Thanks guys. I had seen the Traveller Havana suit separates, but could've sworn I read somewhere in this thread that SS could swap the suit trousers on a non-separate suit.
Can you point me to which suits are available to order with different sized trousers and jackets? I don't think you can filter for that on their website, can you?Re cuffing: I like 1.75'' cuffs with minimal/no break. Need 4.38'' fabric for that. So their 31'' hemmed inseam + 1.5'' fabric folded in/sewn at the hem should allow a max inseam of just over 28'' with 1.75'' cuffs. That might actually work for me.
I received my first SS purchase this week, a Blue Lazio suit, and have also been very pleased with the whole experience.Fabric is a lovely color irl.Thought I'd post a bit of info here (mostly things I was curious about pre-purchase), in case it can be useful to someone else:- 1st sleeve buttonhole is 1.75'' from the end of the sleeve.

Besides, if there are added benefits to that, I just assume a place like...
I assume the blurry photos refer to this. I'm surprised you haven't mentioned B.Nelson among the options. Have you asked Nick V.? Fwiw, if you do send your shoes back to Lobb, they may replace the welt altogether as they do at EG.
In college, a black girl once stopped me in a hallway and told me I was 'rather cute for an Asian guy'. I believe she meant that in the best possible way. This was pre-2000, so she was certainly ahead of the times.
Brother Derek, you're doing it wrong.Just spend less time time with menswear enthusiasts online and MOAR time with womenz irl.I.e. less trunk shows, MOAR bewbs!Has any ethnicity claimed the ?
Depends. Mix is a combination of how many ethnicities?
Incidentally, would like to trade dieworkwear out of the Asian community because 'Derek Guy' isn't a very AZN name. Representatives of other ethnicities, please PM me with offers.
No takers yet?
