    Wait, you smell that?
    I understand that various models of oxxford suits have different degrees of waist suppression. Can this typically be resolved by going to a good tailor to take in the sides as needed? If I'm buying a suit on e-bay and can't be as picky as to the exact model/style of the suit, can I buy one that's boxy or not and just have it taken in to my desired taste of a fitted body?

    Looks like a great suit! So, if you like the color, it fits, etc. then, by all means, go for it. You can't go wrong with Oxxford.

    Yes you can. All suits can be taken in at the coat's side seams and, if needed, at the back seam as well. I understand that most coats can be let out, too, but probably not a whole lot.
