One of the nicest things about moving into the fall (with the winter and early spring to follow) is that it becomes cooler and thus comfortable to sport the occasional double-breasted suit or navy blazer. This particular suit had to be taken in during the summer, and I also asked about waist suppression for a bit more shape. The next time I wear it, I'll try to get a full torso shot to illustrate that better.
The 40R jacket still looks a tiny bit long on my 5' 11" frame though, so I may at some point ask my tailor what he thinks and see if he can shorten it by an inch. You don't want to throw off the proportions and buttons of course, but I remember reading some years ago that an inch will not throw things off too much.
But that's a conversation for another time.
Have any of you visitors to Classic Style ever had a jacket shortened? Were you pleased with the results?
