I've dealt with different tailoring issues before, but not this one: Â Today, I bought two Boss Hugo Boss suits off the rack at Saks Off 5th Ave. Â The price was so great that I couldn't resist, but each has the same problem- the shoulders are way too padded for my taste. Â I like a slimmer, trimmer jacket. So I bought the suits with big-time reservations, thinking that my tailor might be able to help. Â Yet I also vaguely recall hearing horror stories from friends who had the same alteration, and wound up with bad results. Â Has anyone here had an off-the-rack suit tailored in this way, with shoulder padding either reduced or eliminated? Â I've never had it done, so I wonder if that's fairly routine, or major surgery. Â I'd be curious to hear any feedback, so I know whether to get them tailored or return 'em before its too late. Â Thanx.
