Anyone have any experience with getting a leather taken in by the boutiques? Seems like I'm in between a 46 and 44 (mainly body feels a bit big and wouldn't mind taking sleeves up a little). Don't think I'll be able to try on a 44 so might have to go the tailoring route for certain parts.
It's tricky; if you're in between, the 46 tailored would be best, unless you think you're going to get smaller (i.e., lose a lot of weight), although I'm assuming you're fitting the jacket to your shoulders first.
The only place I'd get it done is in NYC where they'd send it to a "leather specialist" (i.e., don't have an in-house tailor, non-leather specialist do it). They'll probably charge you about $150 (a guess), unless you buy it there, of course. Anywhere else, I'd be VERY wary. The sleeves will naturally go up maybe a half inch from creasing, but you don't want them long since this is a cropped SLP aesthetic not louche RO.
