    I just left my Canali suit jacket at this local alteration place.
    One of the things that I want to fix was to taper sleeves. But the one thing that wondered me was when the seamtress was pinning the sleeve seam, she pinned at the rear seam of the sleeve. Isn't "inseam" of the sleeve should be used to taper a sleeve?

    Any comment?

    IMO she did it right, as the back seam is more the outseam.
