Hi All,

Please help me improve my Chan pattern in preparation for their upcoming visit to town. The suit is my first and only Chan to date, a 3-to-2 button made in 150's Claytom mid-gray.

I'm generally happy, but what do I know... Having said that, I think that:

1. The shoulders can do with a little less padding or be less built-up.
2. The rear seems slightly longer than the front - maybe it's just my posture.
3. There's a wierd bunching up in the rear side of the sleeves, which may have to do with shoulder pitch(?)

Is it just the way it's photographed, or is the buttoning stance quite high? In the first picture, it looks like halfway between waist and chest. I think other things look fine, other than the areas you've already mentioned.

Sorry to say, but the back is a mess. And, you may be on to something with your thoughts about the sleeves.

Also, from the side view, the waist area of the jacket might be projecting too far, well beyond the stomach.

Tomasso is right. Back balance is way off and the collar itself is too short and is not huggingyour neck well.

In front, I would ask for fronts that are slightly more cut away, but that is preference. The back needs fixing.
