I recently had patch pockets put on a new MTM suit. A decision I now regret. Looking for a NYC tailor who could convert patch pockets to double welted. Appreciate any insights.

Live with the mistake. Can't imagine that turning out well at a realistic cost

Quote: It is common for a wedge cut under the patch pocket. If it is on your jacket that is where the besom pocket will have to be made and the position of the new pockets will be much lower than normal. Nothing you can do about it if the cut is there.

If you have a breast patch and want to convert to a breast welt pocket it is a major pain and very difficult to make on a finished garment.

If you use an alteration person who isn't practiced in making pockets it could turn out pretty ugly
