Hey guys....first post here. Great site....I have a pretty straightforward question.
Can a tailor shorten suit jacket length if needed? I'm just shy of 5'11" without shoes. I usually wear a 46R. Size charts put me on the border of R/L.
There's a nordstrom rack near my work that has a mainline Hickey Freeman (at least I'm pretty sure it is mainline)...inside breast pocket tag says model: Addison, not a number. Cloth patch inside says Hickey Freeman for Nordstrom. No LTD or black label anywhere. Pinch test..I can fee a third layer inside in several places so I'm very confident it's not fused.
Says made in USA with fabric imported from Italy. It's a gorgeous suit and is reg 1795.00....on the rack for 699.00
There's only one and it is 46L.
I tried it on and I actually think the extra length makes me look a little slimmer. I'm not really fat anyway, just kind of barrel chested.
It will certainly need the sleeves shortened and maybe overall length shortened a bit.
Obviously I don't want to spend $700 and have it come out like crap but I don't really want to pass up on crazy savings like that over a jacket that's only a little too long if it even "really" is too long.
If I buy it, i'd like to pull the trigger tomorrow so prompt responses would be greatly appreciated.
