quick question:

can sweaters be tailored? can I get the side seams taken in to reduce slop around the middle?

1) V-neck merino or cashmere sweater is standard part of my winter uniform,

2) I have to get XL to fit my shoulders, arms, and definitely length (6'6" w/ a 32" inseam, so way too much torso to cover)...

3) and I've been noticing that, even in new sweaters, I have 3,4 inches of slop at the waist. I would prefer not to have this slop.

any suggestions and experience appreciated.
