Hi all - has anyone had any luck tailoring a cord blazer? I've got an H&M blazer (size 36/Male) that needs to have the waist suppressed a bit and perhaps have the sleeves slimmed down, but not sure if the material is a big challenge.

I had the sleeves shortened and the waist taken in a couple inches on a cord blazer and my tailor didn't mention it being a hard material or charge any extra for it.

No trouble taking in, but if you have to let it out, you will 99.9% see some marks. Make sure its tailored correctly the first time, cause if they make it too tight you are screwed.
