Is it possible to alter a women's double-breasted jacket to fit like a men's jacket? I'm on the small side (36S-ish), which makes it somewhat hard to find RTW jackets in my size, at least at below-retail prices. While single-breasted women's jackets have the buttons on the wrong side, double-breasted jackets are symmetric, so I was hoping that I might be able to alter something like this Ralph Lauren Collection double-breasted blazer to fit me. The shoulder size (17") is good; what I would want to do is take the chest and waist out an inch or two, shorten the jacket and sleeves an inch or two, and replace the buttons by smaller ones. Are these alterations possible, and would they result in a good-looking men's jacket? Also, is the quality of Ralph Lauren Collection comparable to men's RLPL? Or is this whole endeavour just a Bad Ideaâ„¢?
