    Is it possible to turn a 3/2 roll into a true 3-button by pressing the lapels? I generally prefer wearing double breasted, 3-button, and 3-piece because I prefer a much shallower "V." But sometimes, I'll see a great deal on a 3/2 roll and I wonder if I can turn it into a true-button. Can I?

    Gents, My first post here -- thanks in advance for your thoughts. I'm having a tux custom made. I don't love the shiny look of satin but unfortunately the tailor doesn't feel comfortable working with grosgrain (I realize your first advice may be to find a different tailor, but let's just...

    Hi folks. I am looking for suggestions on how to fix a fit problem that I have. I'm 55, 195 pounds, 5'9" and generally a 42 regular fits ok. I have a slightly forward posture and a slight sway back. However, every suit I try on has the lapels that bow out when the button is buttoned. I've...

    In today’s Times there is an article that says Huntsman’s off the peg DJ has notch lapels rather than peaked. I always assumed that DJ's MUST have peaked lapels. Though the bastion of classical tailoring seems to think otherwise. Who is wrong? Any other thoughts on the matter?

    I've just noticed something odd about the shape of the right lapel and collar on this blazer? Like it's sort of extended and appears to have a button hole. What's the idea about this? So one can button the thing right at the top? Seems a bit strange for a navy blazer.

    We bought a tuxedo for my fiance for our wedding. There was no button hole in the lapel but from what I read online, I thought it would be no problem to have it put in. Apparently that's not so, the tailors we've talked to are refusing to do it, saying that it's very risky and could ruin the...

    I decided to have a local tailor make a bespoke suit for me and it will be my first. Unlike a lot of the bespoke advice solicited on the forum, my question is about the styling rather than the fit. When buying OTR, I simply grab a suit and decide if I like it or not. In this case, I’ll have...
