Did you contact Filson directly? They might have some advice. Oil stains on leather can be removed by rubbing some baby powder into the stain to absorb the oil. If the stains are on twaxed canvas, you can sometimes scrape off the discolored wax, then rewax the damaged spot.
A difficult choice. I just took the Camoshita SC to my tailor, who loved the cloth and the color. Wool corduroy is very cool.
Congrats on the engagement, LD.
Did you check No Man Walks Alone, Kent Wang, or one of the various SF vendors?
I'd say 1-2" is the max for taking in the waist. Rotas just don't fit everyone.
I second Shirt Maven's comments.
Most men look great in a well-tailored traditional tux. Why screw it up?
Make a few phone calls. There are usually charitable groups who collect business clothes only and distribute them to folks in need.
Presumably a good tailor learns a lot by looking at the shape of your actual garment
