Thank you all for the input so far! Actually, my tailor contacted me today, and wrote that he would like to make the chest and waist smaller if I have no oppositions after test driving the suit for a few days. He supposedly left the chest area a little roomier because I complained about tightness in the chest of my Indochino suit (which is really on the tight side). He also wrote that he reconsidered the shoulders, and would like to try some careful...

Thank you for the comments, and looking forward to hearing more. @Maccimus: good call on the quarters, I will opt for more open quarters next time. I just realized that I forgot to include the compulsory 'learning to fly' action shots!! So here they are:
Hello, This is my first attempt at bespoke suiting... The suit was made with a single basted fitting. The fabric is VBC Super 110s. Cost was around 1350 USD.
