You should be thinking jacket size first. There are some brands that run large. I think the Benjamin is supposed to be more of European cut, so I'd expect it to run on the smaller side. But why not use your MTM measurements? Or are those only for shirts, not...

It just looks maybe a little tight in the chest and short in the arms. Also possibly the shoulder, but it's hard to tell for sure. The shoulders should be the starting point for fit. If it feels constricted there and in the upper chest when you lift or cross your arms, it...
Thats a 38. I'm 5 11" 170lb. 40" chest. 32 waist. Suits sizes are; chest 41", shoulders: 17.6", Sleeve length: 25.5", Length from bottom of collar: 29.5, Trouser waist: 32", Hem Inseam: 36" Unfinished, Rise: 10.5", Leg width at bottom: 8.3" I do like a fitted suit, but perhaps I'm pushing it. It does'nt feel uncomfortable though.

Do I prove the arguement, and the buttoning point is a little too high for me? Or do I just need the next size up? Feels a fraction nippy under the arms. Comments welcome as I need to make my mind up tonight as I away for 3 weeks from tomorrow. Lovely material and build by...
Good to know also. Mine is due for delivery today. We will see how it works.

Just by wearing a (nice) suit to work. Texas aint like that.
The below is from wikipedia, but I can tell you I have often seen troos, trews, tartan trousers worn with either a normal DJ, or a Prince Charlie jacket. Thats from attending a 100+ black tie events in Scotland. Normally you wouldnt wear tartan unless you have some association to Scotland. But everyone has a Scottish Granny right? Scottish Highland dress is often worn to black and white tie occasions, especially at Scottish reels and céilidhs; the black tie...
Some 3's rolled to 2, but they were built that way if it makes any difference.
Have they discovered a cure for 'lazy' yet?
