If you altered a sport coat with a large pattern. (not sure of the name, but its basically like a grid), would it ruin the pattern and look weird? Would the tailor know how to deal with this?

Depends on how skilled your tailor is, how you are planning to alter it and the look of the pattern.

Most alterations change the girth, it's either taking in or letting out, which would not have any effect on the pattern. You cannot do alterations which would reposition the horizontal stripes; for example, shortening the sleeves from the shoulder.

Talk to your tailor, s/he will know what can and what cannot be done.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
