Maybe some of you are used to being told what fit you like, but I have a pretty well refined opinion of what looks good on me. A sales pitch isn't likely to change that. I'd have lot more respect for a salesman who told me he had nothing that meets my needs. I might buy shirts and ties from him, or pants, which are simpler to fit correctly. But if he can't tell a suit jacket from a Ringling Brothers big-top, I'm walking.

A 6" gap is normal. You just don't know what's normal and have likely not worn suits very long.

 

Shirts should also measure 6-8" larger than your chest

 

Knit shirt 4" larger than chest measurements.

agreed and then everyones definition of what "fits" is different. thats why I said a fit pic is helpful but they want to find you whats the best fit of what you need. IMO if you came to me and I didnt have anything I would go straight to MTM

You are complaining about salespeople that are getting paid close to minimum wage (or maybe $12/hr if Nordstrom) and wondering why they aren't strong salespeople/cannot find a better tactic than lying.

I mean, if you're so refined and smart can't you wrap your head around WHY you are having the experiences you are having?

Try going to a Zegna store or Tom Ford, who knows, maybe their sales people might be a little more helpful or detail oriented.
