Wedding in 2 Weeks - Need Help with Custom Suit

I had this suit made at Hong Kong Tailors in Birmingham, Alabama. My major complaints are:

  • Wrinkling at upper right chest near shoulder/armpit
  • Flaring at the hips where the jacket doesn't drape over my body
  • Right sleeve needs lengthened

I spoke with Rahm (the owner) and he said there wasn't anything that could be done. He claims that my high arm hole request is causing the wrinkling at the chest and because my hips (butt) are 10" larger than my waist it causes the jacket to flare out to the sides. I don't believe this is correct, but need your advice. Interestingly I noticed that if I shrug my right shoulder up, the chest wrinkle goes away. Rahm did say I had one shoulder higher than the other. Please post your suggestions and how you would go about resolving them.

I have two weeks until my wedding and need this fixed ASAP.

!. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

2.Your tailor's response is idiotic. The main reason to get MTM or Bespoke
is fit. Hong Kong Tailors in Brimingham Alabama sounds like a front
for a sweat shop in Asia.

3. Go to the best Mens Shop in your area and ask them to recommend their
outside alterations tailor- or their own tailor, if they permit him/her to take on
ouside business and have them look at it. If the corrections are done to your
satisfaction, bill Hong Kong Tailors. If they don't pay, threaten them with
a lawsuit. My tailor could solve this tailoring problem.

4. Overall, the suit makes a good impression. Except for
Style Form-adept igents, most guests will hardly notice these flaws should
you be unable to get them corrected in time.

5. Go on YELP or similar sites and get your sweet revenge, You are also
doing a public service in steering future customers away from an incompetent
and irresponsible operation.
