I frequent AAAC more than here. They call it "Sammy" frequently over there. As such, I'm accustomed to calling it that. So please get over it.

Usually it's best to leave it alone- some tailors will do alterations at CB rather than at the side seams because it is easier, though not correct. In cases of prominent blades, swayback, very hollow waists, etc. it is an option.

Do you think it's a good rule of thumb to avoid tailors who will alter the CB seam without reluctance?

 

Do you(or anyone else) know if they offer models that look like this?:

That is pretty much spot on for what I'm looking for. It's not too suppressed like the Tom Ford's he started wearing, and has just the right width in lapels for my taste. Perfect coat length(sleeves a tad long). It'd be perfect if it had a ticket pocket. Boy...I really do love this suit...

That's a Brioni suit. It's a great suit, but there's nothing special about the cut per se. It looks like a classic or 'Roman' cut.

Oh I know. I read that they provided the suits for the first film. It may not have anything special about it to many, but I would wear a suit cut like that any day. I've found that my tastes are a bit more conservative than many SFers. But there is a lot of traffic here so I enjoy that. Would you happen to know of any suit manufacturers that can provide that cut/silhouette w/ full canvas at a much lower price than a typical Brioni?

I understand your intent, and the difference is, there are many references to "sammy" on SF and AAAC:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/315117/samuelsohn-mtm-advice

http://www.styleforum.net/t/289380/samuelsohn-mtm

 

You can find the AAAC yourself.

 

I'm unable to find what Brammy represents.

It's not an uncommon cut. I'm sure most companies can offer a similar silhouette (Canali, Corneliani, etc...).

just experiment and see what you like best.

Aww nuts, are you serious? I passed up on a Canali and a CornelianI on eBay just the other week that had perfect inseam and sleeve measurements(hard for me to find on eBay). I had previously read that they were less fitted than other brands and caused me to neglect them. I'll have to go in to a store and make sure I find a model that fits properly. Do you know which retailers stock them? NM & saks 5th(outlet)?

Saks.  Corneliani is one of the brands I was thinking of when I suggested you consider other cuts that have a more tapered waist and may need fewer alterations.

Ah, okay. Will the outlet version of saks have the mainline? Does anyone happen to have a model # of the inside tag? I will call and ask my local saks. Do you think Corneliani is on par with or superior to Samuelsohn? I saw Jeffery's post on Brioni vs a Sammy and was impressed with its construction.
