I know the look that I want, but is there a way to know which model might suit me best or do I need to rely on the knowledge of the staff? I'm looking for a very trim tailored look. Thanks for your help. The MTM thing is completely new to me.
It would help to know which retailer you are using for your order. At Harry Rosen for instance, they have OTR Samuelsohn suits and jackets in-store in a few of the different models (though by no means all of them). In addition, on trunk show days, there is often a Samuelsohn rep on hand, and they often bring with them stock-sized jackets in different models.
Finally, I seem to recall a post describing many of the different models somewhere, I believe by Zegna_mtl. You should be able to find it using the search function.
