Thank you in advance for your time and advice on my question.
I'm going to be having an interview in the next 2 weeks for graduate school and need a new suit for the occasion.
I've decided to go with the following suit but can't figure out which jacket size best fits me.
I'm 5'6" and about 145 lbs. and like a more fitted look to better compliment my dimensions.
I know that the off the rack suit doesn't live up to the standards of most in this forum (standards I hope to some day approach myself with time, experience, and $) but am trying to do the best I can :-)
I've always worn a 38S with 30/30 pants, and the pants this time around seem to work ok at 30/30, though some tailoring of the hem will definitely need to be done.
It's the jacket that really has me flumoxed. I know tailoring will definitely need to be done on it, but not sure which size to start with and that best fits me.
It's a $250 range suit, 98% wool/2% spandex.
I was really angling for a JCrew Ludlow but is just out of my price range at the moment.
Thanks all again!
Here's the first jacket, a 36S:
And here is the 38S:
