I asked my tailor for a double breasted peak lapel navy pinstripe suit . My initial suit trial was destined 20 days from the day of order (It was delayed for 3 more days). I went for the trail, and after trying on the jacket everything seemed ideal but the lapels. This is my first peak lapel suit but from what I have witnessed , lapels are usually broader and the gorge is at your shoulder level.
I asked my tailor if he can change this , but he said everything is as it's supposed to be . I contended with my knowledge of lapels and then he mention it looks this way cause of my build . I stopped arguing and left the store.
After all he's a tailor so his expertise surpasses mine OR maybe this time he's wrong and in denial.
My shoulders : 18.5 inch /47 cm
My Chest : 37 inch / 94 cm
Also , can this be fixed in any way ? I might have same fabric laying around, just a little though.
