    Hello everybody,

    I'm looking for some advice. I just purchased this Brooks Brothers sport coat during their recent 40% off sale. It's a size 44R. I'm wondering how is the fit currently. If there are issues, do you think a tailor can correct them? If not, I guess returns are still an option for a bit.

    Thank you for your time.

    The boxiness can be reduced and the sleeves shortened, but it's a size too big in the shoulders and (not correctable) too short. Return. Unfortunately, it looks like a set of measurements that few off-the-rack suits can be made to fit well.

    I see how the shoulders are divoting, that makes sense. I'm surprised to hear that the jacket is too short, I thought I'd hit the mark with curl of hand and covering rear, but perhaps my butt is showing too much. Thanks for taking a look.
