swapping pants on rtw suits - noticeable?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever swapped pants on a rtw suit? I have been wearing a 38R but now realise I am a 36R. However, pants that generally come with 36R are a 30 inch waist. My waist measurement is a bit over 31 inchs and the sales assistant has offered to swap the pants to 32 inch pants for me. Do you think it will be noticeable? (i should i say noticeabley bigger) the suit in question is a ted baker

No. It won't be noticeable. Though, if you _really_ are 31", altering the waist of a 30" trousers would be enough. They leave enough fabric to do that. Another option would be to exercise a bit to develop your chest, or lose weight .luc

I dunno. I'm active as hell, 11% body fat, 38" around the widest part of my chest (as measured the same by everybody who's done it), and 30" in jeans. But the 36 of every brand I've tried fits way better (even in the chest) than the 38 equivalent. The trousers of a 36, though, usually a 30 or 29, don't. I have no idea why this is, but it is.

Yes it is. Not only on waist but on tights and buttock. I have tried many pants which were too tight one size below.

so do you think it should go for the 32 pants or alter 30s to a 31? by the way ernest: loving the avatar "Why are their copies of the style section all over the place?"

I think you should alter a 30 to 31, unless they are too tight around the crotch or the tighs. If it's only a "waist" problem, like you cannot button it because your belly's too big, you should just alter the waist. They leave extra fabric for that. If you are concerned about the alteration, it's really easy to do, and it doesn't "break" anything. If I had a camera, I would show you. .luc
