Based on the following images, can you guys please advice me what I should do? In a few stores that I tried on suits, a 36R seemed to fit me well, but in the SS suit, it seemed a bit bigger than I expected (I thought the cuts would be a bit slimmer than the normal stores). Please bear in mind that the pants fit me well. Should I go to the tailor and ask the sleeves and length of the jacket to be shortened or opt for a 34R jacket? Also, this pics were snapped right away from the box, and I just wore it over the t-shirt I wore that day, so ignore the mess, etc. Thanks for the help!

idk why everyone is telling you to size down....your lapels are bowing as it is...a 34 would be way too tight in the chest. You need to try a different cut.

Maybe he has very straight shoulders and upright posture. Every one of my suits bows at the lapels from time to time when I put my shoulders back like a hanger no matter how tight or loose the chest is. that's why I noted that shoulders are important and with SS you can't lose out by ordering different sizes and sending back what doesn't work.

His lapels bow without requiring any of your odd calisthenics. UltraMagnetical (WTF kind of name is that?) is correct.

I only see bowing in the right picture. On the left it looks like he's trying to robo-pose with his arms straight down. Agree to disagree. Living in with *shoulders straight across* syndrome can be tough when perusing racks of suits.

I agree, when he stands perfectly still with his arms flat against his sides, the lapels do not bow. You win.

I would say that the cut does not fit him... the waist down is good but the shoulders on the suit does not really follow his natural shoulder line the right way.. I believe that all though the Napoli is as slim pants wise as all the other cuts ( Washington wise/ Sienna) the Napoli line gives you a little bit more room through the shoulders and the chest.. its more for those gentlemen that are bigger uptop.. (myself 20.3" shoulder to Shoulder blade and 46" chest so a 46L fits well) than someone who has slimmer shoulders and a chest.. I really feel the Sienna will be the better fit for him. I dont think he should size down or up.

Thanks guys for the input. I really appreciate the time, effort, and critique. I bought this suit on a hunch because I needed a decent suit for a relatively cheap price. I simply can't afford to order 2-3 suits and decide because the bank is empty (sadly the story of most students like me). I think a 36 S would fit me better, but SS doesn't seem to offer that size, and like someone else chimed in, a 34 will be too tight I am sure. I can't afford the Sienna model currently. I just need a solid navy suit to get me through currently, and then after that I can purchase a more high quality and expensive suit. The length is simply too long I feel, and it feels a little lose around the chest area (although, many people tell me I have a big chest for my size). Also the arms could be a bit "skinner" (not sure about the term). I guess for smaller guys like me, a more slim fitting suit is the only way since we can literally look like boxes moving around. Btw, I am not in the USA, but abroad, so I don't have the luxury to go to decent stores like you guys have been blessed with in the USA. Someone said to consider the Washington model, and it does seem smaller fitting, but it just seems to fashion forward with the peak lapels, etc. I will be using this suit for more formal settings (interviews, class presentation), so I should play it safe for my first suit with a more conservative look and then in the future can attack the other fits. Thanks again guys, hopefully with your input I can make a choice on whether to return it and try another? (any recommendation? pretty lost now and needed it soon).

You can try one of Benjamin's suits on ehaberdasher.com, which is in your price range. I just checked and he has your size; unfortunately, he only has black, mid-gray or blue pinstripe.

Im not an expert by any means, but if its already bowing like that with the 36 than I dont want to imagine what a 34 would look like. The suit he is trying on appears to be for those with a flat chest and broad shoulders....kinda similar to RLBL. He Needs a different cut in my opinion

You could, but it would not be prudent.

We are getting way off-track. I'd greatly appreciate some more feedback from SS's suits. I have been exploring several Napoli fit suits. I believe the Washington is too trendy with the peak lapels 1/2 third button (hole on the lapel). Anyone else feel this way about the washington?

I'm not a peak lapel person, but the 3/2 roll is pretty traditionally American, even if trendy right now. A Lazio model blue linen suit should arrive at my place tomorrow. I'll post some pictures when it does since I haven't seen that cut talked about much

im expecting a delivery of some trous from suit supply.....ive looked for some white slim pants for far too long, and these looked like theyd fit the bill pretty well. I hate buying pants without trying them on, so heres hoping they work out ok. Ill post a report/review after i get into them.

I've been considering a pair of slacks from SS.  The pants appear to be nicely made for what i can spend.  I have two suits in the london cut btw and the suit pants seem well constructed.  Look forward to the pics and your feedback when they arrive.

.. like i said I have 2 london suits - they're nice, but cut more traditionally than the washington.  I tried the washington and the napoli at SS in NY, and the washington is a bit slim for me and the button stance is too high.  If you order the napoli, please post some pics.
