    Found a *great* tux with classic styling at a boot sale (flea market) last week. Would love to buy it, but the jacket is just a bit too tight on me. In general, how much can you get out of a suit coat - 1"? 2"?

    Thanks.

    From the Far Side of the World,

    It all depends on how much fabric is inside the seams. A tailor could tell you, or open the lining up and have a look.
