Quick question. I lost about 25lbs and now some of my sports coats are now too big. Was a 44r and am now a 42r. Is it possible for a tailor to bring in a jacket by 1 to 2 inches in the sides and if so, is it usually costly? Yes, so long as they still fit you in the shoulders. But this will be costly, so if the suit's cheap, it might not be worth it to you.
