I'm a skinnier guy. Maybe it's the models I tried on, but it was very boxy along the waist. I couldn't see taking them in as much as they needed to without throwing off the balance.
As for 3/4 construction, maybe their definition is not the same as yours or mine. The lapels have a roll to them so their sewn in but the chest piece felt like it was fused to me using the old pinch test. For me, it wasn't even a case where it was hard to tell.
I would have kept the pieces but the surgery required probably would have run me as much as the suit and jacket so I returned them.
