Measurements on the PRL?
^My 31/32 measure 16" at the waist. The inseam runs slightly short, so you might want to size up and hem them yourself. Jkhan82: The pants go down to 30" online, but they don't show up if they are sold out.
KW does MTM in the same fabric for the same price: https://www.kentwang.com/about/shirts/. No need to worry about sizes if you have a little time to wait.

Guess I need to look for 16.5" and under. Nohio, would you mind posting a fit pic of your tweed so I can see how it should fit?

Don't give up. Just keep checking ebay once in a while. It took me a few months to finally find a tweed that fit (I'm a 36S, too). BTW, don't look just at the chest.

But this takes the cake. I don't think it is a nitpick. I noticed the same thing in your photos and found it really jarring, especially since your fits are usually impeccable. Plus it's called a "granny" knot. Not cool. Tie your shoes like a man.
Is there anywhere besides the Hanger Project that sells hangers in small sizes (e.g. <16")?

Can anyone actually quantify HOW the jacket is too short? Where SHOULD it end? What basis are you using? Relation to hands? knuckles? Entire body ratio? (Which can not be seen) For example, a year ago, reaching the knuckles was good. Then, 6 months ago reaching the knuckles was way way way too long....
