Can anyone comment on shrinkage? For those of you who machine wash/dry your shirts, how much allowance do you give? I am about to place an order, but want to take that into account.
If they make suits, they likely make pants. This should get you started....well that and Epaulet and Howard Yount
As a disclaimer, I will say that I am very different size-wise from you, but I can probably offer some insight in this area. I personally own both a Canali suit and an Isaia suit in a size 44L. Comparing the two, the jackets fit extremely similarly and I had them both tailored in exactly the same way. The trousers were a little bit different.
