/Nit-pick

Nit pick duly noted. The sleeves of this shirt are actually proper (as opposed to yesterday's, which were quite long-ish) - their disappearance from my photos is an ill effect of early morning photography. The shoes are laced as they were at purchase, but I will consider your suggestion.

Maybe I just have a big ass (entirely possible) but I will need to still size up in the future on these. The thighs are more roomier but the seat is still very slim IMHO. The construction, fabric, and feel is top-fing-notch though in my opinion. I got a 33 because the waist was 17 inches and the thigh measurement was fine, but I had to let the seat out substantially and they are still a little snug. Going to get a 34 next time and it will be fine I think. I think they look fine with a SC, the leg isn't very narrow.

Señor Crust, I think the bar lacing doesn't look good when the two sides of the shoe (sorry, I'm sure there's a technical term, but...) don't meet up. For these shoes on your feet, your lacing is good, IMO.

CP, re your thumbs comment: My bowtie arsenal is limited.

Cross post from another thread, looking for input. Very impressed thus far with suitsupply. The question is, do I return for a 44L, or take to a tailor. How close to fitting properly do you all think I've come?

Love this jacket, btw. Great lapels.

My SC arrived. Very impressed with transit times to Canada, and the complete lack of shipping fees, including brokerage! How refreshing to pay one price, and have it actually be the price.

Quality looks good, packaging is excellent. Nice hanger and bag included with your purchase. Overall satisfaction so far is high.

Now for the fit of the Washington. It is snug. I'm typically a 42L, verging on 43. 6'2", 210lbs. Basically, I'm tall with a big ass. Which is where I'm looking for some opinions on the fit here. I think it looks good through the shoulders, chest and back, however my butt is doing things to the vents I'm not sure I love (bearing in mind, I've left the stitching in the vents in case I decide to return). Does anyone have any experience with tailoring these things... is there any material available in the lower back to let it out some, and provide some relief?

Sorry for the crappy pics... Ms. Mike is away, and I wanted to get these up. Fire away!

It looks kinda tight all around to me, including the waist. Did you get the Washington because you liked the lapel style or because you wanted something with a bigger drop? I think that's their slimmest cut, with an 8 drop. I'm usually a 42L (6'2, 185 lb) and I felt a bit snug in it when I tried it on. I tried on a 44L also however and shoulders were just way too big.

Not sure because of the dark pics, but it looks like the chest is tight, and there's definitely not enough room for the tuchus in the skirt.
post #30849 of 78717
Thanks guys. I went for the Wash because of the lapels, and because of the current SC lineup, it was my preferred material/colour.

There is marginally enough room in the chest and shoulders, though for a SC, not as concerned. My intention was to wear this piece more casually. The skirt is too tight for sure, and may be beyond any tailor to rectify (thoughts?).

I'm 3/4's of the way to just returning it, and ordering the 44.

Get the 44, it is much easier to slim something through the body than to let something out, in my experience. unless the shoulders are too big on the 44 it will drape much betterand the fullness of the washington lapels will look better if they aren't bowing out. As a person who recently decided to go larger (but not boxy) in my suits/SCs you will like the look. It is clear the skirt is too tight and opening the vents will just make them splay open, rather than sit nicely. It won't be slimming, it will just look too tight.

This is my first post to this thread. In fact, I'm sufficiently new that I don't know the rules of the road, so if I inadvertently foot fault, please forgive and feel free to send me a (polite) PM setting me straight.

One thing I do know: My pic quality is going to fall far short of others' skills, but I'm going to try not to let that stop me. So here goes....

Thanks, guys. Be gentle.

I am rather new to this as well and have spent two days going through all 1543 pages so I have picked up quite a few things from these gentlemen. Here I go, your tieknot could be a bit tighter as it seems to gap a bit. Your collar sits under your SC beautifully and your lapel sizes are fine for such an DV SC. I am not too fond of the PS however, as it goes with that tie IMHO. You could have also tried a different tie, with somewhat of a pattern and yes those socks are a disaster but I like them biggrin.gif. From what I have been reading and learning from these men, you are not far off so you and I are definately in the right thread.

Hey, some of us appreciate mixed metaphors around here, OK? You've buttered your bread, now lie in it!
