The last time I took a jacket in, Hector's suggestions ultimately resulted in a completely new article of clothing.  He keeps pretty up-to-date on modern styles RE: the house cut.  Being 18, I can't give you any more information than what I've heard from my tailoring, and my parents/their friends' experiences with bespoke clothing.  I know that he offers Brioni, Loro Piana, Zegna, and some of the Savile Row house fabrics for shirting and suiting.  
Hector's tailoring in Rockville.  He's extremely talented-- the only tailor in the area that my mother will trust for reweaving-- and usually very timely.  
Much appreciated!  Next time I visit my dad, I'll give it a listen!  Hahaha, thanks!  As a jew who went to a new england prep school, I've always kept it on the down low ;)

I think he's nailed the fit.  I'm with you on the button stance and lapels, however.
I've found myself going on the Suitsupply website more and more frequently.  I definitely like the Napoli fit for a traditional Italian vibe, and I think that the Washington and Washington half do a wonderful mix of English dandy and business.  You can't go wrong with any of them. 
A word of advice from a fellow young'n: super-skinny lapels and ties may be popular with the GQ crowd, but I urge you to think twice about a more traditional width.  My first real suits were all Calvin Klein, two notch and two peak lapels, which aren't super skinny, but are definitely narrow.  My father, a Brioni power-suit guy, derided my choices, but I went ahead anyways.  All four suits were slim-fit, but the family tailor still did a few hundred dollars worth of...
