I've had good success with M Kenny and My Tailor. It's definitely not as finessed as some other MTM, but there's not many options in DC. I have used Field English Custom Tailor. The prices were nearly double that of My Tailor for Thomas Mason Silver fabrics and the results only better for the collar and shoulder slope adjustment. The sleeves were a tad too short. Mr. Field has the shirts made at Geneva in NY. Both fit well through the body and arm volume.
What about a light weight option in a linen/cotton blend - tobacco brown?
I had an issue with a pair of Howard Younts before I switched to EP. The HY were always tight in the seat and I could feel it when I sat down. It's probably just the cut and how they fit on you. Have you tried different styles with different cuts? Maybe switch from Walt to Rudy.

Very cool. I really like the shape of those chukkas and the color looks great.
I'm a 5'7" early forties guy. I buy a lot of casual clothes from Epaulet, one of the sponsors of a thread on this site. Their rivet chinos are nicely cut and somewhat expensive, but not outrageously so. Not too skinny, but up to date. I highly recommend having all pants tailored. Your dry cleaner can probably hem pants - maybe not jeans, for that I'd find a real alterations tailor. I have my jeans hemmed too, because a 34 inseam pants on my 28.5" inseam legs just...
Wow. Just scored the Japanese Dark Indigo hoodie zip up sweatshirt. Just popped up in the sale section after not being on the site for a long time. Been hemming and hawing about adding a navy hoodie to my grey, but this one is so much more unique. Very pleased. Added my first loop wheel t-shirt to get over $50 for free shipping. I know buying one is a slippery slope and it means I'll order more soon. Haven't even gotten my order from last Friday evening. Should...
Funny thing is I love Hober's keepers, but never use a keeper. I could order them without, but I really like the craft involved in the Hober keepers. They look so good even though nobody will ever see them. I prefer to let my backside fly free. (The backside of my tie that is.)
