Twitter confirming this, sad to hear the news..
That's my understanding as well. I thought at first it's the correlation between the jacket and the trousers however I started to doubt that after seeing sportscoat with drop.Drop is the jacket shoulder and jacket waist proportion, the bigger the drop the more aggressive the cut (i.e slimmer waist, higher armholes and slimmer sleeves etc).I've once tried a Caruso jacket and a Ferre jacket with drop 10 where on both jackets the chest were very snug, the armholes were small...
Make sure to email them first before going there hence they can slot their time for you. To me four days would be the minimal.
