I would use Carlos at Oxxford. He did the same alterations on several of my jackets. One of the SA's from Wilkes Bashfird took his Kiton and Brioni suits there to be recut after he lost 30 lbs. I was so impressed by the work that I began using Carlos. He isn't cheap and don't expect rush service. But if you are specific about what you want, you should get positive results.

This is not for travel jackets mixed with jeans. This is when you want a look of formality and authority. This will probably be dark navy. - Classic sport coats, always cover your rear. -Fashionable, travel and casual jackets- shorter looks best and looks "right". These will always have patch...
Very nice assortment. On the pique long sleeve shirt how is the fit? I wear a 54 in a Ring Jacket and a 16/35 shirt. What size is the size of the collar on the XL?
