What are your thoughts on the hole (first button from the top)? Easily fixed, or not worth the trouble?
I have an oppurtunity to buy an Belvest suit at a great price, its second hand and i have a few questions about the fit. Im wondering if the shoulders are too wide, what do you guys think? The arms also are too short and need to be lenghtended and it has to be taken in over the shoulderblades.
Thank you for your help!

Could really use some advice on optimizing my fit. I am sending this shirt and chino out for replication with some modifications. The areas I'm not happy with are highlighted, mainly arms front and back. Also, my biggest gripe, the back (particularly lower back).
The pants, need to be longer and bigger lower leg openings, my biggest area of concern is the seat.
My plan of attack:
Shirt: adjust for sloping shoulders (not accounted for in pics below). Decrease back waist by 1.0''
Pants: besides increase inseam and leg openings I have no idea what to do about the seat. It feel like the back rise might be too much, but I fear that might induce the wedge...
Any and all thoughts are welcomed and MUCH appreciated.

Would very much like some suggestions with a jacket.
I recently tried a PRL jacket in 40R/50R (pics). Which I thought was a little too short, looked good with jeans but not with chinos.
Anyway, PRL released the (as far as I can see) same jacket but with a different name, and the ability to order it in Long (yay!).
So, judging by these pictures and the measurements of the jacket in the pictures, and the measurements of the long version, would you please estimate if the Long jacket would fit well? (be long enough and so on), I do not necessarily require the jacket to fulfill all classic fit requirements (such as overall length of jacket to reach the knuckle and so on), whats important is just that it will look good.
This post will be quite long, but I would really really appreciate if someone (preferably more than one) would do their best to give some suggestions on this.
Jacket in 40R/50R:
With jeans and oxford shirt:
Measurements of the jacket in the pics (measured like the drawing below):
A Sleeve: 17.3"
B Chest around: 40.9" (~20.5")
C Waist around: 37.8" (~19")
D Length: 29.1"
E Shoulders: 18.5"
The New PRL jacket in Long have the following measurements (the sleeve is obviously not measured the exact same way):
So, do you believe the new version in Long will work? If so what size? I thought that maybe I could take the 42 Long and take in a little on the waist, to gain as much length on the jacket as possible?
So basically what size should I take and how will it look and fit?
Terribly sorry for the long post. My biggest thanks to the ones who take their time to help me out!
it would be terrific if someone could critique my shirt I received from Proper Cloth.
Here are my thoughts on it:
Thanks a lot for any feedback!
I recently purchased two pairs of Howard Yount pants: one of the Italian fit (grey flannel) and one of the American fit (brown). What is Styleforum's opinions on these fits? Both are unhemmed now, yet pinned for the photos.
My worries are that the Italian fit are too tight (pocket flare, possibly can see pocket lining). However, I wonder if the American fit pants are too loose (baggy around the thigh, insufficient taper to the leg opening). I know I need to have the waist taken in on that pair and the seat cleaned up. I am leaning towards the American fit pants since they are more easily alterable (taking in vs. letting out) and my larger upper half seems to fit a more conservative pant style. What are others' thoughts?
I have a question for any tailors.
I regularly have my dress pants tapered down the leg. My tailor will typically take most of the fabric in through the outseam seam. He has stated that he can only do so much before the pressed seam becomes off-center.
I've heard that taking in the legs is typically done primarily through the outseam by other tailors as well. My question is, why do tailors do this? why not take it in equally from both inseam and outseam?
