hey folks, was hoping I could get some feedback here. Sleeves definitely need to be shortened, pants shortened, etc. Had some positive weight gain(z) and now am properly a 42, had to find something last minute for a wedding. I know this is a bit dated with the lapels, but the material feels nice (linen blend) and in general I think the fit's not too bad. Should I be having the chest taken in slightly? I worry about looking a bit boxy. thanks!!

Hi, the general fit looks good. I would recommend to have the sleeves shortened a bit and the back taken in just a bit along the center seam to fall flat and straight, but then you should be good.
