Is Golden Needle cheaper than the various Oak St stores?

It feels like JCrew did some...

The bigger question is do you want to spend money at the tailor. It's definitely wearable, I just feel like for the price...
it looks grey to the eye. it was also $200 on eBay.
ok - http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=93715 - answers that question. is the problem just in the wrinkles along the top of the arm? would fixing the fullness of the sleeves do anything to solve that problem?

I feel like the shoulders actually fit fine, but the boxy sleeves give the false first-thought that you could go down a size. Personally, this would be a return. what is a sleeve pitch? is there no way to tailor the sleeves down?
you mean if it looks like something watercolored my body like a SI swimsuit model? yea, camera on the ipad is awful.
Yea it is one size smaller - JCrew seems to come pretty big. It does look a tad big, and you might be right about the posture, but I can't imagine getting a smaller size.
hadn't noticed that but you're right - especially around the forearm. thanks for the help.
Could still return it - what do you think? What work does it need? Bought a size smaller than I normally do. Keeping the vent uncut just in case I need to return. Suit is the Billy Reid for J Crew. Sorry for the awful quality of the pics.
