wow thanks guys! ok this is going to sound bizarro but i just tried it on again and it's way too tight. not sure how just 2 hours makes that much of a difference but i'm definitely feeling it bind up a lot more in the armholes and shoulders. i guess i truly am a 52—or i gained some significant muscle mass this morning lol.
also the pants here are the bigger problem as far as this suit goes. seat, waist, hips and crotch are all pulling like crazy. i'd have to let it out in the crotch, seat and waist at least (to say nothing of whether that would fix the hips). not to mention i have no use for a fresco navy suit.
i ordered a whole bunch of stuff—brands i've wanted to try for a while (and possibly get in on preorders on) but which i had no reference for sizing. inglese, rota, formosa and this. didn't want to take advantage of greg too much on his shipping policy so i waited until the eidos drop to combine it all into one gigantic order. i only did the fresco suit bc i wanted to see how the pants fit in addition to the jacket, not to mention just to see fresco (never handled it before). same on rota (interested in the fawn flannel in addition to how they fit). same on formosa (interested in fit and fabric—tobacco linen). inglese was more of just a fit thing.
