Thanks for the info. I'll see what they have to offer during the semi-annual sale.
I would normally buy off the rack, but BB doesn't seem to keep many suits in my size. And if there are any, they're usually in a cut that's too large for my frame (Madison, Regent).

Can someone explain to me what "3/4 placket" means? I've also seen the numbers "3/2" thrown around in the context of suits. I'm new to this and can't think of the right terms to search for on google. Many thanks.
