Most of my suits are pretty crappy....hugo boss, Z Zegna, pretty much whatever i found in my size at saks on sale. So I stepped up my game and bought a charcoal Isaia suit...A thousand times better than what ive been wearing. Like going from Johnston & Murphy to Lobbs. Fit is great, but the problem is in the pants. Im a 32 waist, which is what these are tagged, but holy god i cant get em buttoned. Of all the pants Ive had tailored, ive never had to have the waist let out. My question is how difficult of a task is this? Id assume letting hte waist out should be a really simple task. I use 2 different tailors....one down the street from my office is good. pretty cheap, but good. And the other is a little farther away, but quite expensive. Twice as much. I dont mind paying if its necessary....if letting out the waist an inch or 2 is a tough job, Ill take it to him, but if not ill save the money and drivve time and go to the one close to me.....
