Why do you get full break pants, noodles?
post #15062 of 37482

Yes. I regret that. I don't think you read before asking questions. I asked for a slight break and I got a full break. Terrible.

I measure myself and drop them off. As long as they cuff at the measurement I requested, I know I will like the results.

Correct. Maybe braces will work but I have no clue since I haven't worn one before.

Is the opposite of having nothing in the back having something in the back or nothing in the front?

In my case, the former. For jrd apparently, he suffers from the latter.

Fair enough. I guess if the OP's market has a Nordstrom's nearby, he could try Canali. Do they sell Hickey Freeman? Kulata's suggestion seems to be worth trying.

 

Agree on grey/black herringbone. YMMV on Gray. I'd opt for gray/blue herringbone myself (so more slate). But combinations can be taken care of after the more important fit issue.

 

Yes, I have access to those, will give them a shot and take some pictures. @kulata, I'm assuming eidos in the soft shouldered category?  Bummer, I really like their fabrics.

Yes, will do.  Today was more casual.

@jimb my advice was based solely on that single picture which shouldn't carry too much weight since picture angles can be funny and you were wearing a really small jacket. Post more pictures of yourself in different jackets and maybe my recommendation can be disregarded.

Take a look at the Formosa Crew: Murl, Stitches and Noodles. Especially on top (e.g. Noodle's pic). Compare with your pics and look for salient differences (chest, shoulder, length). Look for clean lines, no distortions, smooth draping of the fabric. Look for where you want lines to be straight and where lines are curved in a way that seems right (cf. the Lorenzo fit in Eidos or any Liverano fit for some nice "curves"). 

 

Also, look at Noodle's pants which alas do not match the top in cleanness of fit. I suppose one thing that will help is having the cuff set higher so it falls with almost no break. Sorry Noodles; get that fixed.
