It is an ordeal. I flew there mid September. In my case two plane changes to get to Naples from SFO.I had never been there before. Now it is my least favorite place in Italy.
Shoulders too padded, too square. Overall, jackets fit poorly. Belt buckles show through the quarters, probably because the jackets are too small.
Not sure that I can make it. Friends visiting from out of town. If friends have alternate plans for Sat, I'll be at the Meet-up. Damn! It will make two in a row that I miss.
I would go up a size in the sweater you are showing.IMHO, a bulky sweater such as this should fit more loosely.
Carajo! I knew this would happen. I love Meet-Ups. I'll be in Venice on the 29th having already visited Napoli, Rome and Milan and on the the way to Munich, Salzburg and Vienna. I may actually meet Fritzl in Vienna- we've been in contact. Guys have a great Meet-Up!! Gus, we've gotta do another one in Late Oct/ Nov. My best regards to Mike , Jim Okert's best salesman.
Admittedly, I have the luxury of not being in your business. Nor was I ever in the clothing trade.So I can be a purist about what I prefer and looks good to me.
Before you consider the skimpy faddish dreck from suit supply, etc.,consider the wide selection of classical offerings from O' Connells. I used to live in Chicago where I wore a suit to work and sometimes waited out side on a train platform for15 minutes. My solution: a 32 oz British Warm, or an Invertere greatcoat.

Might not really be an issue in the UK where tweeds are often worn with wool/cotton blend shirts,heavy sweaters, vests etc. and under a rain and wind proof jacket or coat.For example:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_BUOfb81B9EE/TR2A4WAOD7I/AAAAAAAAGYU/gippmdZ0AaI/s1600/wellis%2Bshooting0002smlis5.jpg
"a bit too short"To me it looks like it should be worn with a kilt:http://www.kinlochanderson.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/t/h/the_kinloch_anderson_day_kilt_jacket_in_dark_grey_tweed.jpg
I understand that there are shorter lines for those who conform to a more classicsense of style.
