    Apologies if this info is floating around, but an initial search didn’t uncover anything obvious.

    I’m between sizes on the Vanson Commando (LeftField and ButterScotch Tri-lab) and am toying with the idea of having modifications made to the fit (on a new jacket order, by Vanson during the production process).

    I’ve seen mentions of custom modifications. I’m curious to hear how that process went: how much extra cost did it incur, was it a blanket cost or did they charge per mod (I.E. X price to update sleeve length, another X to tweak the chest width).

    I’ve emailed Vanson, but no response yet. In the meantime, I figured there was a wealth of insight here to be mined :)

    Thanks!

    Oh I’m talking about having Vanson modify the fit on a brand new order, not a tailor altering an existing jacket.

    ah yeah, that's good. I think Vanson charges $100 or $150 for a pattern change if I'm not mistaken. A few people on here have had good experience with that. Hopefully they chime in. Not sure what the wait times are at Vanson these days though.

    I would bet that wait times are really long today. I feel like it is worth it though.

    I’m ok with a wait, this jacket is so good. I’ll hold out and pay up for it to fit me right.

    That price seems totally reasonable for a pattern change, which is likely what I’ll go for. Such a sweet jacket. I’m tall and skinny, so the reality is that off the rack is just not gonna do the job effectively for me.
