Does anyone think that's the problem? If so, is it fixable and is it an easy alteration? Or is the problem with the shoulder? Someone else said it might be a shoulder pad issue.

It's got the peak lapels I want at the right price point. It's not as slim as I'd like it to be, but their in-house tailor said he can take in the jacket and pants to make it fit more like the Hugo (red) line. There is however one problem. The...
