Sorry about the tone of my response, but honestly, your comments on the answer I gave for your question in my thread, which I am looking for honest and helpful advice was, at the time, seemingly offensive and condescending.    I never said that the 42L Napoli fit the "same" as the 44L Jort. Rather that, again, "the roomier/boxier fit of the Napoli line in a 42L allowed me the breathing room I needed in the shoulders and back area,  but because of my smaller waist size and...
Have you tried on, in person, any of their offerings in the Napoli, Jort, La Spalla, Havana or Sienna?   If you read what I said, when answering YOUR question, I usually am somewhere in between a 42 and 44 depending on the "fit" of the particular line of suit. In this case , at the Suit Supply Soho store, as previously stated, the roomier/boxier fit of the Napoli line in a 42L allowed me the breathing room I needed in the shoulders and back area,  but because of my...
Well, in the Napoli line I could fit a 42L with alterations. But, in the Jort I believe I fit best in a 44L. Considering it's their slimmest line and I'm a pretty big dude, that seems right.    Like I said, it was obvious when putting it on that the Jort was by far the best option there (at least for my frame). Felt very comfortable, wide lapels etc. But it was still $1k before tax for an OTR suit in only maybe 3 different variations of blue.   The whole reason I...
I went into SuitSupply and tried on a myriad of navy and blue suiting options. There was one that fit me almost perfectly OTR and looked great.....of course it was their premium "Jort" line, s150s I believe in birdseye blue. Runs $999....quality and fit both seemed top notch, but for that much I think I'm going to look elsewhere.   If I run into a snag, suitsupply is definitely a good option for a $500 "decent" suit. But if I'm going to spend over $1k on a stape suit...
anybody have any experience with windsor custom?
I have read the fit and tailor threads. The problem is that with my measurements, MANY off the rack suit's have problems with my body that are NOT fixable by a tailor.   I think for the time being, I may just search the BR NYC locations for a 44L and try and use the 50% discount. Then pay the extra $150 to get it "very well tailored".
I will say this, I am happy enough with the H&M considering I got it half off for around $100 TOTAL. Although I don't expect it to last too long, I do very much like the silhouette it gives.   I'm sure that somewhere I can find a 43L, but even then with the other problems I listed, I'm not sure it will be as it should. I will definitely check them out just in case though, don't know why I hadn't thought about those places before.    I think another questions is....if I...
Hey Everybody,   Fairly new here, as far as posting is concerned. I'm in need of 1-3 more suits for business/office wear, hopefully within the next month.   I currently have: `cashmere, medium grey, Marc Jacobs suit. (I got it BNIB for free). `bronze (?), slight sheen, H&M, fits surprisingly well but its...."flashy" `assortment of jackets   My measurements: Neck - 17.5" Sleeve - 33" Waist (true) - 35" Chest - 41" Hips - 40.5" Inseam -...
double breasted navy suit from BR.....I'm athletic build about 6'5 218lbs. fairly conservative hedge fund environment in midtown.   too much? will the double breasted look be out of style by next year?   I basically got the BR friends and family discount from a member on here, and need to get 1-3 new suits for rotation 5 days a week at the office.
12.5-13?
