I mean Euro sizes.
The thing I found troubling with SS linens (maybe all linens do so, I wouldn't know), is that it pulls. A lot. I got a Havana jacket in blue linen, and it pulls around the elbows and lats. So to anyone getting anything in linen from SS - beware of pulling and possible tearing as a result. Wool is much more durable in that regard. Especially if you are athletically built and have some tightness around your arms and back.
I can't seem to get a reply in the Tailor's thread, but so I'll try here. I'm taking the York Plain Blue to the tailor, and I'd love some comments before I do so. In particular on:
- Sleeve length
- Is there collar gap? It's not obvious, but it doesn't hug my shirt either
- Waist suppression
- Anything else you can think of
The arms are wrinkled in the pictures, but not when standing normally, so I don't think I have to rotate the sleeve heads.
Pants are too tight in the waist and seat, and have to be let out as well.
Looks great! Do you mind telling me how tall you are? Long arms? No adjustment to the sleeve length?
Thanks so much!
