So I have a brooks brothers 3 button blazer that I have had for a while now, and unfortunately I have gotten bigger, even when I bought it they tailored it on the snug side but I figured that was normal since I didn't know much about fitted clothing...

I was wondering is it possible to have the jacket let out, if so what do they do? would brooks do this or am I better off finding someone else? or is my best bet to lay off the hamburgers and beer for a while? FWIW the jacket is tight in the mid section and while I can button it, it just isn't comfortable.

thanks

Yes, it can be altered. But there will be no hope for great style letting it out (the trend is taking it in).

Lay off the hamburgers and beer for a while? No: Start living, play Golf.
