Old Seam Lines in New Linen Suit

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
From your experience, how badly will a new 50% linen, 50% wool suit show previous seam lines if the seat is being let out at the tailor?

Thanks for any and all replies. I've spent several days googling, and the topic is apparently non-existent. I've read quite a bit about the dangers of cotton suits, though.

Linen and silk will sometimes Grain.. at the seams
that means the threads pull apart.

if the seams have pulled, it is doubtful they will return to normal
