That took me by surprise because he doesn’t say that very often about my clothes. He suggested “why don’t you bring it to your tailor and see what she can do?”. I have never had a jacket altered before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was thinking if it costs too much money, I am just going to return it. My tailor was so kind and she only charged me $30 for her work.
I won't go into too much detail about this trench because small sizes are already sold out online (it is an online exclusive). I was so anxious to see the end result. A week later, I picked up my jacket and couldn’t be happier. She gave the jacket a bit more shape by slimming down the entire back of the jacket.

I love everything about this jacket. It doesn’t have a typical “trench” style which I like. However, it’s still a classic piece that can be worn for years and never goes out of style. The material is thick and heavy. I undoubtedly can wear this jacket for at least another month before changing to my heavy wool jacket. The fit is perfect post alterations. My only criticism - it's cotton, so it wrinkles easily. Nonetheless, a quick hot steam will certainly fix the problem =)
I told you it's so easy to create a color-block look with this skirt =)
