Last week, I took 8 of my shirts (4 BB, 3 Canali, and 1 HF) to my favorite tailor to have the lower sides and lower back taken in. Basically, the shirts would tent out at the sides and lower back. He measures me and says that he will take in about two inches on each side. He pins up the shirts while they are on me, and it looks good. So, I get the 8 shirts back yesterday. I don't try them on at his shop because I have to run to another appointment. When I do try put one of the BB shirts on, I can barely fit my arms into the sleeves! For some reason, they drastically reduced the armhole size on the sleeve. I can put the shirt on, but the bottom part of the armhole rides up my armpit. Plus, if I extend my arms in front of my body (like to type) it pulls hard on the shirt making it very uncomfortable around the upper sides of my back. There is not extra fabric on the seams, so I doubt that they can open up the armhole again. Plus, it seems that they took two inches out all the way up the seam, so it is fairly tight on my chest as well. My tailor knows better than this because he has had plenty of experience with me before, and knows that my body shape (very muscular) means I need space in the arms. Plus, why the heck would the armhole be changed so much anyway? Anyways, they did this (ruined) all four of my BB shirts. Thankfully, for some reason, they properly altered my Canali and HF shirts. So, those are fine, but I can't wear the BB shirts as they are. (And yes, he did have me wear each shirt so he could see how each one should be altered). (1) Speaking practically, can the tailor somehow enlarge the armholes, even through there doesn't seem to be any extra fabric left (they must have cut the extra fabric off after resizing the armholes)? Or is there another way he can fix it? (2) Does anyone know the industry practice for dealing with this, assuming he can't fix the shirts? I want to continue our relationship, but I don't think I should bear the entire loss here for his mistake. At a minimum, I assume he has to refund what he charged me for the incorrectly altered shirts. Also, I plan to buy four new shirts to replace the four ruined ones. I'm thinking its reasonable to ask him to correctly alter those 4 new ones for free. As I will be eating the cost for the shirts, and not asking him for money on them. What do you all think?
