My tailor alters from the shoulders, and does a terrific job. He's the guy who does alterations for the Jil Sander boutique avenue montaigne.
It doesn't come cheap, about 80euros, but it's well worth it.
I've actually lost about 2 inches off my waist and 12 lbs or so since getting married, just a bit over a year ago. Miraculously, have gotten stronger (chest still the same, but my drop is now closer to 9 or 10, from about 7-8 before). Same exercise schedule, but with more speedwork and burnout sets built in for more intense, but shorter, workouts, (speedwork burns an incredible amount of fat, and burnout sets build a lot of strength). Fewer pizza, kebab, and take out Pasta days (actually, only about once a week now, as opposed to 6 or more). I read in the BBC that it is actually quite common for men to lose weight and women gain after marriage.
