Hello, new to the forum, and would like to get your advice on adjustments to suit pants.
I wear size 40R jackets. Usually a perfect fit. Unfortunately the pants that come with the suit are really way to small around the waist (usually 4 to 5 inches), and there isn't enough material in the back of the pants to make up for the difference (usually only 1 or 2" are available).
If I take some extra-material from the the bottom of the pants, i think technically a good tailor could add it to both sides of the waist seams to get my waist fit. But am worried that it might be very noticeable. I have never seen this in person.
Can anybody who has done this comment on the results and would you recommend it? I know an alternative is going bespoke, but was just wondering if the pants adjustments per above is a feasible way to go from a results/appearance perspective. Additionally can anyone recommend a very good tailor in the DC/MD/VA area?
Thanks very much!
