    Hi folks,
    I recently nabbed a killer deal on a NWT Isaia blue blazer, I'm a size 38 the blazer I bought is a size 40. It's actually smaller in every area except the chest than my size 38 Isaias. The jacket has not had the buttons attached to the sleeve (which I knew) but after seeing that the chest was about 1.5in bigger than mentioned in the listing my question is this. Do I pay $200-300 to a taylor to have functional sleeve buttons added and taylor the jacket down to my size? Or do I flip it and make a few hundred dollars and write it off as a loss?

    Take it to a tailor you trust and ask for their opinion.
