I have a constant conundrum when buying suits. I'm a 40S jacket because but really only need to 40 to fit around my backside. The shoulders always look just a little more Frankenstein-ian than I'd like. If I size down to a 38S the shoulders and armpits fit perfectly for a very nice tailored look. However, the jacket pulls a little when buttoned. On either I always need to get the sleeves shortened.
So, my question to you all is do I go with the 38S and have it let out a bit seeing as the shoulders fit nicely? I've heard that sometimes when you let jackets out there's a seam that ends up showing. Or, do I get the 40S and have a tailor work some magic to get the shoulders to fit better?
Thank you for the advice.
