will go to the tailor for a specific answer, but if anyone knows whether there’s a limit to tailoring… i recently got a suit recut, as i inherited it (it’s a brioni silk/super 150s so i’ll do what it takes), but it was basically taking a 44R down to a 42R. it’s mostly good except they didn’t take quite enough out of the back. do u think they couldn’t take any more out, or do u think i can have them take more out bc they were just being cautious and didn’t want to take out too much?
