Thread Starter 
Is it possible for a suit, to take in the waist and make the shoulders more structured, and still retain correct body length/pocket size etc proportions?

Waist can be taken in ... but what do you mean by "make the shoulders more structured"?

Mmm I was quite a big confusing on that one. I mean to say make the armholes higher so that the suit has a more "V" shape to it.

No, that's not possible.

Thanks, I guess the only way is to nip the waist in.

for the arm hole you can try to reduce it at the armpit and slimming the sleeves for the slim look. even taking in 1" or so make whole lot of difference. This will also reduce the chest fit as well.

Sounds like you want to change the sihouette of the jacket which is inherent to the make of the jacket. The jacket is already defined by its cut. Shaping the waist will help, the shoulder is another matter.

Take the waist in. Have a camelshead custom cut to your chest and inserted. I am assuming your actual drop is 0 or a positive number. A tailor will know what to do for you. M8

V shape should be created if you have v shape torso IMO.
