Ugh, this is killing me, but....I just can't wear 40 reg anymore, and the waists of the trousers aren't given to much more alteration. Sooooo....here goes (email me for scans of the cloths):

For Sale:

40 Reg, 32 waist trouser, about 30" inseam. Glen Plaid, D'avenza SB 2 button suit. Hand Tailored, super condition; one of my "Bond" lookin suits, double vents. Strictly black and white glen plaid pattern, spring weight.

40 Reg, 32 waist trouser, about 31" inseam. Dunhill custom DB 6 on 2, navy with pronounced silver pinstripe (more like a "rope stripe"). Double vented, holland and sherry cloth in medium weight. Literally wore it twice; once in chicago, once in manhattan.

this one, I'm not sure about yet; yellow Brioni 2 button SB sportcoat with sky blue windowpane, double vents. I think i still have the $2795 price tag, 42 Reg. It's such a great cut and fit, but...I bought it on sale, wore it once, and feel it really is too fashionable for my personal style.

also not quite sure about this one yet, but Brioni SB medium blue/ herringbone weave med weight suit, 32" waist trousers, about 31-32" inseam. Awesome shoulders, cut, fit. I MIGHT be able to salvage the waist on the trouser and expand a little bit, I really love this suit.

Ugh, this is killing me.

Is it possible to buy a suit like this, and have it recut into a smaller size? Because I hear of great deals all the time, only in suits 4 sizes too large (I think I'm closest to a 36.)

I think you'd be running a risk of destroying a suit; I've always heard that the main things that must fit are the shoulders, chest; everything else can be altered in some way or another.
