Thanks a bunch for all the advice. I ended up getting (ordering) a J.Crew ludlow blazer yesterday. 40L fit me well in the shoulders and length, but I still want to alter it a bit for waist suppression. Is there any preferred way of doing this? Side seams vs back seam? It is a double vent if that matters.
