Suits are typically sized off chest, so whatever your chest measurement is, that is your size. That said, I find the more important measurement to be shoulders. I would guess, that whatever size you are in a Fitz (in this case 42S), you would fit into a 42S in the other lines or potentially a 40S. Best thing to do is go to a local store and try them on. Waist size is easily altered....also, your "stomach" and waist size should be the same....so I do not know what you...
Hi Sacaroly, I have a Mattabisch kiton shirt, which I purchased in my normal size some time ago. The quality is very good, on par with the best dress shirts I own.

Depends on the day. From a perspective of contrast, then onyx would be the better choice. Some people like this, but there is nothing "wrong" per se, with white MOP. I mean, no one complains that their buttons don't offer enough contrast. I wear MOP an enjoy them.
Thank you gentlemen. Much appreciated.
Anyone have a suggestion for: A Navy herringbone summer fabric with a blend of either cotton/linen/silk or wool/linen/silk? (and a link to where to purchase) Alternatively, a place to buy an unreconstructed, patch-pocket summer blazer with something akin to the above fabric?
Assuming you are responding to my post: I am merely point out that a classic double-breasted trench coat stands out more than the coat I linked. I think either coat looks out of place with sneakers or flip-flops (I tried a long coat with suede sneakers once, it didn't work).
