How Much Can You Alter Our Garments?


In a previous post we showed some of the typical points of measurement used by the tailored clothing industry. While we attempt to create sizing options based on extensive studies of anthropometric data, the reality is that no two bodies are alike and sometimes alterations are necessary to make a ready-made garment fit better.

In the next series of posts we will show what allowances have been built in to every Hart Schaffner Marx suit to allow for these alterations.  The first is the sleeve length.
