This winter I picked up a new HF suit and a couple of HSM sport coats after being inspired by SF and the many posters of WAYWN Part III. I am now pissed that I didn't pay closer attention to the fits, and now I feel like my fits suck and it bothers me every time I wear them. I am not sure if I am a weird build or what but I have dimples in my jacket sleeves probably one of many issues. I believe there are only a couple of tailors (100 miles away) that might be able to fix the problem if I want to invest more money. The guy that fit me at the store had 30+ years experience and didn't say anything about this. I can't believe he would be that interested in making the sale instead of getting me the proper fit. I am also perplexed as I don't think I could have fit overall in a different size jacket. I am wearing a 42 and have a few old 41s that are too tight. I am wondering if I will ever get a good fit OTR and at this time I am not interested in spending too much money since I don't even have to wear a coat or suit except for the rare DC meeting or wedding. I am considering going back to my old self wearing jeans or shorts and polos.
Actually I wonder how most people keep posting here when they are clearly outdone by some great looking regulars. This place has made me feel like I look terrible even though around here people only recognize that you are "dressed up". I doubt anyone where I work would recognize a marginal fit to be any less than a good fit and are they clueless to the finite details of combining textures, colors, tie knots, collar spreads, collar length, and all of the other minute details that a lot of SFs pay attention to. SF probably ruined me! This is just pissing me off!
