get em taken up from the shoulder?

i recently had to get the sleeves of a schneider jacket shortened - they had a working button, but because of the construction/thickness of the wool the tailor i use couldn't take it from the shoulder, so i paid like $75 to have the entire cuff recut. worth it.

i ultimately decided against that since the arm holes are already high and by taking it in at the shoulder adds to the small armhole thing plokhov has got going on. plus its more risky (although i had my h.l coat altered from the shoulders)

might opt for losing a button hole. i didnt want to mess with it too much because it was a impulse buy and didnt want to hurt the resale value but now im 100% sure that it isnt going anywhere satisfied.gif

I had this done a couple of months ago and agree. In the hands of a competent tailor, this is a fairly low-risk procedure.

The topic came up a month or two ago (in RFT, I think), and generally, there are two ways to do this without getting the shoulder of the jacket involved. The easiest is if you only need to lose enough of the sleeve where the tailor can remove the bottom button (and its surrounding fabric). The other, which seems to be something a lot of tailors aren't familiar with, is the "cut job," which basically entails cutting out the entire set of buttons and moving it up the sleeve. There was a visual of this complete procedure somewhere in the aforementioned discussion.

edit: what VLSI said.

i think ive seen this with denim. ppl have their jeans hemmed but keep the original roping on the hem. an invisible seem is cut like 2-3 inches up from the hem.
same idea? or no?

edit: ah, got it apk. thanks!!
post #79509 of 117670
it's not, because this only 1 button. what i'm talking about involved removing the sleeve, extending the sleeve slit, and recutting a new buttonhole. similar.

Looks great, although the t-shirt could be a little longer (which I think has been the case with several of your fits).

 

Haha thanks. satisfied.gif

 

Almost all my tees could stand to be a little longer.  I'm exactly 6', which isn't super tall, so I don't understand why it's such a problem.  Sizing up on this tee would have probably made it too large in all other dimensions, so I went with a Medium.
