Hi chaps. Another manila based person here.
I've got a Hugo boss suit which I bought in a rush last year for a job interview. The sleeves are too long and it's too big in the shoulders and body (half it's always been like that, half I've lost weight).
The sleeves need to be taken up so much that the buttons on the wrist of the sleeve either need to be moved and re-done, or the sleeve should be taken up at the shoulder.
1. Is it normal to shorten the sleeve from the shoulder? Is this difficult?
2. The tailor wants to take in the shoulder as well. Is this normal? I thought you couldn't really modify the shoulders?
3. Recommendations for a good tailor for modifications?
I took it to Jeeves dry cleaners in New World Makati for cleaning and their in house "master tailor" promoted the discussion. I'm kind of wary of letting him at my suit unless it's easy, or I can get a recommendation for his work...
