Related question to the OP's, and would also like to hear some thoughts on pricing.
I bought a wardrobe of suits in my post-college days that I'm now hoping to resurrect, after a few years back in school. A couple of them still fit, a couple will have to be jettisoned (either here or on Ebay), and a couple might still be able to work with some modifications.
One is a canvassed two-button dual-vent Paul Stuart suit which still fits me pretty well in the shoulders (trousers as well), and it's a solid navy, so it should be a staple.
Maybe my eye has changed, or maybe it's fashion, but in putting it on now, the button stance seems low (almost at the waist), and the lapels a bit wide. Is it possible to move the button stance up, and how much would this cost? How about re-pressing the lapels to make them narrower, or would this require tailoring work?
I'd also had a shawl-collar unvented tux made up when visiting Hong Kong. (It being New Year's is why I thought about this now.) Here too the button stance seems low (at the waist), and the shoulders are positively epaulet-like in their squareness. Could a tailor modify these faults, and for how much?
