    Is it really acceptable with slanting arms on a new suit? I guess slanting arms could be accepted as a compromise on a second hand suit but not on a brand new suit altered by the store. The arms on my new suit jacket are about 1 cm (0,4 inch) shorter on the inside than at the outside with the buttons, resulting in a slight slant outwards on the arms.

    I recently bought a new suit and the arms that were to long were altered at the shop. One button was moved on each arm. When collecting the jacket the arms showed to be too long and I returned it to have the arms one cm shorter. But when I collected the jacket the second time the tailor had only made the inside of the arm shorter. Now the end of the jacket arms are slanting. The sales staff said this was normal when I complaint about it. Do you agree?

    I suspect this is only a bad excuse because the tailor cut the button holes open and couldn't shorten the arms easily. I told them they should have moved two buttons on each arm and that this is their fault. But then the tailor said I was wrong and only one button on each arm is possibel to move. True?

    Please let me know what you think!
