Cummerbund Fabric - Page 2

Also, you can have your tailor change the facings in the future. He may charge you for it, but it is easily doable.

I was not aware of that -- in fact, I'd ruled that out as an option because I imagined it to be a bit complicated.

But if that's the case, it may be easier to just get satin facings in place, and make this all easier on me. However, I am concerned that even if I changed the facings on the jacket, the trousers also lack the side seam facings. Is that easily resolved, as well?

(Alternatively, I could keep the existing trousers and get new ones made with side seam facings).

Very easily resolved for trousers too.

Just a quick update. The tailor agreed to switch out the lapels facings and the pant seams to black satin (with an "I told you so").

Because of the time it would take to get the vest made, and because I only have two weeks before some holiday events when I'll need my DJ, I've decided to go with a black cummerbund and bowtie.

However, I am getting a waistcoat made -- I had originally wanted a DB waistcoat, but I was told that something along the lines of what Bill posted would work better. So, I've also asked for this, in a different fabric than the DJ or the facings. But given the holiday season, I was told it would take a while before it would be ready.

Thank you all, for your help. Much appreciated.
