I'm about 6'1 so jacket length will probably be a problem.
I'll check out Jil suiting. Gonna try to make it out to Uniqlo this weekend too to check out their suits.
He meant the actual drop of your body, that is your chest measurement in relation to your waist. Not what you sweater/jacket size is compared to your pants.
If you are somewhat built and muscular, some cuts that skinny people look good will look bad on you.
Agree with conceptionist, I think you will be surprised.
Is there any weird CM rule about when to put cuffs on slacks or not? I've got a pair of suit pants that I want to have hemmed to no break and I'm wondering if I should get cuffs put on them too. Trousers are flat front with an 8" hem if that makes any difference.
Messed up a hem job on wool pants because I wore them higher at the tailor then I normally do relaxed and don't like wearing belts unless paired with collared shirts I wear infrequently. Supposed to be no break but now nearly whole inch longer than expected with break. My tailor's gonna laugh when I bring in thee pairs of pants to re-hem, although two are raw denim and their stretch is crazy unpredictable.
Not really. There's an outdated dictum that says cuffs for pleated pants, no cuffs for flat front pants, which I don't think has been followed for a long time. Some people say cuffs shorten the leg line, so they're less ideal for shorter people, but @mafoofan is short and likes 2" cuffs.
One point in favor of cuffs is that the extra weight of the cuff helps the drape of the pants, reinforcing the clean, straight line of no break. I like to ask for a slightly slanted hem on pants with no break, though, so my socks aren't exposed as easily, but you can't achieve this with cuffs. If I go no cuffs and no break, I usually ask the tailor to add interlining at the hem, so I get the benefit of the extra weight.
I cuffed all my suit pants in the past but am starting to prefer the slightly more minimalist look of no cuffs. Big cuffs will mark you as more of a CM guy, which is probably fine since we're talking suits and you're wondering about CM rules.
