    Seeking the wisdom of the elders

    Need to ask a question about jackets-especially the taper from shoulder to waist. Are there jackets designed with an extreme taper(44 chest means a 54 jacket that tapers to a 36 waist). Are the jackets that advertise as "full stretch" really that stretchy? Or is it advisable to have the jacket tailored to make it fit snugger for competition? I have heard of some fencers that actually tailor everything on the jacket, even the sleeves, for a closer fit. I really don't want to enter my first tournament looking like some big white Christmas bell!
    The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity...for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing. ----Unknown

    Christmas bell

    be a Christmas bell for a few tournaments and watch what the elite fencers wear. You can have everything taylored (I'm assuming you fence epee) and look really cool. Or just fence. Have a good time.
