    I have a hard time getting flat front trousers that fit right. I find the Italian size 52 is too snug and 54 is too big. My question, is it better to buy down and have my tailor open the trousers up, or is it better to buy up and have the tailor take them in?

    I always prefer to get the larger size.

    You and I must be the same size. I buy 54s and have them taken in.
    Give yourself some room to grow.
