Is there a general rule regarding how much space there should be between your stomach and the closed button of your suit jacket when you pull it away from your body? I'm assuming this goes to the waist suppression of the jacket. I just got my Oxxford suit tailored and it's about 4-5 inches away (I can fit my hand in between), and I'm wondering if I should have the sides taken in even more for a sleeker fit. Would being able to slip 3-4 fingers in between your closed button and your body be too tight and movement limiting? I don't want to go overboard here.
