Sorry quick question about sizing.
I've perused this large thread.
I'm not near a brick and mortar store. I'm usually a 38R (closer to a 39R) for most fits. Shoulders don't fit skinny 38R but ok for regular ones (for example Canali 13000 and 15000 and most Samuelsohn models fit ok at 38R).
I looked at the shoulder measurements online and 38R in most models is 17.7. Is this true to size when trying the jackets on?
I think I may need to size up and get a 40R and tailor everything else.
Or should I just order both and return whatever one doesn't fit.
Order both and return what doesn't fit. SuitSupply has horrendous quality control when it comes to measurements. I have 3 napoli suits, which have 3 different shoulder sizes: 18'', 18.5'', and 19''. You should get both because you don't know how it will fit.
They offer free return shipping so the only burdens are putting it back into the suit coffin and mailing it..
