    Jacket Alteration

    Hey there Cyclone fans. I need to get the arms on a suit coat taken in an inch or two. Any decent tailors in town (Ames)? I've heard Moormans on Main Street may be decent. Any thoughts?

    I don't know how old you are but if you are younger, try to find a younger person to do it or an Asian. That probably sounds strange but that's where I've had the best luck. Keep in mind if your suit was bought off the rack, more than just the sleeves don't fit right. Do your homework and fin out how a suit should fit, don't just try to look like yor coworkers or friends as their suits don't fit right either as the Midwest is home of the ill fitting suit. Ever wonder why rich celebrities look soo good in clothes? Because they fit proper
    Y. A good start is here How to Buy A Suit: The Complete GQ Guide: Style: GQ keep in mind you can make a 200 suit look like a $2,000 suit if fitted properly.

    End rant. In before tldr
