All those who tuck bottom lip first?
All those who tuck upper lip first?
I can't say I'm hard and fast either way. Does it matter?

i usually do the upper lip first,, under the nose so i can aling my muzzle,,,,and at my age,, "hard and fast" does not come into play,,,,,,,,,,jim
But if you logically think about it, if you tuck the lower lip first, than the upper lip skin should help lock the lower lip in place. I will try it lower lip first today!
I do it top first. The main reasons are, you can align the muzzle and hair patterns easier, and once you get the top lip tucked, it is not likely to move once you tuck in the bottom because the whole head is attached to the top lip. If you were to tuck the bottom first, when tucking the top, you could easily bump the bottom out of alignment. That is just my opinion though.
