Yes you are correct, my concern is that there is a slight pulling on the back of the shoulders due to it being a little loose around the middle. The length of the jacket is fine, as is the sleeve length and width across the shoulders. Basically, the person seems to have almost the same body structure but to have a few more pounds around that waist, I would say they were around a half an inch to an inch wider? I’m no expert in this area though but think it is close enough...
The tailor is Davis and Son, I think I will give them a call as HansderHund suggested. However, I do see that the form is not great as it could seem like I want their services on the cheap. I like to think that is not the case as my motivation here is to re-use a very beautiful and well designed morning coat which few tailors, given the complexity, can alter without ruining  \

Hello,   I'm a new member based in London. I've read this site for some time and have now joined as I have a few questions on men's clothes.   I am a strong believer in vintage clothes and shoes, not only because the style is great but because it is a way to re-use items rather than sending them to the landfill. This does not stop me from buying new things such as work shirts and shoes as vintage like everything else is best in moderation.    Kind regards,
