    Tailoring lapels?

    Does anyone have any experience with having the lapels of a blazer or suit jacket tailored? Can it even be done?

    I ask because I really want to buy this blazer from Banana Republic -- reviewed favorably by Joe here -- but I'm not crazy at all about the design of the lapel. It would be fine if I only wanted to wear it casually or in a professor's lounge somewhere, but I'd prefer to wear it to work in the late fall and winter time.

    Would it be expecting too much to ask my tailor to convert that button tab on the left side of the lapel into something more normal?


    Could try...but you're probably overthinking this. It is a casual fabric, and the tab blends in well with it.
