Thanks for the input men, and the discussion following. I think the chest fits fine, it's a relaxed fit that I have no problem with and I don't tend to think it looks billowy. It was an ebay thrift that cost me fairly little, Hackett linen and cotton I believe. Most likely I wont wear it, the shoulders present an obstacle in that there will be too much alteration needed together with sleeves & body.
I purchased 2 SC's on the bay for quite little. This one and one SR pane/check in wool, they were both advertised as 42R but the SR one fits very much better in all aspects mentioned as flawed in the fit I posted. I've learned a lesson though, keep to your exact measurements as I did on the SR rather than your "size" -- what I relied on for the Hackett. Progress, gentlemen.
I don't understand why people buy jackets/suits over the internet because you can't try the stuff on. I go to stores and try jackets on and even though they're the same size they all fit differently. Some of them fit better than others. I only buy them if they're close and I think my tailor can alter them.post #54351 of 787237/9/13 at 5:47amQuote:Originally Posted by FillW

after years of buying, you (me) get a feel for what brands work for you. I have no issue buying stuff online because i know how most makers fit me. this was after a lot of buying and returning/reselling though.post #54352 of 787237/9/13 at 6:13ampost #54353 of 787237/9/13 at 6:17ampost #54354 of 787237/9/13 at 6:20ampost #54355 of 787237/9/13 at 6:29ampost #54356 of 787237/9/13 at 6:50ampost #54357 of 787237/9/13 at 7:01ampost #54358 of 787237/9/13 at 7:19amMy first post in here. No real means by which to take a good fit pic. Just components.
Linen/wool tan SC from Samuelsohn
Tie from Kent Wang
BB navy linen pants
Timex Weekender watch on strap from the knottery (I'm big-timing it today!)
Santoni Knox shoes
Belt - don't know the maker - it's just my favorite belt
Edit: The editor won't let me add more than 2 pics per post from my iPhone. And its acting up when I tried doing a second post (terrible reception in the office). Plus, the one on my work computer doesn't give me the option to upload pics (not sure why). So I guess I'm stuck with those two pics today. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic quality

Two brothers in winter suits. My brother (left) is wearing a (navy) Isaia suit, I am wearing a (flannel) Ralph Lauren suit. Apologies for the edge distortion, IRL I actually look normal. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
you both look excellent!Quote:

does not bother me, i think it looks nice!Quote:Originally Posted by EliodA
It certainly looks well made! May I be so impolite as to ask for the price of the suit?
BTW, I'm like you, I like pick stitching too (provided it's done tastefully). My favourite suit has tons of it and I love it:

Edit: forgot to say: I like it because it makes a suit look less 'stiff'
it is! id rather not say exactly, but all their pricing is on the website, similar to KW i believe.Quote:
