The bigger issue is your overarm measure (chest and arms measured together) in relation to your chest size is problematic. That is the cause of the pulling and stress lines at the base of where the sleeve is attached to the jacket. You need more cloth across the front chest but a larger armhole and sleeve for the jacket size of your chest.
Getting this correct is possible but you want to find a good fitter/tailor that understands how to fit you. If you find this knowledgeable person they probably know the best MTM program to work with. Someone like Jefferyd at Hart Schaffner Marx is the type of tailor you want to find. Maybe the HSM program would work for you.
I focused on the upper body issues because getting that right will make a good looking and comfortable jacket for you. Shaping the waist is easier than fitting your chest properly
Thank you for the kind words
Now MF and TP, do you know how well SS MTM program is because if I'm going MTM, I'd defnitely want the fully canvassed option.
I'd go to a better tailor, seen as you need significant changes to their standard cut. I guess SS could do it, but be prepared to really know how something should fit and tell them exactly what you want (not a bad thing to know anyway!). If you're not confident you can specify the exact changes like Despos just did I'd skip it. Of course it wouldn't hurt to drop by a store and talk to guys doing the measuring about the changes you need in order to see how knowledgable they are, i.e. see whether they bring up your chest, armholes and shoulders.
