    Well, if my rather skilled tailor is able to physically do this. i.e. it's possible, then I'll do it.

    Is it possible to at least move the pockets in a bit and take out the chest a bit?

    I Googled it and saw that it means "you have been trolled."

    I don't know if he means Matt is trolling or I'm trolling. I don't think either is right.

    Sure, you can move the pockets in, but as others have noted, the plaid will no longer match.

    Doesn't it match in Matt's pic? And if that's not the best idea, then can a tailor do something about making room in the chest so the lapels make more a V and not a U?

    He Photoshopped that, didn't he? Tailors can't do that. They have to move physical panels of cloth.

    Probably not, the neck point is not changeable after the coat is cut.

    How much do you want to move the pocket forward? Also, how big is the pocket? I think it would be possible to move the pocket forward but you'd have to move it the same amount of distance as the distance of the pattern. This may also involve having to cut the pocket since moving the entire thing over by one plaid pattern over means you will have left over material. If the pocket is large enough that once everything is cut, it still looks like a normal size pocket, then it may be possible. Or you may be left with a very small patch pocket on the front. Also, examine the two pockets and see if by switching the left for the right and vice versa, the new pattern will match and move the pockets forward in one fell swoop. Also, since the primary distinctive feature is the horizontal striping (or the one that catches the eye easiest), if you don't nitpick too much about pattern matching, then you may want to do it anyways and simply have the horizontal tan lines matching. The third option, and I don't know if it is possible, but can you take the pocket off, and with that material, add a flapped pocket instead? Can Mafoofan photoshop something like this up? I'd be curious to see it. Also, I've realized this has become a new "Who Wore it Best" thread.

    Looks like you could move them in an entire square and get pretty close, no?

    Very good.

    Except he still looks like an amputee. You should have photoshopped in a left arm.
