Roger N wrote:Yep, we have discussed this problem and I have actually sent him a few images of the guards that require you to reach up with your arms, like Ochs and Zornhut. It is problematic, but my suggestion is to not add extra padding on the insides of the upper arms, and only on the outsides and the whole lower arms. And with "loose" and slightly thinner, puncture-proof fabric in the arm pit, this problem may be lessened.
Yes, exactly!From what I understand, the basic design of Grand Assiette means that you make the armpit very snug and tight and move the seam closer to the neck, and that this means that arm movement will not pull the fabric.
And yes as well.....I totally see the problem.The only problem I see here, is that it requires custom tailoring and simply cannot be done with off the rack jackets. So although it is a good design, I don't really see how it would be practical for the manufacturer.
Roger N wrote:Well, your misreading me a little. Moving the seam does not require custom tailoring in that sense, but I do not believe it changes the articulation that much in itself, especially if the padding is thicker there. It is the combination with a tight fitting arm pit that gives better articulation and that requires custom tailoring.
