I have four pairs of Alden shells in C width that I've never felt any pain wearing, however they feel very slightly wide in the instep so when I recently bought some alden longwings in shell I went for a B width. I noticed that while the shoes seem to fit perfectly they feel noticeably narrower in the heels and the first time I wore them there was a slight pain on the side of my heel. I've worn them to work several days now and they are slightly better each time. I'd...

It buttons in and out easily, especially since it doesn't have any arms. I...
The biege, it is the traditional trench color. I think the stone is a very light gray. Yes that was on the FL, but those posts have disappeared.
I haven't inspected a burberry or aquascutum, but I can't imagine they are of noticeably higher quality material and construction. Also, when I took it in to a high end menswear store to have the sleeves shortened they asked where I had bought it. They were thinking that it would be a nice item to offer in their store.

I'm 6'2" and can be between a 44R and a 44L in a coat. I bought the 44L to be safe and ended up having the sleeves shortened by about an inch. The 44 part was perfect.
I have been using mytailor.com and have been very happy with everything they've done. The key is in the tailor though. Joe Hemrajani makes trips to my area and I love working with him. I've seen mixed reviews posted concerning some of the other tailors. My suggestion would be to order one suit or one sport coat and slacks combination and one shirt the first visit and then wear them back to your next appointment to see what needs to be altered. Also, before your first...

The coat looks to fill all the traditional criteria. I shall phone them to confirm that their coats have horn buttons, or whether they are imitation horn. Anyone heard of them before? I...
I have the same measurements. While I have had the pants on some OTR suits altered, I have never been satisfied with the results. Unless you can find athletic fit suits you will need to stick to 1) sport coats and slacks 2) suit separates or 3) made to measure. I've gone the made to measure route and have been very happy I did.
