 With the Attolini, opening the quarters would help it look a little less boxy at first glance but it's more of a visual illusion. The jackets need more shaping done to the front of the jacket as opposed to the back to relieve the boxy look. It could be less than buying RTW new especially if you're buying KITON or Zegna, but make sure you have a good tailor. All of these jackets are likely full canvas and in order to put shape into the front of the garment, there's a...
First things first is correcting the balance of the jacket from side to side. Your right side is low so you can see the jacket collapsing on that side. A pad in the shoulder would level things out. Don't need to shorten the sleeves as that fix would also pick up the right sleeve.Next is the trousers. The balance is off there, too. Need to see how loose the seat is and see if reshaping the seat and straightening the curve/hollowing the curve would be acceptable. Then...
The backside of the pants probably require a reshaping of the seat and possibly lowering the back waistband to help with the wrinkles. It's an issue caused by forward hips and flat seat.
 No. The CB seam does not directly affect the chest fit. Letting it out would only elongate the back balance some and throw extra fullness over the blades.
Depending on What is actually causing it would determine if its fixable but its not a small fix.
Well, again, your pictures are going to be distorted because with the arm forward holding the cellphone you're inducing movement into the jacket which doesn't just affect that one side, but potentially the whole garment.   So, I really can't tell. Even the lapel popping visible from the side can happen by the way you're holding the phone. When this thread was started, the mod didn't post picture taking guidelines to frustrate the people who would inevitably post their...
 1. No one can tell because the pictures aren't good. 2. No seam allowance available to make the chest bigger. Can't do it.
It is. Basically the waistband is removed from back to front all the way to the fly. The extra allowance at the back seam (if there is any) is let out and transferred to the front in the form of said darts.. The waistband is replaced. It's a tricky operation and isn't for everyone. Letting out the fullness in the back will straighten the seat curve and if you have a more curved/prominent seat, will create fit problems there. With pleated trousers, you can have the pleats...
 If you ever get trousers made, ask for a single pleat with a shallower depth or darted fronts. Does the same job of placing comfortable fullness over that area but can allow you to maintain a still sleek look.
  All depends on the tailor and what they ultimately decide to do. Most of what the pants need might be priced consistently from tailor to tailor but the jacket is another story. Is it worth altering? Well, that's a question only you can answer. There's a lot of work there, for sure. Alterations should always be kept to a relative minimum if possible. Anyway, you say you're from south central PA? I'm up in the lehigh valley and have a few clients in your area. My guess is...
