Damn, the 245 model seems really, really, really slim.

Clags chart looks alright, but sprouts own measurements confirm my fears. Not made for us giants.

Thanks for your help, Sprout. Really appreciate it!

Yeah, it is. Don't worry. There are other models (see above -- made a clean table).

I'll keep adding information as requested.

Probably not made for giants, but again, there is a huge variety of models. Also, a MTO using Model 253 as a basis could also be a starting point.

Which one most similar to SuSu Lazio 38R?

Side note, I can't tell if any of those pictures are 3 button.  

Context/intent: "It was a men's fashion magazine for the clothing trade, aimed primarily at wholesale buyers and retail sellers. Initially it had a very limited print run and was aimed solely at industry insiders to enable them to give advice to their customers. The popularity of the magazine among retail customers, who often took the magazine from the retailers, spurred the creation of Esquire magazine in 1933."

Added model 236. Seems roomier and has an extended shoulder.

I could see myself compiling all this data this weekend.

@Monkeyface @yanagi

 

Figured out the problem. The msmts I copied were from a particular boutique notorious for everything super slim (Guji, you may have heard of them). They were using the same construction as model number 245 but modified to their taste. I went back and checked the official msmts for model 245 from Ring and they are completely different. Updated the tables.

 

Note: a "model" here defines construction and specs, as in dual vent, three roll, etc. The measurements should stay constant if buying direct from Ring retail.

 

This will be something to double-check when ordering. Not just "is this the right model," but do the msmts line up with expectations. Fortunately, measurements are always published online for each item, and they are obviously there to be checked in-store.

Whelp, jackets are shorter than suits by almost an inch. I guess I'll try a suit from them at some point.

Can I get a full body pic of you Claghorn? Intrigued to see the hem of your jackets.

I think this is the most recent full shot:



Awkwardly looking over a railing:
post #26053 of 37395

First one looks good, second, your middle looks a little attenuated.

Also, based solely on the last several photos posted in this thread, it seems solid ties are making a comeback on SF and we are moving away from fancies?

What about the hems did you want to see?

I don't know, just a sanity check. My tailor revealed to me that he has been suggesting slight shortenings of the jacket length on the last few commissions and that I have been agreeing to it, resulting in a 1.5cm change.
