What is considered "easy to fit"? YFYF made the comment several posts back that he is relatively easy to fit and therefore might have different results than someone who is harder to fit (or just needs less fittings). Does it boil down to easy to fit = slim; and harder to fit = not so slim?

If you actually want something classical and correct--something that works for someone who walks and is not a manequin--then his trou is too short and should be dismissed.

Instead of saying not too fitted and not too loose I hope this picture helps me convey what I want to my tailor. As far as the suit not being too remarkable I am not trying to make my suit stand...
