Where to take this jacket out?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I bought a very nice half canvassed jacket from Suit Supply, that is perfect at the shoulders, but a bit tight around the waist area and back area. The jacket is unconstructed and unlined. Should I take it out the back seam, the hip seams or the side seams? Or all of them?

Looks like all of them.

Summer is coming - diet until it fits.

They said it would stretch.

Yeah, all of the above.

I have checked how much I can take it out, and there seems to be around 2cm to take out in total around the hips, and around 1.5 cm at the single back seam. The side seams seems to have very little alteration possibilities.

All of these points - or return it for a larger size that actually fits.

Returning it for a larger size would probably have the shoulders not fit - which is almost impossible to remedy.

Now if you are saying return it for another cut that may fit better then I would agree. Other than that he would have to have all points taken out as others suggested.

And on a sidenote, I bought the jacket in Milan on holiday, so it would be easier to take it out.

Should I not take out the back seam because this will alter the balance of the jacket? Or should I do it if necessary to get it to fit? (After I've taken out the hip seams).

This is where Suitsupply recommended me to take it out:

I send you a picture what I mean with the back seams.
It depends which jacket our fabric it is. Normally it is between two and three cm.
I recommend you the max for let out of the jacket.
