I just tried a Hickey suit jacket on today (HF fit me like a box) and it was a perfect fit. I'm just not a drop 7... who the F has a 29" waist?

However why is it so hard to find decent jackets with 16.5"-17" shoulders and 28" length. I hear you, it's not like I'm a freak of nature - I see plenty of dudes that are my size IRL. If it helps here are a few sz36 models that were too long for me but fit my 17" shoulders: RLBL Anthony ZZeg no model listed Roda...

Yup, they don't seem to all use the same cut/sizing - I'm usually a 36 but in ZZegs I have tried on I actually size up to a 38 whereas Nicola's experience is the reverse needing to size down. Most...

The ones I've tried on have been narrow shouldered and slim fitting which is what I need.
Cool pic - it's interesting, one last doesn't need a lot of space... but wow, I hadn't thought about how they need different sizes & widths of each one and how that would add up quickly.

I dig stingray leather but not so much on that shoe. Now if it was blue or green, maybe.

Regarding style, I'm a fan of spread turndown collar & 1/2" pleats, though pique can also look nice. IMO spread collars look like shit with a bowtie and particularly a tux. The last event I was at of several hundred older gentlemen in tuxedos I probably saw one in a pleated shirt... most men seem to wear a...
Quote: Originally Posted by Papa Doble So do the side adjusters/tabs have a few buttons you choose from or is it some sort of O-ring? I've never seen or bought pants without belt loops, obviously. Wizard's photo shows it - it's more like a ratcheting system, what's weird to me is the strap is made of rubber or plastic and not fabric. Feels cheap tbh but not something anyone would see. They aren't like the typical side adjusters you might see...
