A good pattern (store bought) fits average. Especially posture. A little posture change and the pattern needs adjustments.
That's obvious. However, I'm having much difficulty in getting a bullet point summary of what we believe the issue to be to take to my tailor to try fixing the issue. I love all the help and am very grateful, but it seems that I've tried many times now to just get some bullet points in laymen's terms for what adjustments I can (possibly) try to correct such issues. I've read all about pinning, balance, front width, etc. but it's all too abstract and speaking in theoreticals for me to firmly grasp and be able to relay confidently. I'm in no rush, and price is not an issue, I just want something to be able to quantify (even if it's incorrect) so I can fully understand what to tell and ask for, as nobody can figure this out!
For what it's worth, even Kabbazz himself seems to be unable to fix the issue - check his website!
This guy has the same diagonal lines! Yet I can't seem to notice it on anyone out in public except for myself and a handful of random people in the street, while others have immaculately tailored clothing...I'm at a loss here, guys.
Please please please - especially @gregor and @MANSIE WAUCH, since they seem to have a solid grasp on what the underlying issue is...please help me out and just break this down via bullet points on what I can relay to my tailor and start getting somewhere with fixing the issue. I'm literally just looking for approximate (or even placeholder amounts, specifically) to be able to fully understand what's causing the issue.
Right now, all I've gathered is "Add extra width to the 'centre front'" and I'm not even fully sure what the 'centre front' is. Is this just a 'front panel' fabric addition? So, in a sense, a front panel addition = a back panel reduction? Is the issue as simple as:
- Add 0.50" of fabric to the front panel of the shirt
And this is will *possibly* correct my issues? Nothing to add about shoulder slope, or hips?
