    Just curious how complicated letting out a fully canvassed suit jacket a couple of inches would be? Have 4 jackets that I would like to have let out about 2" (if there is enough fabric for that)? Thanks

    Have the tailor open up the lining to see if there are any extra material.

    I agree, if the cloth is there then it can be done relatively easily [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies, I did find out there is cloth inside so now just need to make it to a tailor to have done. Anybody know of a decent NYC tailor open on Sundays?

    Thanks, never been to that area and have been meaning to explore so will take a visit down there. I did do a google search and the only place that came up was Victor & Tailors in Nolita. Every heard of them?

    Don't forget to add pleats while you're at it.

    Pablo at Stanton Tailors will take good care of you and they might be open on Sundays. Their number is (212) 353-9753. H'es let out and taken in numerous jackets for me over the years. Not too expensive although he can be very busy so turnaround time is variable.
