    common sales tactic - they want to move merchandise.

    never buy something that isn't reasonably close to fitting you before a tailoring... never buy something that isn't your size because your size isn't available - if you're buying something that isn't you regular size because it happens to fit better - different story

    Did they have a 56 L and did you try it on?

    Is it the same brand as the other 56Ls you usually wear?

    I need to go up a size in Hickey Freeman vs Hart Schaffner for example.

    The key is what fits best in the shoulders, you can alter the rest.

    Take it back and go to another store and get your correct size. Don't let salesmen pressure you.
