(1) How closely does your actual chest measurement correspond to your suit size (and I'm asking for YOU in particular)? For example, if your chest measurement is 40 will YOU opt for a size 40 suit (as a general matter)? (2) Comment on these two fits and tell me which one you prefer/think is more elegant. Fit #1 Fit #2 A note on the links, I included these pics because they were easy to find. Ignore the fact that the suits jacket cut compliments the pants cut in each. What I want comments on is how the first link is a looser cut in the torso, and the second link is a more pinched cut, so much so that you can see some pulling of the fabric in the torso area (another stupid rule, I think, the one that says that the jacket shouldn't wrinkle AT ALL when buttoned -- that was the first rule my first tailor told me).
