So I ended up keeping the charcoal suit I got on this buy (or a later one, I cant remember. Had a partially cut label which I can fetch later). 50R IT feels boxy, but that's because apparently with Canali I'm a 48R IT (5'9"-5'10" here too). Lesson learned. Added note: I've found a local department store (remaining unnamed) willing to tailor it. Perhaps you'll have similar luck. They tailored the pants and offered to tailor the jacket, so I'll probably take them up on it.
