Lapel fit/alteration advice needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi Folks,

I've been lurking for awhile and really love this board. OK, I made an eBay purchase ... a fresco Sartorio Napoli identical, save color, to this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

I received it today and am wondering if I need to send it back due to a fit problem. More specifically, the shoulders fit well, and there is seemingly enough room in the chest; however, when I button the coat, there is a very noticeable break in the lapel line ... i.e. they bend downwards toward the stomach a few inches above the botton stance. In The Elegant Man, p. 83, it is described as an "Arched Lapel."

So my question is: Can this problem be remedied by alteration? Or should I just resolve to send it back?

I've got 48 hours to make a decision, so your imput is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Can you show a picture of the problem?

Welcome to the forum, BTW.
