Claghorn, is one of your shoulders lower/arms longer than the other?
I'm a tournament level tennis player, and my right arm is significantly longer than my left, and right shoulder is significantly lower because the joint is so loose. I was wondering if there was any specific tailoring you do to account for it since your fits are almost universally wonderful.
(obviously anyone else is welcome to chime in)
Yeah, my right arm is almost an inch shorter than my left and my right shoulder is about half an inch less long than my left shoulder. RTW is hit or miss. The length is easy, I just have the right sleeve shortened more. Shoulders are a bit tricky. Some RTW is doesn't make a difference, in others, it causes divots. If it causes divots, I avoid as the corrections generally cost upwards of 50 dollars and the tailor that knows how to handle them works an hour away from me.
The easiest thing to do is just have everything made for you. It took my current tailor about a jacket and a half to get my shoulders just the way I wanted them (at least as far as fit).
For lower shoulders (mine are even, it's just the size that's different), I think there are things you can do as far as adding/subtracting padding. And arm length is just a matter of getting the sleeves shortened, a fairly routine operation.
