I have decided that I want to spend some money on a MTM sports coat. At the same time I am about 20 lbs overweight and have been for the past 3-4 years. First I thought wait to spend serious money on clothes until I lose the weght, but that may never happen and I want some nice clothes now rather than in some distant future that may or may not arrive.
So here is my question. If I spend some serious money on a jacket now, and later lose 10-20 lbs, will it be possible for an alteration tailor to take inn chest/waist later so the jacket is still usable? I am guessing my shoulder width is what it is even if I lose weight or not. Most of my extra kilos are in my waist.
I have a good alteration tailor that I trust.
