Hello Gentlepersons, Thanks to the help of many here and AA, I've been introduced to Sierra Trading Post, and bought an Isaia suit, which arrived today. I was rather concerned about fit, since this was my first European (heck, you could argue it's my first "real" suit purchase) suit, I was a bit uneasy about the possible fit. Following STP's recommendation, I got a 56L, which they said was a 44L equivalent, which I tend to wear. Now, I don't think the suit fits so horribly that I need to return it, which is good news. However, I was hoping to get a good critique of my suit (and shirt and tie), since I am new at this, and more information is always good. I will be bringing the suit to Field's here in DC as per some high praise by those in the know, to get buttonholes cut and whatever else may be needed. I have my own opinions, but I would like to hear what everyone else thinks first. Everything is fair game for criticism (except for the messy room in the background, since I am in the middle of major spring cleaning). I have a thick skin, so no need to worry about me. Sorry for the bad exposure and photo angles... that was the best I could do right now. And thank you so much for your help. Let me know if there are any more questions. The suit is 45/55 Linen/Wool blend, as seen here. With side vents and lining just covering the shoulder, not full. It seems like it is fairly cool material. Buttoned: Unbuttoned: Back, buttoned: Without Jacket: Trousers: And here's a larger version of the Trousers that shows the fabric well (this file is large, at 2.2mb): http://www.theaug.com/Pictures/Trouser.jpg Thank you so much for all your help.
