Is this fit of the armhole something that can be done comfortably with a mtm garment vs a full bespoke? I am working with a local tailor on my suits and would like to achieve something like this without stepping up to his bespoke, as its twice the price. He makes the mtm garments in houseArmhole cut high from the get go. I raise my arm, no movement of the shoulder. Perfect line.
All credit for this goes to Frank Shattuck, who hammered this point on my brain until I got it
Here is the calculation we used for my armholes, but I still dont get results like yours:
1/8 chest + 1/16 height + 0.5cm
I’m a 41 inch chest. I’m 70 inches tall. That would put the armhole at 5.125 inches+4.375 inches + .2 inches = ~9.75 inches.
