Hi all

Looking for advice from the wise folk here to tell me what to do to make this SF approved.

I am after a slim jacket so I will get the waist taken in. What length is to be removed from sleeves? What else needs to be done?

Also, what colours should I team it with. I put it over my work gear when I got home.

FWIW I am 21, 180cm, 165lbs.

Thanks in advance.

Pattern is hideous, possibly unwearable except for a summer lawn party. Also needs waist suppression.

I agree with that comment. The pattern looks kind of bad and I would imagine it would be very difficult to match with anything worthwhile.

In terms of fit, sleeves need to be shortened slightly and waist suppression is needed. If you are going for a "slim fit" as you mentioned, one other problem is the relatively high button stance. Even after tailoring, it might look clunky b/c of this.

All notes taken.

Fortunately, I can return the jacket and know I dodged a bullet.

Merci
