Getting My Blazer Tailored - Instructions For The Tailor?
Hey guys, I am getting a blazer tailored for the first time and I'm not really sure how it will work.
I'm mainly just getting the sleeves shortend and narrowed, as well as slimming down the torso portion.
Telling the tailor to shorten the sleeves is quite straightforward as we only need to measure where the sleeves should end.
However, slimming down the torso isn't so clear cut and I don't really know what I should tell him. Just saying 'narrow the torso' is very vague. Will he measure my chest, waist, etc? Will he know the ideal fit? In general, how does it work when you go tailor your blazer? Do you tell him how you want it narrowed or does he do the work?
Sorry if I sound overcautious but my blazer is quite pricey and I want to make sure the tailoring is doen right. Some explanation would be great and much appreciated.
