Need to have a couple pairs of dress pants let out an inch or so in the waist. How skilled of tailor is needed for this job? Just moved to the Upper West Side in NYC and don't know if the ones near me are any good yet. Is this a job that can be easily botched?

I am getting a very similar suit made by Gordon Yao next month but am using Minnis 0328 (a woolen flannel) also sourced from AndrewRogers.
AC does a sample shirt in HK before making the shirts you order.
Thanks for the input. I'm going to go ahead with my idea and have a coat very similar to the first made.

Thanks for the input so far. And I want to say the coat might be a RLPL but am not entirely sure. I just saved it to my desktop recently when searching for information about overcoats and didn't pay much attention to who actually made it.
I was hoping to get some input on what would be a great first overcoat (or really to confirm my decision). The primary purpose will be winter coat for NYC and I will be a mid 20's associate at a law firm. The coat is going to be in navy (not too dark though a really nice color of blue, JJ Minnis Melton 100% Wool). And I most likely will only be able to get one overcoat this winter but plan to supplement it next year with a bespoke camel hair polo coat. Hopefully, these...
I am going to get a Navy double breasted over coat made and was wondering as to the best size for the buttons on front. RJ Weldon is the only place that I seem to be able to locate them so am limited to their sizes. The two that I am in between are 40l or 45l. Which one would be appropriate? I've attached a picture that I might try to model the overcoat after.
Wondering if anybody has had good experience with a drycleaner on the UWS? Mainly looking for one that does a nice job with dress shirts. Thanks.
