I recently ordered a suit for an upcoming event. The model is the Lazio wool/mohair (I live above the Arctic circle), and I ordered it in both 46 and 48 to pick the one that fit me the best.
Now, the 46 is the one that feels like it fits the best. The length of the sleeves and jacket feel okay, the upper waist fits close to the body without any pulling on the button or at the back. The pants for the 46 are a bit the tight side, but okay (as I understand from reading previous posts here I can just have a tailor let the waistband out to fix this). While the fit of the shoulders feel right, I'm just concerned that they're just too narrow.
The 48 is in comparison longer in both the sleeves and jacket, and the body and shoulders are wider. The pants has a more comfortable fith though.
The 46 is the one I'm leaning towards, so is it the right fit? The 48 would need probably need a few alterations if I were to keep it. I'm fairly new in the game and thought I'd just ask. Any help and/or advice will be greatly appreciated.
Size 46 below.
The 46 looks to fit you much better. Doesn't seem like you'll need a single alteration on the jacket.
