Can suit pants be widened?

Ok, so gained some weight around my middle. I have two good suits and the jackets fit fine, but pants too tight at waist. Can the pants be widened - just can't get to zip all the way up! If yes, where is good tailor in Scarborough/Markham?

It is done all the time.
Men's suit pants are made/engineered to adjust easily at the back seam because they are too expensive to replace because of weight gain/loose.

Usually the seam allowance is generous so increasing the waist size is easy. It is one of the easiest adjustments to make in alterations. I'm sure you tube would be your friend if you wanted to try this your self. Piece of cake to do!

wanna be a true RFD ? Fast 1 week(no food, if you've fasted before, then dry fast). You get lean, and stomach reduced in size. Double saving!!!
7 days x 20$/day of food= 140$ MINIMUM
