Can I adjust these in the basted fitting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm getting my first bespoke suit. I went in for my measurements for the first time today. Can I adjust the following during the basted fitting in one week or should I call right away and tell them I want to adjust these?

 

1. Widen the lapel from 2.5" to 2.75" or 3". Which would be better? I want an all-purpose suit (business, weddings, etc) that will stand the test of time, be appropriate for my build and not succumb to the vagaries of fashion. I'm thinking the 2.5" that the tailor suggested is a bit too narrow and too fashion-forward.

2. Instead of center vent, side vents

 

I'm 28 years old, 5'9" and 150 lbs. For my height/weight I think I'm thin but yet an athletic build? 16 neck, 40 chest, 32.5 waist, 18 shoulders across the back, 9-10% body fat

Call him ASAP. Those are significant changes.

Ok thanks. I'll call him Monday morning. Any suggestions on lapel width?
