I'll consult a tailor I guess.  I prefer the notch lapels (I imagine its not what most here like, but its what I prefer).  The shoes are not the ones I would wear with this, just what was out at the time.  Shirt and tie would be different as well. Thanks.
Wow, that bad huh? Do you recommend I get a different 40R (that will be just a bit large like this one) or a 38R that will be too small in the shoulders/chest?
  Thanks for the feedback.  As far as style goes, this is what I prefer and its a completely subjective thing.  I plan to wear a skinny black tie, not a bow-tie, but again, thats just my preference.  Regarding the shoulders, I am a bit torn because every 38R I've tried is just too narrow in the shoulders and chest (I am a slim build, but I work out and have somewhat broad shoulders).  40R is always pretty close, maybe just a hair too big, and I think this is the case...

Its a side vented model and I will need a little side suppression, sleeves shortened just a bit, and pants hemmed (pics in my profile). Who can I trust to do this work? Its my wedding so I need it to be done right. A lot of people on this forum recommend centofanti, but I have read that he passed...
Hey, I've been reading this forum for a while and trying to learn as much as I can. Its been extremely helpful.  I now need some advice and recommendations.    I am getting married in a few months and decided to buy a tuxedo instead of renting.  I am a slim, athletic build, with relatively wide shoulders (5' 10"  / 165lb)  I went out to try on a bunch of different tuxedos and liked the hugo boss ones best.  I know this forum generally thinks they are not so great,...
