Gents - I just received my first suit supply piece which is a Linen Havana jacket. I am 6'1 with long arms so I usually fluctuate between 40L and 40R depending on maker. I ordered a 40L and I am now curious if anyone knows the measurement differences between a 40L and 40R. I think the 40L may be a touch too long and i worry about shortening the jacket hem. I was thinking about ordering another 40R and returning one of them but i was hoping to get some input first.
Can anyone provide shirt makers in the US that have similar/comparable sizing to TM Lewin slim fit? BB slim fit are great in the shoulders but i need to have them tailored because of excess fabric everywhere else. I'm not against ordering from TM Lewin online however it would be nice to pick up some shirts at a brick and motar store. Does BB ESF compare well?

Boston/Brookline is pretty easy to figure out. I was in Brookline for a couple years about 4 years ago. The best supermarket in the area is Whole Foods on Washington St. right at the Brookline/Brighton line. If your not into the organic food thing, there is a Star Mkt (shaws) on Beacon St. right in between Washington Sq. and Cleveland Circle which is pretty good and they just renovated about 2 years ago. As suggested above, try fugakyu and also make sure to go to...

It really depends on what your doing for BBH. Great FX/Currency dept. but thats pretty much where it ends. Pay scale is comparable to every other Boston custodial bank. Honestly cant believe they survived last year and didnt get eaten up by one of the publics. If all you're looking for is getting sh*tfaced every thursday night and doing the bare minimum, this is the palce.

I wouldnt call it leaving with you tail between your legs if you find a better opportunity elsewhere. If you have made the improvements you say you did, your current group will be the ones that suffer. I would just start looking for new jobs (discreetly ofcourse) and better your situation.
