Taking in waist on suit

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i'm wondering if it's possible to take in the waist area on a suit and if so, by how much? for example: this suit has a slim waist and lets out this suit straight all the way through and looks boxy can this alteration be done or is it simply a part of the cut of the suit? is there also proper terminology when asking the tailor for this? thanks.

You should be able to "take the waist in," no problems. (That's how my tailor always referred to it.) Of course, there is a limit to how much they can taper the waist. It depends on how the upper part of the jacket is cut, especially the angle of the armholes. You can only narrow the waist so far until the rest of the jacket starts to go all out of whack. I wouldn't say they'd be able to turn #2 into #1 without some major recutting, but they should be able to narrow the waist a little so it doesn't slip off of you.
