2nd revival of this thread
I don't believe one of the original questions was answered directly (or possibly sufficiently).
Is adjusting the sleeve pitch (rotating the arm of a jacket in relation to the shoulder/body) on an OTR jacket something that can be done by competent tailor? And, if so, what would be an estimated cost?
I bought a Brooks Brothers suit (Regent cut) online during the recent corporate card 30% off sale (I know there are better sales, but I'm under a time crunch); it fits well through the shoulders and torso, but there is wrinkling at the front of the sleeve just below the shoulder. I believe rotating the right sleeve about 1/4-1/2" clockwise (left, counterclockwise) would alleviate the issue. Am I flirting with disaster by considering this major of an alteration of OTR garment? Should I just bail on this suit and try for another cut and/or brand?
On edit: JefferyD did answer the question directly and sufficiently. Any other opinions? I'm leaning towards starting from scratch.
