    Hello.
    This is my first post on this forum.
    I have recently received a Navy Harrington from Royale Filmwear.
    It’s in the smallest size (XS).
    I’m really pleased with it, it’s a great jacket but it’s a little long in the sleeves and wide in the shoulders for me. This is not unexpected - it seems to correspond to the advertised dimensions accurately.
    I’m thinking of asking a tailor to explore adjustments to the sleeves and shoulders.
    Can anyone with experience of getting changes made to these or similar jackets advise me please on what exactly to ask/tell the tailor to ensure that the fit is improved but without spoiling or changing the general appearance of the finish and details? Is it worth altering?
    Thank you!

    Thanks to everyone who replied to this - all the responses were incredibly helpful.
    In the end last week I took my Royale Filmwear Harrington to a local tailor and he volunteered that he could bring the shoulders in to suit my slimmer frame.
    I understood that it wouldn't be difficult to shorten the sleeves but agreed to the adjustment of the shoulders with trepidation.
    The jacket arrived today (it didn't take long) and I'm delighted with the result.
    I can't see any discernible change in the jacket's fantastic original finish or appearance but it now fits me even better!
    See what you make of it. I think this might not be the last time I pay a visit to this tailor!

    Looks like you found a good tailor. From those pictures, I can't see any puckering at the shoulders to show that work was done. Nice work!

    Great jacket, ain't it?

    My beige Medium arrived today and contrary to what i expected it was perfect in the shoulders. :D

    Overall... i love it! It pisses me off that my tailor is closed due to the lockdown and i can't adjust the sleeves immediately.

    Photos will have to wait then :)

    I got that email this morning whilst making my coffee. Copped a size medium before I sat down to drink said coffee. What a great bargain! Thanks Dan!!!!

    My size is gone, but signal boosting that this hobby can attract a lot of less-than-pleasant folks, but Dan is really tops for this kind of stuff. Very cool of him to offer this deal. Can't wait to see what he cooks up next.
