I'm a big RTW person, but I've come across a problem: I have a very odd (feminine?) body-shape and I can never find a suit that accents my body type well. Jackets are consistenty too wide around my waist, and they are also often too baggy around my shoulders, underarms and wrists. This has been a problem ever since I became interested in dressing up more. I have very small wrists, a very defined waist line and very narrow shoulders. I THOUGHT I wore a 36R, but most of the time that won't fit me correctly. What would be the difference between a 36R and a 36S? Sorry to ask such "newbie" questions, but I AM new to the world of suit-wearing. From what I understand, the "S" means short, and I'm not short, I'm a little over 6-foot. If "S" means small, well that would be good news for me. I am looking into a wool/silk black Hedi Slimane suit, but I don't want to invest in something that doesn't fit as correctly as it could. What kind of services could a tailor do to help me cure this problem? Thank you for reading, and thanks in advance for responses.
