Let’s face it, going to the tailor is a pain. Sure, to sculpt a suit to perfection can be fun, but when you have to take your shirts, pants, jackets, sweaters, etc all to the tailor, in order to achieve a basic fit, it's a drag (not to mention expensive!). Also, a tailor can shorten hems but he can’t address all issues, such as proportion, and details like pocket and collar size, that make a big difference. Usually when we try to fix something at the tailor, it just ends up being out of proportion, as we have learned from bitter experience. In the end, many of us skip the tailor and live with clothes that don’t fit, and that’s even worse.
