Looks pretty good for off the rack. Vent width looks too narrow to cover your back side. Maybe the CB seam was adjusted for suppression because it looks like the vents are under tension from a short back balance. Probably both things combine. Pressing will help but may not totally do the job.
This is really not a process that should be done in this manner (by email and mail) BUT to me, the balance of the jacket is off slightly in that it's a little long in the back. You need a sway back/forward hips adjustment as well. Maybe even a little more slope to your shoulders. Don't know if the MTM suit is based off the cut of the trial suit or not. The button stance is also personal. shouldn't necessarily be placed at the most narrow part of the torso. It looks ok...
 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...
