No, he is letting the sleevs up a bit and shaping the chest slightly as the fabric creases awkwardly in the chest. Nothing major like .25 inches or something. The waist I am keeping as is unless it looks odd. I don't want to make it any tighter in the waist due to the quarters and the fact I want it to breathe a bit as it is linen and fairly lightweight.
Thanks for the comment
