hi soupnazi,   you'll mainly need to increase the outseam length and the rise of the pants. therefore, if you're wearing the pants an inch or so higher, you'll need to increase the outseam and rise by an inch too.   however, i'd recommend to wear tuxedo pants at the same location as your other pants. there's no fixed rule. go what you're comfortable with.   hope this helps.   j.
i think 16oz should be heavy enough. anything heavier would not seem to be practical.    hope this helps.   j,
hi fidelcashclow,   i had two overcoats made last winter which are still serving me very well. full canvas is very important!   yes high quality overcoats are indeed canvassed and shouldn't be fused (unless the fabric weight is extremely light, in which case fusing may be required).   it does go over the suit, but still needs to fit well and since it will be canvassed, the overcoat will conform to your body better than a fused suit.   also the lining and...

gaunt runner,   i think there are local tailors you might want to try in boston. the tailors will help measure you and get you something that fits correctly.   is that an option for you?   jason
pdxguy,   i think you might find this website helpful.,en_GB,pg.html   they explain how to tie a tie, and also what lengths it should be at. usually, above the belt buckle is the norm.   hope this helps.   j
pasha,   what was wrong with tai pan row? i was thinking of getting a suit made from them and had heard good things. is there something i need to be cautious about? something to advise them before making a suit? let me know what went wrong with yours?   thanks   jason
i saw an ad online and noticed they offered some unusual / funky shirt fabrics.   has anyone tried them out? anyone have any feedback on their quality of shirts? i did a search for this on the forum and couldn't find much info.   thanks   jason
Itgiawa,   I too looked around online for a shirt tailor and although some of the websites are very nice looking, it seems to me it would be more accurate going to an actual tailor to go over different style options, and having them measure myself and discuss the fit options I have available.   Hope this helps.   Jason
