Bespoke Suit Post Changes

So I've been venturing into my first Bespoke suit and have been very excited about the process. 8 weeks later I got the final result but I have to wait until I get home next week to inspect it. The tailor provided me with a video of the final results.

Overall I think I will be satisfied with it. Three piece single breasted navy suit. Single pleat, 2" cuffs, etc.

One of my concerns right now is that I noticed that one of my changes wasn't made where I asked - I requested 5 buttons for my waist coat where I initially said 4 when I met in person. Unfortunately i know that sort of mistake is hard to change so I'm thinking I either have to 1) get a new waistcoat made or 2) be satisfied with final result.

Frankly for my torso and height(6'1") it looks to be fine for my proportions and fits everything else honestly, but should I tell him next week that this isn't what I requested and could something be done about it? Also one minor thing is that I wanted a monogram in cursive and not print but not my biggest concern.

All in all I'm just concerned with some of the post suit changes and adjustments that can be made after the suit has been made including the proper etiquette and such. Hope that makes sense. Thanks!
