Who DOESN'T come here for the handies?

The jackets were often long enough to cover his butt, but they all had serious issues with gaping at the neck, or otherwise did not suit him at all. (As it is, he has cause to be in China with some regularity, and he has his suits and jackets made at WW Chan in Shanghai - not a solution for your problem, I would assume, as you're in Dublin, from your profile.)

 

Thanks, yes it would be pretty risky without trying it. I'm not lanky but broad on the shoulders so that makes jacket fittings difficult. Sometimes I'm a 40L, sometimes 42L. Depends on the cut and the fabric.

 

Thanks for the advice.

If you look at his posts, I think he may have posted in the wrong thread! I don't believe anyone has attacked him due to the fact that this is his first post in CM lol....I was looking at this post like:

 

WTF?! :wow:

Well he only joined yesterday, with 4 posts? That's hardly 6 months of posting pics! I reckon its someone who created a profile secondary to their actual one.

The nearest SuitSupply store (of which I am aware) to Dublin is the one in Vigo St., London - if you pop over the Irish Sea some weekend, drop by and see how their goods fit. As it is, I'm 5'9", and the jackets that I tried on at SuitSupply, some of the 42 shorts fit better than the 42 R's. Conversely, my partner, 5' 7", normally a 38S, bought a 38R - go figure.

Taking you guys up on your advice, I'll probably try to grab a good navy and charcoal blazer next. That should cover many functions and be easy to pair as well. I suppose one should start at the basics, eh?

That's up around where Savile Row is. Yes, no trip to London is complete without a trip to Abbey Road first, and then Savile Row... :-)

Tried to do something vaguely Santa-ish for this week's challenge them, what with reddish trousers, black (suede) shoes and an off-white turtleneck, but couldn't come up with anything all that close, so not going to enter it. You guys must vote Roycru for the win this week, though. If you haven't see his hilarious pic yet, go take a look.

Vigo St. runs from the south end of Savile Row to Regent St. - essentially, a continuation of Burlington Gardens (at least according to the A to Z in my head). The SuitSupply is on the Ede & Ravenscroft side of Vigo St., diagonally opposite the side street entrance of Gieves and Hawkes. (Ya think that I've been there a few times? smile.gif ).
