With advice from an SFer who showed me a few trusted ebay sellers, I picked up a bespoke double-breasted (made for someone else) that looks to be a close fit. Got it in the mail yesterday and went straight to the alterations tailor (also vouched for by SFers and Will from ASW).
I expected to move the sleeves up from the shoulder and hem the pants, but decided on doing more after looking at it in the mirror with the tailor. Taking approximately an inch off the bottom of the jacket (I know, I know, I'm a little scared, I can't lie!), bringing in the waist, and moving the button stance slightly to have the outer lapel lay more flat against chest.
I know this might sound like a huge overhaul, but I'm thinking (and hoping) it's going to be worth it. Here's a shot of the suit from the ebay pic. I didn't take any pics of the suit in person, but can't wait to update with a few pics of the end result. Thanks SF....
I found a nice looking DB sport coat but the outside lapel was sticking out too much. Can this be fixed by moving the button(s)? Other wise the jacket fit pretty good.post #1073 of 22111/16/13 at 8:47pmpost #1074 of 22111/17/13 at 2:55ampost #1075 of 22111/17/13 at 5:21ampost #1076 of 22111/17/13 at 5:23ampost #1077 of 22111/17/13 at 5:39ampost #1078 of 22111/17/13 at 6:34ampost #1079 of 22111/17/13 at 9:19am
