    Dear Forumites: Looking at a couple of Polo suits. Here's one of them: Polo DB suit I'm trying to date it....Polo and Mark Shale labels suggest 80's [correct?] My question is, how do the lapels look. Â They aren't current, obviously, but then the question is for what purpose I need the suit. Â Work is teaching; I'm not in the custom of wearing two piece suits for that. Â So it would be a special occasion item. The lapels for me recall something from the 30s. Â But if I wanted to get them reduced, would it be possible? Â How much might it be? Â I live in NYC. yours mack11211

    This probably belongs in another subforum [​IMG] There shouldn't be any problem with getting the lapels reduced. It might cost you a bit, since the alteration essentially requires the undoing of the edge stitching and trimming of the inside canvas and lapel points, and stitching everything back up again.
