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!
