I just received my suit yesterday, I have the same problem with excess fabric at both armpit / chest areas. My tailor would not touch it and said it couldnt be fixed. He said a different template would have to be used when the fabric is cut. The arm seam would be more tapered in towards the chest. He said the chest measurement was fine and altering it would not fix the problem. Otherwise everything else that was off the mark is fixable - shoulders too big, sleves too long, midsection too tapered giving the horrific thing going on with the chest. This worries me. I fit a 38S jacket like a dream, never have the chest altered. Sometimes I wear a 40S becuase if there is a large drop I have a bit bigger hips (and sometimes waist - given some weight fluctuation) than will fit off the rack pants, so I dont understand how horrible my jacket turned out. The vest was fine, and the pants were fine enough for minor alterations if needed. @Beetlejuice: I hope I don't ruin your love for your new suit, but man, did you see that chest funkiness goin on? The reason I pointed this out is because my re-make came with the exact same problem, on the exact same side of the suit! Was fine on the other side, just like yours. we probably got the same tailor, who did the same thing. It's like a ripple of the fabric which doesn't lay flat, and pinches into the right (left side of photo) armpit as well. I have opinions about your suit fit too, but everybody desires their own fit, so I'll leave that to you.
