So now I'm looking at those Formosa suits and I really shouldn't be considering how often I wear a suit. But sizing thoughts... 48 looks like it ought to work for me based on jackets and trousers I wear (generally 40 and 34 respectively) but I thought 40 and euro 50 typically lined up so I don't know a about ostensibly sizing down on this.

i would not size down on formosa, they are cut pretty trim. i am usually a 52, sometime a 54 and i had to go with a 54.

I agree do not size down on the Formosa suits.

Want to avoid same. Suspect I'm in between M & L, but being 5' 7" and not especially trim, want to avoid both overly long & sloppy and sausage casing effect. Assume waist and sleeves are banded like crew and v-neck? Would the latter 2 fit similarly?

re: Formosa navy birdseye. Damn, I love that suit, but it's too long. Can the coat be shortened approx 1" w/o screwing up the lines, balance, buttoning point, etc? Anyone have a measure for the coat waist?

 

I'd say L on the Inis.  Yes crew and v-neck are the same body with different necks.

 

Not sure about shortening a coat 1", especially given the reasonably low buttoning point of the Formosa style...  Re waist measurement, which size are you looking at?  50?

Ok. So let me ask a different way. If I am wearing a jacket comfortable with a 20.5" chest measure and 17.5" shoulder, marked size 40, would this most likely be a Formosa 48 or 50?

I don't know how those shoulders are measured - seems narrow to me - but focusing on chest then, I'd say Formosa 48 (if chest is measured exactly how we do it)

I meant crew and v-neck same fit as cardi?

Was looking at the 48, since the 50 jumps up nearly 1" on the shoulder, but more importantly, you don't have it in stock. smile.gif
OT-Frankly, I'm mystified by how easily folks here seem to be able to fit things OTR. Am I restricting myself too much in terms of range of measurements? (I think I know what those measurements should be, reasonably well...) Can one wear an 18" shoulder in one cut and closer to 19" in another, and have both jackets fit well? Anyway, mucking up your thread; its a monologue better suited for the hand-wringing pathos of the Noodles sartorial retard thread.

Thx Greg, carry on.
