A quick question for you guys. A friend mentioned that he had picked up a few suits at great prices, and though some of them were not his size (with regards to the chest), he simply took them to the tailor's and got it taken care of. I was wondering about this. How much larger (I am a 38R) could one have the jacket, and still be able to take it to the tailor's? (I realize that wasn't very eloquent.) Or is buying a suit that is too big to have it tailored simply a mistake, and if so, why is that?
