Thanks!

I'd say a 3" would look best. 2.5"-2.75" if you wanna go ultra-retro. But since you're a 42, stick with a 3" to keep the tie from looking like just a rope around your neck.

all jackets are double vented. If you're interested in a natural shoulder with no pads, the suit i'm working on right now might be for you. It's a 3 roll 2 jacket with dual vents, no ticket pocket, natural shoulder, fitted ivy-style sack suit. I think under 3" tie is perfect for my stuff. (what Bandwagonesque said)

hmm if that suit you just mentioned was in a light grey, I would be very inclined to buy one in the near future. Oh yah kudos to you on the pants leg openings; 16 inch leg openings are what i've been looking to get for the longest time, since the standard 19-20 inch pant legs for suits tend to cover too much shoe for me.

How can a sack suit be fitted?

a sack is columnar in shape. nearly any OTR sack is going to start off with a large chest (even for smaller sizes) and go straight down from there with no waist suppression. Mine will have a smaller chest, and just have the slightest shape at the waist with taking in the side seams a bit. So it's still a columnar sack, but not shaped to fit a fat guy. If you look in vintage stores and find American suits from the early 60s, nearly all of them are sacks with just a hint of a waist. My jackets are bumfreezer in length so that will offset the jacket's lack of a suppressed waist a bit and tie it all together to a look that's fitted but not defined.

but again, this is conceptual right now...we'll see how it looks IRL come sometime in februrary.

Patriotsfan....hopefully I'll have a light grey tweed for you to choose from.

Get Smart,

I'd be interested in a one-button or maybe the three-button. I've never had a MTM suit before however - I assume if I gave you my professionally tailor-done measurements for a shirt they would work for a jacket? Or are the measurements taken slightly differently for suits? Thanks.

Metro, shoot me the shirt measurements you've gotten and I'll let you know if there's anything that I need clarifying or need. But those measurements should do fine.

PM me or shoot email to: info@thickasthievesla.com

If I custom order, would I have the choice of no ticket pocket on the 1B? Apart from that, I'd probably do one for work...I'm the "cool" guy in my building! Also, just curious, who is the fabric maker you use? And also, what kind of buttons? +1 to the mad props eminating in your direction...

yea, omitting the ticket pocket is easy enough to do

buttons are horn, don't know the specific mill fabrics came from.

hopefully he'll have it in his hands by end of next week

I'm interested in one of these, but I have no clue about measurements. Measuring myself, I get a variety of measurements that don't seem to match up with any of the specs online. For example I have about a 29-30 waist, but 9.5 across the thigh (exactly at what point is this taken at?) would be too tight.

9.5" across the thigh means a circumference of 19" around. for example my thigh is 18" around (measured mid-thigh), so I can fit into the legs of my size 30 trouser, but it's a bit tight. I wear a size 32 trouser which is 10.5" across thigh (21" total) so it gives me the right amount of room to move about freely.

unless you have exceptionally thick legs (muscular or whatever) the waist corresponds with the legs pretty uniformly for majority of guys.

Don't make me cry, okay?

I can't wait. Just imagine how stylish I'm going to be teaching in Japan. Maybe I'll get a job at an all girl high school (I know I can request it, just not sure if I'd actually want to). I'm starting to collect a pretty nice suit collection. Black Jil Sander 2.5b, grey Margiela 14 2b, TAT 1b, a couple odd sports jackets from YSL, Etro.

I'm planning on having at least 3 or 4 TAT suits before I move to Japan. I really want a 2-button in the Prince of Wales and the sack suit style in tweed.
