I just got my new Isaia suit from STP today. Of course I immediately had to open the box and play dress up. It is just stunning, and at $914 delivered, a good deal. A couple of questions: Â I got the sage glen plaid, thinking it would be a good summer suit. Â However, it seems a bit more earth toned than light-colored, and I was wondering if Sage Glen Plaid is more suitable for winter months? Also, it is just a smidge too big in the chest. Â I measured it and it is 46 inches in the chest, and my chest measures 42 inches. I probably would do better with a 45-inch chest to give me 3 inches of play rather than 4. Can I have the tailor take an inch in at the chest without messing up a $2,500 suit? Â And if i have him nip the chest, should he also correspondingly nip the waist by a like amount, so as to retain the proportion of the fit?
