Edit 8/13/2011: Many thanks to everyone for their advice. I think the colors and fit turned out really well. We don't have official photos yet, but I figured some might be interested to see how it turned out. Especially those searching for beach wedding colors. Wedding #1 Wedding #2
So I brought my first suit (purchased off the rack from Banana Republic) to the tailor today, and was told that there weren't any adjustments needed at all.
The tailor was voted best in Dallas by D Magazine, and his online reviews are all great... so I can only assume that he knows what he's talking about. But just in case, I thought I'd get a few opinions here as well. Here it is:
It's hard to explain "how it feels" because I don't ever wear suits, so I'm not sure how it's suppose to feel. It feels snug, as I expect a suit should.
But by looking at the photos, it seems that maybe the waist should come in just a bit, and the sleeves need to come up about half an inch or so to show part of the shirt cuffs (or is that no longer considered a "rule"?).
It should also be noted that this has a double-vented back that hasn't been opened yet.
