBD
