Wow, talk about a nightmare story... I hope these weren't all new suits. If they are, why would you buy 5 suits when you're admittedly new to suiting. Then drop another $700 on alterations. Heck, if you posted a pic first people might have been able to tell if the suit was even the right size to begin with. If they're old suits, just have one altered to make what you're attempting is even going to work out. If this tailor is great, mention the name and place. I'm...

The authentic fit actually has the narrower thighs but identical rise. The Gap website outlines the details of each fit. edit: Oops you're right. i was thinking of Std, not Straight. It goes Skinny, Straight, Boot, Authentic, Standard in order of general slimmitude.

+1 on what brand the OP is wearing. I always found my fruit of the loom, hanes, and cheapo T's like had those billowy sleeves. Sizing down just made the shoulders not fit and length too short. T's always seemed like something it was hard to pay up for but I bit the bullet and bought a pack of Calvin Kleins at TJ Maxx (not exactly going high end, but a certainly step up from a generic 5-pak from Walmart) and voila, problem solved. Isn't the answer almost the same for...
I second Japadog... get the edamame bratwurst!
^ lazy... I just went with a jacket and in the cheapest fabric. Obviously the fabric is nothing to write home about. The stitchwork is indeed a bit sloppy although if you find the work of their shirting acceptable then you know what to expect. They did get all the measurements spot on with what was given. As usual their customer service is pretty good. If you're looking for something trendy, they'll often double-check the measurements with you as a precaution. ...
I do love lobbing a good hobo insult. "I say, dear boy, did you barter those trousers from a hobo?!"
