    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looking back on "balance explained" we know that its controlled from the top.
    For erect posture we needed shorter back and longer front. But now for a stooped posture we
    need a longer back and a shorter front.

    First - the dotted lines show the front being pulled up short. This also requires the
    collar to be made shorter. The back may have a bit of cloth to work with very but rarely.

    Second - for a more serious movement we will raise the entire back.
    See how the back gains length at the top. the heavy dotted line shows how the bottom
    of the back no longer matches the front. This means the front must be shortened
    to make it match. That's because there is seldom enough cloth at the bottom of the back to make up the difference.
    The raised back may be used alone or in conjunction with
    again the collar must be shortened here too.

    Third - this is the same alteration except for the shoulder. It depends on how the fitter
    sees the customer.
