UNCOMFORTABLE SHOULDER? forward shoulders - Page 4

Hello A A

Try the horse hair cloth if you wish. Its the cheaper method, but with the less possible success.
If it does not work it can be removed without damage. but you pay for both the doing and then the undoing.

TO do the major alteration, you must have at least 3/4 of an inch of cloth available beneath the collar.
Thats right there at the curve of the gorge. Your tailor will need to break a few stitches to peek inside.

Thank you. So from the photo you can definitely tell this is a problem of a forward shoulder?

 

Yes, there is enough cloth left in there to do it. I will discuss it with the tailor and see how it goes. Also, would this alteration affect the balance of the jacket, and the buttoning?

hi AA

Remember that cloth allowance is measured at the top of the gorge along the seam line.
Also the the cloth that sticks out as that triangle gets cut off.
