let it out from the center back seam you think?
it is true literasyme that the creases go away when i consciously try to stand with less of a sway back... but I won't always be able to remember to do that.
Can an alterationist just unsew the button, place it a little lower, and iron the lapels to it?
Other than that I'm thinking of shortening the jacket by 1 or 2 cm and opening up the quarters... and of course fix the trousers.
