umm. calvin klein makes shirts that are for "layering" that are form fitting. Are we allowed to buy calvin klein here? or you can always go with man spanxx...
I'm 6'0 185 and I wear a 42, meaning my pit to pit is usually around 22 inches, length at least 30.5, and that barely covers my butt. my shoulders are 19" across. these suits need a couple inches, basically everywhere. you can tell the chest is tight by the way the lapels bow towards the button, rather than making a crisp V. your jacket should generally be long enough to cover your junk in front and your entire butt in back. And as stated above 1/4" to a full inch at...

can shoulder padding be removed successfully?

I dont think you can say your suit was anything approaching a success though. If MT has a return policy like indochino, definitely get rid of it. Theres nothing a tailor can do to fix that suit. PS - if you get an OTR suit altered by a competent tailor, there's no reason...
ugh. don't just facepalm me. what, specifically, is wrong? measurements are on me, and that's fine. I look awful, I guess. But for people thinking of buying from moderntailor, what needs to be fixed, construction-wise?
at the risk of being called a fatty again, here ae some pictures taken in sunlight, outside, from a decent angle. the contrast is ridiculous because my girlfriend's camera phone is crap, this one is pretty close to the actual look of the wool: I know my specific style choices (button stance, lapel width) may make this suit look really bad to most of you, but I don't think you can fault moderntailor for that, as they gave me exactly what I ordered,...
