This store bought suit was transformed into a custom suit. Alterations were made to the arm and leg length, the waist of the coat was taken in and the width of the pants were taken in for a more form fitted look.
Military uniforms are issued in an assembly line fashion and the fit is boxy to allow for a greater range of body sizes. This Airman wanted one of his uniforms to look sharp and tailored. The pant legs and coat sleeves were hemmed, the waist of the coat and dress shirt were both taken in, and the sleeves of the dress shirt were also taken in to provide a fit that looks as if the uniform was made to his specifications.
The following picture is an example of men’s cuffed pants.
