Hard to argue with unbel after that pictorial. For most of it's clearly the best look there I would say.

Greg, please hire me to do customer service so I can tell people who are being ridiculous, that they are being ridiculous. I would also tell them, that if you're sizing questions are going to be that freaking specific, you are required to buy something. Period.

I'll add a quick comment on customer service emails : we get a lot of emails during the final sale periods.  A lot.  It seems like everyone needs sizing advice when we're on final sale ;)

 

The emails are queued and we try to answer them in the order received - which sometimes means that it can take a few days to respond.  That said, some customer requests are very labor-intensive for us - i.e. if you're emailing us with sizing questions on 9 different items and are asking us measurements for shirts A, B, C and D in sizes S, M, L and XL,  it will take a while for us to respond.  It's also very discouraging to have to respond to such requests - surely the same person could not need measurements for an item in S and XL... Taking an extra 30 seconds to figure out what size you may potentially be would save everyone a lot of time.    

 

I don't mean this to be a rant but maybe that will help sped up customer service response and unclog the queue if we have simpler emails to respond to and that we can do faster.

 

Thanks

Hi Greg, thanks for the update, fully understood. Take your good time. Although I do/did have a sizing Q or two (ok, 3 TBH), I plead not guilty in the case of ABCD in SMLXL. That guy has some nerves, or is just extremely "funny". Thinking of, his SF user name doesn't start with 'N' (don't mean you, Newcomer!), does it?

+1 Let's be frank. There isn't a thread with regular fit pics that shows back shots of jackets and trews other than the Ask a Tailor section/s, with some questionable entries.

In this regard one cannot help but feel being kept from the whole truth, we are stuck with ~50%. Some stated they didn't care what they looked like from the back. Good for them.

On the plus side, I'm pretty certain now what components are needed for and what qualifies as a good fit. Thanks to SF and its highly knowledgable member base. :thumbs-up:

Couldn't agree more. I'll post a back shot next time I wear one of my suits. I'm not one of those people that doesn't care what the back looks like. Even the slightest crinkle drives me nuts.

^ Your Formosa fit pics were/are all kinds of helpful for me already (also same sizing considered). Back shots would be the icing.
Reminds me, I did some below par ones in my 50R Minnis and found that the sleeve and body length were on same horizontal level, which looked a bit odd/off to me, which made me choose 50L for the next projects. Could imagine in your case the sleeves might seem to end lower than the jacket's body.

Glad I could help. I don't really have that issue with the sleeve length.

I did go with the 50L for the tobacco order though. The extra length will be a big improvement for me when it comes to collar to hem and hem to floor being 50/50.

not i so much. id like it to like nice, and it has to feel comfy on the back, but i have enough areas of obsession as is, so i worry less about what i cant even see.

Yeah, it definitely has to feel comfy in the back. I don't mean that is tight and stretched to the point where it can't ripple. I just get bothered if I have the slightest roll under the collar or the back of the arms look messy. I've had tons of RTW problems (especially with structured shoulders) because of my bad drop shoulder but for whatever reason, Formosa just falls nice and the back is pretty clean.

My m-m-m-megahaul from NMWA came in yesterday and while I'm lovin' the stuff, I may be larger than I thought. Normally, I'm buying stuff second hand and feel like if I can get it on, it fits, but now I'm provided with the rare opportunity to make some adjustments. You're a much more discerning lot than I am, so I beg your expertise on whether or not I should go up a size on this Camoshita suit, or, if not, what I should do with it tailor-wise. I just now realize I neglected to button it up.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Here're the pants. They're a bit tight in the thigh, there's a bit of pocket flare and the rise isn't as high as I was expecting, but the waist is, as normal, a little big but not so much that the pull tabs don't fix anything. I'm used to pants fitting like this but if it's not ideal or fixable, I'm open.



Much obliged, gentlemen. On a semi-related note, holy shit, this suit and the PEdALED adventure jacket are both just too, too good.
post #10300 of 16748

The flare suggests that you don't have enough room in the hips and it does seem a bit tight at the crotch. You should fold up the pants to your desired length otherwise it looks like a mess on the bottom and hard to tell. Fold it once up where the length hits where you want it (ideally, have someone pull down on it so it is straight).

 

I fear the top is mess at the sleeve and around the armhole. The jacket might be one size too small for you. If you raise your shoulders, does the wrinkling go away?

 

The color and material look quite nice.

Do you anticipate having measurements for more/all items in the fall? I feel bad emailing to ask for measurements on stuff (though certainly not in multiple sizes lol), but not bad enough not to do it. Having them all posted would solve the issue for all it seems.

Also - you guys have the best photos of any shop online bar none. Bought several items based on the detailed/closeup texture shots so thanks for that.

Yes we're hoping that we can find the time to measure everything.   That said we get plenty questions on items when measurements are posted, such as "Are you sure about those measurements? the shoulders seem ____ for that size! Please measure again", or "you listed shoulders, chest, length, waist, rise and inseam but how could I possibly buy it without a jacket half-waist measurement?!", or "can you measure the rise the way I do it instead of how you do it?".   

 

:D

I will add that we're happy to answer customer questions - we feel that it's a great way to get to know our customers, considering we don't often meet them in person.  

 

Just... that some requests may take a little longer than others...

Spoken like a true diplomat.

Hey Greg, when should we be expecting delivery of the Schneider Merino coats?
