so long story short, there was a sample sale this weekend and i picked up a wings + horns down vest for like 60 bucks. its really nice but it is a size too big. is it possible for a tailor to bring in the sides of a down vest like that? i know its probably pretty unlikely but oh well.

yea i know thats what tailors do, but i would imagine altering a down feather vest would pose as a difficult task. wanted to see if any peeps had experience with it.

They'll probably tell you no. There is a risk that they'll destroy the jacket, or it just won't look as neat as it was originally done.

Solution: Get fat.
That way it won't be too large anymore.

Well i got it for pretty cheap, but its way too huge now, like i wont wear it, so i dont really care if it doesn't look as neat, as long as it fits.

for a good tailor that wouldn't be too hard. Most wouldn't spend the time doing it unless they can and get paid well. but it is possible. The only real problem would be the down feather/insulation inside.

I actually didn't know tailors could alter anything, or atleast something like this.

Let us know how it turns out.
