It was only from hanging out on SF that I realised one of my arms hangs slightly lower than the other.
I have now had all my jacket sleeves adjusted to account for this minor asymmetry. It's amazing how noticeably this small adjustment improves the overall impression of a "good fit".
My alterations tailor is now totally on side with this concept, but a recent purchase of mine from the Canali boutique had the sales guy a bit nonplussed.
- Pin it 1cm higher on the right, and 2cm higher on the left, thanks.
- Just do it.
- But we will have to move the button up on that side, sir.
- So be it.
[much shaking of head and surreptitious gnashing of teeth ensues]
- Very good, sir.
