As Kimistry said, I think the ideal distance from end of the sleeve to the center of first button should be no less than 1.25 inches. I've pushed the boundaries to 1 inch on some of my jackets, but I wouldn't go any further as it already looks slightly off to my eye.
Shouldn't be too much of a shock because outlets suits and jackets are generally discounted at about 50% off of their original prices from what I noticed and throughout this last year there has been some consistent price increases on some suits, so it certainly makes sense.
I also noticed that...
I personally own four Hudsons and two Havanas including sport coats and they definitely fit differently. Like Blair said, the shoulder construction alone is a major difference. I think a lot of people really love the slightly pleated shoulder on the Hudson which is why they started to make some...
I frequently shop at both locations and I asked around before deciding to go with Gina at Soho. I think she is the most experienced and definitely has a lot of returning clients.

I agree with what Michael said, I think that if you're confident about how you like your fit and can communicate it clearly with them, then it shouldn't be an issue. I haven't done MTM yet, but when I constructed by DYOS suit I felt that they did an excellent job of helping me achieve the fit...
I'm looking to make some minor adjustments to the rise of my pants, but how do you guys decide on whether to adjust the front or rear rise of pants?
My latest trousers have a front rise of 10.25 inches and rear rise 15.25 inches
Is there a proportion or rule to follow?
If it needs to be shortened more than about 1.5 inches, I think I'd take your tailor's advice and not try to attempt it. It'll definitely ruin the construction of the jacket especially the way the sleeves and shoulder will fit.
I shortened a jacket once from the shoulder by about 1.5 inches and...
