About the size: 6ft tall, non-muscular body, weight's around 235lbs. I have a few really basic questions, if you don't mind. tl;dr a newb chubby is having suits tailored in HK Is WW Chan a newb-friendly place? How bad of an idea is a 2-button jacket wih peaked lapels for a man of my size? Which arm hole length is ideal for me? Also, are fabrics with even a dim stripe off-limits? And finally, could a double-breasted jacket actually work?
