I have a new OTR sports jacket that I really like, but I'm not digging the elbow patches. I'm not wild about patches to begin with, plus they'll be sitting in the wrong position once the sleeves are shortened, i.e. they'll be too close to my wrists. Anyway, I'm considering having my tailor remove them as part of the fitting, and was wondering if anyone here had done the same in the past and what the results were. It seems like there shouldn't be any trouble, really, I just thought I'd check before attempting this on a new jacket (it was inexpensive, at least). Thanks for any feedback. PS my tailor is quite competent, so I'll obviously be asking her opinion, but I'm interested to hear any Lounge anecdotes.
