1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Jacket on left I intend to lengthen sleeve by 5/8ths", jacket on right will reduce sleeve by 3/4".

    Does that sound about right? Ignore the shirt/jeans pls, for reference I'm 6'.

    Sorry I missed this, but you did the right thing....your tailor should know.

    Looks like the chest is too tight and the shoulders are too big on the lighter jacket (the darker jacket is too dark to see)...might want to address those issues while it's in the shop.

    Yes the left is too short and right a little long, but it's impossible to say from pictures the amounts. In reference to your 5/8", 1/8" increments are too small of a tolerance for any seam and even more so for sleeves, since you could probably mark it 10 times and not consistently hit the same spot within an 1/8". If you tell a tailor 5/8", they will nod yes and then do 1/2".

    I cannot choose one, both have errors that could make you look silly. Try consulting another tailor.
