Kevin has been to us a handful of times, and this time he brought in an amazing suit from Redeem, only problem is the jacket in his size was sold out. Since the suit was too cool to pass up, he bought the over-sized coat anyway, and knew just where to bring it.


After looking at the coat, it was clear that the waist needed to come in A LOT, the chest was too big, and the shoulders needed to be reset. He OK’d the size-down, and we did just that.



Now the jacket is set to go with the entire suit, and the cotton is perfect for a snazzy DC summer!


Do you have a suit that is way too big, but is absolutely worth investing in to get it right?  Give us a call to schedule an appointment at (202)567-7668 or email us at and we can help brainstorm! Check out these other suit re-cuts that ended in a perfect fit:
