UncleBeebo, you can thank me for your 20th thumb. :fistbump:

ETB, have you ever though about getting some suits with slightly wider lapels and some more texture? Flannel, linen, birdseye, etc. would work much better with your more out there ties than shiny worsted suits IMHO.

I'd love to TBH. And yes, I've looked into it. Problem is, nowhere in Dublin / Ireland sells anything like that. I'd have to go bespoke, which I can't afford. My other option (which I seriously considered) was ordering online from SuitSupply, but not being able to try it on first is the issue. I'm 6'5" and broad, so fits are difficult for me for the most part. 

 

I'd love a "Lapo"-style wide lapel suit.

I knew it! Looks better with Ewan McGregor's face, but even then it's only slightly better than an average American male.

What I wore for "Spy Wednesday".

Thanks, everyone, for all the thumbs up for yesterday's post. It must have been due to @Sugarbutch's tie!

I understand where you're coming from. I'm living in Scotland at the moment, and there aren't many options here either. SuSu has free shipping/returns, so it might be worth a try. Refunds are pretty fast, so you wouldn't miss your money for long.

Very good stuff today, especially @eviltimeban, @SeaJen and @deacon-hh (welcome, nice first fit!)

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into it!

I'm 6'4" and a similar build to you, I think, ETB and I've found SuSu that fits. I have the benefit of a store in Philadelphia, but I've also bought online. The measurements they provide for each style have been very useful. Not sure about to Ireland, but they offer free shipping and returns in the US. Worth a try.

They do ship to Ireland, they have a Euro hub (and the store in London) so its a possibility. Which one did you go for?

I tried on a bunch and I liked the Napoli and York. I have a SoHo jacket. I have a couple of weddings later in the summer so I'm looking forward to picking some more interesting suits up for those.

Docker's looks nice, although I think the jacket and pants are too tight.
