Yesterday I went to pick up my MTM jacket, but I didn't accept it cause it needed some alterations. I must say that I'm quite dissapointed with the work. First of all the sleeves were super short! I mean that's why they measure you right? To get the right lengths and all stuff. They are going to compensate the short sleeves with the process that you all know. Problem is that I asked for fuctional buttons... so I don't know if between the first button and the end of the sleeve, there's going to be a huge gap. So I would like to ask, what is the common or correct distance between the buttons and the end of the sleeve?
Also in the middle of the back there was a huge bulk or fold, I don't know hoy to call it. I feel that the jacket is to tight in my waist, for a MTM jacket, the waist can be let out a bit? Then the lapels they were definitely not what I was expecting, the patch pockets and the chest pocket. I have to pick the final jacket on monday, and from those measurements they are going to make the other one. I will have an arguement on monday cause I think I will tell them that I don't want the other one, that I want my money back. Seriously, I had a different idea of the final product, I ordered these two jackets as a test, if they came out well I will stick with them to make all my jackets ans suits, but as far as it has gone, I don't like how they work.
I will take my camera on monday and I will take some pictures of the fit, so I can upload them.
Sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. MTM is not always a cut and dry experience. When the person fitting you isn't properly trained and the person making the garment isn't the same person, you're going to run into problems. Posting pics is definitely your best bet. Post 6...side front and back. 3 with jacket on and 3 with it off. Make sure it's good lighting and decent straight forward camera angles. See the very first post in this thread.
Commenting on exactly what you're dealing with really isn't smart until we can see pics.
