But I was under the impression that you can take in the waist on a coat? Is that a difficult task for a tailor? The Oxxford fits, but not like a good glove. Thoughts and comments welcome and appreciated. Thanks to all those who responded earlier
Taking the a jacket's waist is an easy alteration. About the only jacket alterations I won't try are shoulder width by any amount, any chest alteration other than _very_ small, and sleeve length when working buttonholes have been cut. Even the latter can be done from the shoulder, but it's expensive. Edit: My Oxxford suit is my favorite, by far, but most of their models don't fit me well. The Crest is the only model I'll wear.
