They actually run longer than standard waistcoats. Should be fine for a Long. We actually plan on shortening them for the next round.
They also kind of run smaller. I wear 38R contemporary in suits but 38 cont in vest is incredibly tight, borderline unwearable. Is there any additional material to let out the vests?

I got my ethomas jackets in (navy hopsack and guncheck) and the guncheck fits quite snug in the waist, I’d say more than typical margins. Anyone else have this experience? Navy fits normal/great.

Could be a one off, and I’d still recommend getting your same size, waist is just very nipped.

You should have near 2" inside to let it out from the centre and sides.

Yep, it will be fine. My wife started keeping track of my tailoring expenditures recently and she wasn’t thrilled.
Find another tailor.. or another wife? :D
In all seriousness, shop around for (good and affordable) tailors. Wierdly the one in my neighborhood charges much more (and seems less experienced) that the one in the city center where I work.
