I have commissioned my first bespoke item, from Cicco Tailors in Butler PA.
I have just had the first fitting, where a canvas was covered with some left over material for fit purposes.
The images are given below.
I acknowledge that the shoulders are a little overpadded, and will be reduced. I have asked for a soft, more natural shoulder with a "shirt shoulder". This should reduce the divots.
The breast plate will be reduced to make the front a bit more slim
The back will be shortened to give a better balance.
My questions are as follows:
Where should the button stance be?
Any recommendations on the size of the lapels? I want to have peak lapels
General fit comments are particularly appreciated.
There will be a total of 3 fittings for this coat, so I want to ask for the appropriate changes before the next fitting.
Thanks in advance
