Rejoice. There is one in Boystown.

(I know everyone knows someone who knows someone that has been to one. But I actually know three people who've been to one. So now you're one of those people who knows someone who knows someone that has been to one. Congratulations)

Very sad.


On to other things.
I'm having issues with suit sleeve length.
I don't have any fit pictures as I'm having a couple of hickey freeman suits mtm.
I'm in dire need of good pictures of the appropriate sleeve length so I can talk to the tailor.
Thanks.

What are the issues you are having? Any competent tailor should be able to take some measurements, in a shirt if need be, and create something with the proper sleeve length.

I'm having issues deciding where I want my coat sleeves to end. I seem to have shorter arms(not T-rex arms ) than would be expected for my height 6'1" (don't know my arm length)
I wear a 17/35 shirt and even though I get measured it seems as if the sleeves fall past the shirts. Just was wanting some good pictures of what is considered good sleeve fit on some of our better dressed men here. I've read the forum and searched just not happy with what I've found.

I don't have any pictures to share, but I like my coat sleeves to end at the styloid process of my radius, or just slightly beyond.

Reminds me of one of my gross anatomy professors in medical school who used to juggle the carpal bones out of order in our practical exam and we had to pick them out in the air.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's the thing, sleeve length on a suit depends on a couple of things, not only on how long your arms are. For instance, most people would say that a suit sleeve should leave about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch of shirt cuff showing. This depends on how long you wear your shirt sleeves as well as the length of your suit sleeve. If you really must have a picture then I would say this is about right, but like I said, hitting the sweet spot is more difficult than just consulting a picture. Then again, it's easier to buy a shirt with the proper sleeve length than to get your suit adjusted.

WHY IS THE NOODLES THREAD AVOIDING THIS ISSUE!?!

haha I would have failed for sure! Our anatomy class sucked (we didn't even get to do dissections).

I am looking to get a pair of grey wool pants. Because I don't have a great deal of money to spend they must be 1) seasonally versatile (3-4 season), 2) able to be worn with a variety of outfits, and 3) cheap(er) meaning I cant afford Rota. After doing a bit of research I found Howard Yount to probably be the best for me but feel free to offer alternatives. Which between these two would work best for my purposes? I have 1 navy suit (jacket can be worn as blazer), 1 black suit, (yeah I know), 1 mid blue blazer, and a grey/brown SC on the way.

The second pair (light gray winter flannels) go with absolutely everything.  I wear mine all the time.

Just a personal observation, I have come to believe that medium gray trousers are a little more versatile than light gray. I find that, at least with my wardrobe, I often prefer a little darker of a gray with the dark jackets that frequent my rotation. Light gray provides too much contrast in many circumstances.
