    Ebay Suit - Lapels seem off



    I finally got my J Crew Aldridge Suit today and overall everything seems to fine except for one problem. It seems as though the lapels weren't properly pressed on the suit as they don't start their fold until far too high. On my normal Aldridge suit the lapel starts from roughly the top button going up. On this suit however, the lapels don't start until almost 2-3 inches above the top button.


    Is this just something that will be resolved by a visit to the drycleaners for a fresh pressing (The jacket is wrinkled to hell anyway) or an actual defect. I don't think it's a defect as there aren't technically any constructed pieces that form the lapel, unless I'm wrong..

      The cause of that may have been a weird pressing job in the past.

          Is it a hard crease or a soft roll? I wouldn't worry about it if it's a soft roll. As you wear the jacket and use the button, the lapel will adjust itself over time. And you definitely don't want to "fix" it by turning it into a hard crease.

            Just as an FYI, dry cleaners don't technically "press" jackets, they put it on a machine that steams it from the inside out. Bad cleaners might actually press your lapels down, good ones will preserve the soft roll.

              Word from the tailor is send it back. Even if you press it, the lapels have a memory and it appears this particular item may have come out of the factory the way it is so to speak. Oh well, was worth a shot.
