Pretty frequent. They don't wait for special occasions; it seems like every few weeks they have it again.
FWIW to others I sized down one from my usual pants size, but I tend to not wear my pants with the waistband too tight. With swim trunks I use a more exact fit so they don't fall off when I'm swimming. OB sizing is consistent with Parke and Ronen for me.
 I think you misread what I wrote. That explanation is in line with my understanding, but in the movie the Oxford is described as an open-laced shoe, which would be incorrect. There was also a line from Mark Strong about how "A bespoke suit always fits." This isn't entirely correct either, since the bespoke process as I understand it usually requires multiple fittings, and that scene was the first time Eggsy would wear his bespoke suit. Great movie, but perhaps the writers...
That's a military abortion clinic, I hear. Hail Satan, and have a wonderful day.  Did anyone notice that Colin Firth described the oxford shoe in the movie as any open-laced dress shoe? Should have been closed-laced?
Has OP made a few friends around where he moved to, at least?
Hmm I tried it on again and I think I may have had an odd posture in the first photos. Somehow it doesn't look as big now, although it may still be too big to save through alterations.
Do you believe that it could be trimmed down to fit, even if this isn't the ideal solution? I ask because it was just under $1500 new from a discounter, so even with the cost of alterations I don't think I could get a bespoke suit of similar quality for around the same price. On the other hand, I still have the option to return it, and any amount is too much for a suit that can't be made to fit. What are the disadvantages to trying to slim this one down? Sorry for all the...
 As I recall, my shoulder jut out too much on the size down, and I've been using the shoulder as the main criterion for judging fit (I believe that's the most important factor?). The trouser waist is actually a perfect fit, why? And thank you again for taking the time to bring me up to speed on suit fitting.
I can't actually see the picture at work, but if they're the squared aviators there's a good chance that they could be Randolph Engineering, too. AO and RE make virtually the same model; I have the RE version that is supposed to be slightly higher quality. AO came first, became standard issue to the USAF, and were worn on the moon. A former employee started RE, believing he could improve on the construction. The RE version has since become USAF standard issue.
Thanks for taking the time to respond, I understand that you're a noted expert in this. Could you please explain why the shoulders are too wide? When I feel my actual shoulder under the suit it seems to go right to the edge of the suit shoulder, if not slightly past. I'm wondering if the shoulder appears bigger than it is because of Brioni's Roman structured shoulder style. I've also heard that the V-shape is one of the things the brand is noted for, so wouldn't it be...
