I've never heard Claghorn say he hates that suit.

Noodles, if you have to wear a suit everyday and own a very small number of suits, I just don't see why you are selling since you aren't going to get what you paid for it originally and you're going to still need to buy one more suit than you needed before.

Yes. The act of selling this suit is idiotic. But I feel like the pants are too narrow every where compared to the jacket that is full. 

 

From the front, it all looks good but from the sides, the pants look too tight. And there is no more material to allow the trouser to be let out.

Interesting that Noodles is getting so much push back on what is likely a smart decision (as long as he is using the proceeds to buy another Formosa).  Everyone would be all over him if this suit hung in his closet for 3-4 months while he tried to lose weight to fit into it.  Better to sell it and get a new Formosa with the right size in pants with the proceeds.

If it doesn't and can't fit, time for it to go.  Good luck, Noodles.

3 or 4 months to lose 10 pounds? No way ...

But I see the point you're making.

Word.  We'd be telling new posters to bite the bullet and sell a great suit that doesn't fit (especially one that commands a decent resell price) in order to get one that fits perfectly.  Good luck with the sale, Noodles, and may it result in a suit whose fit you love.

I actually shed 10 lbs in about 1 to 1.5 months...:sneaky2:

Why didn't you just get them as raised as mine? First time you got them semi-spread. Next time, you got them spread (like mine) without the extra collar height. This time, you skipped my additional collar height and doubled it!

Noodles, you cray.

But there is also a possibility that a giant collar is going to be badass.

I don't own FC shirts. But I also don't own any charcoal suits nor traditional navy suits. Nor do I black balmorals.

Maybe I cray, too.

Naw dawg, the collars went from 1.5 cm to 1.6 cm. The collars look massive.

You added a mm to my collar and you think they're massive? Pretty sure you have a longer neck than I do.
post #22167 of 37428
You are nucking futs, Noodles. A mm difference in collar height is not noticeable.
post #22168 of 37428

$H!T - I added 1/2 cm. So it is 2.0 cm LOL

I'll take pictures of the collars and you guys can watch me have a picnic attack.
