Damn, that's pretty convincing
 I think tapering would ruin the style of the suit overall, and actually the full-cut leg was one of the things that drew me to this suit because slimmer trousers never seem to hang/drape right for me. So tapering is probably out, but I'm still on the fence about whether I should let the pants out to get more of a break. I'm trying to find photos of YSL suits of this style worn back in the day but not having much luck. Even product shots would be cool just to see how they...

 holy crap, that's awesome
  I have a test shirt on the way with the standard BD collar, so if no one chimes in before then, I'll post photos and measurements once I get it. My understanding is that it combines elements of Mercer, Kamakura, etc. Someone else ought to have this info readily available already though, right?
 I want the photo to include the sales associate that helps you
 Oh thanks, yeah I got it from a small menswear shop in Bellagio, Italy and unfortunately I don't even remember what the name of the place was.
Reminds me of a friend of mine from high school who used to say things like "I will kill you so hard."
