might be just the picture stitches but can you get more 'roll' out those lapels, possibly by pressing? jacket seems to be sitting more like a conventional 3sb than 3 roll 2 (i know very little about this type of CM though)

the lapels on this suit are meant roll just gently over the top of first button, its much closer to a hard 3, not a 3 r 2. which i am fine with. i think my built works well with a hard 3. as well, you cant really press a hard 3 into a 3 r 2, it wont work right as far as understand it.

also, what is a little off here is that dry cleaners did not perfectly press the lapels evenly last time (yes, i am very mad about that), and to add to that, because i am slightly pulling on the jacket in the pic, i accidentally pulled down the lapel a little on the buttonhole side, and as you can see there is buckle/dent by the top button on the button side that is stopping it from its natural roll. so it looks a little off, and the full beauty of the roll is not shown well. had i looked at the pics before i left home, i would have adjusted that, and asked the wife to take a few more pics. oh well.

are these the MC details that you guys hate? peepwall[1].gif

I actually get a little paranoid about this when I have stuff pressed (though luckily they've only flattened the lapels once!). Do you have to ask your drycleaners specifically to avoid the lapels, or are they pretty good about leaving the lapels alone without being asked?

spacepope - my apologies. please forgive me my misstep, and do not banish me from this wonderful place. i like it here.

edit - Bam!, I have a great dry cleaner that I trust very much. they have always done good by me (aside from this small issue). i do ask them to be careful with the lapels, and the roll, and in general to only use a soft press. but i think thats just my being over cautious. they are good peeps.

double edit - spacepope - my apologies again. please forgive me my misstep, and do not banish me from this wonderful place. i like it here.

I've had so many tailors and dry cleaners ruin things that I just tailor everything myself and don't wash my clothes now.
