If you love it, and it sounds like you do, then best of luck! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

As noted, there are a number of factors, but if wool and Albert Thurston, I would shoot for M. If you go too long, then not only do the adjustors end up in higher than is considered "correct," but you also have to trim the ends. I would probably do M for any future barathea braces, if I had the choice.

M = 44"? There seems to be some sizing variation across websites

That's a cut-and-paste, so I hope it makes sense to you. Also the address appears to be different to what's on their website, so I might have got this mixed up.

I have not even the faintest memory of this hotel, so it can't have been particularly special. But I think it was quite well located.

Complete coincidence that both these recent recco's belong to the Best Western chain. I also stay at the Best Western Grand Hotel when I'm working in Mildura. Maybe I should joint their points club...
I hope it was nice. I recall walking into a ritz in seoul and asking how much for 1 night stay... I ran outta there as soon as possible and went to a chain called IBIS. Now when I go to Korea, I have a very nice place to stay.

I really thunk hard about it and bits started coming back to me. I remember the street frontage now, as I worked out how to take the metro from there to B&Tailor.

 

I also remember that I was on the 2nd floor, and that my room had a little gardenish balcony which I didn't really use.

 

However what I really remember is being taken to dinner by a couple of conference dudes, up on the top floor of - I think it's the Hilton, up on the top of a hillside with an amazing view, very close also to B&T. Then we did these drinking games with soju, involving placing the empty glass on one's head.

 

I seemed to impress them with my imbibition skills, but woke up with a monstrous hangover the next morning.

^ If that hotel is but a stone throw from BnT it's the Grand Hyatt.

Everyone gets the fatherload of hangover from that "stuff". The locals only know the remedie for it, is their advantage, some kind of antidote brew.

That's the Grand Hyatt. A bit dated but very nice. Stayed there over a weekend for my wife (then girlfriend) and my one year anniversary. They comped us an executive suite, which was nice of them. Very good views. This was before BnT had moved there though. And before SF. Otherwise, my response would have been "how much a night?!?! I'd rather get a jacket and an upset girlfriend"

You must drink 모닝케어 (lit. Morning Care) that night to take the edge of in the morning. Totally worth the four bucks it costs. Also, my autocorrect recognized "모닝케어" even though it is a brand name and not a word. That's how important it is.

Morning Care - how fitting.

And you certainly upped the ante on 'dvd hotel' with the GH. wink.gif

Fit is pretty good but I would be very worried about how the shirt looks or feels when you sit down based on how slim the chest/waist are. There's going to be some serious splaying of the placket.

Collar, shoulders, and top of the chest look good. I would relax the fit in the body. It's a linen shirt, for goodness sakes!

I don't know why but I never got hangovers...oh wait, I was the only idiot who wasn't drinking.

Korea used to be fun when I was an alcoholic. After I quit drinking, Korea stopped being fun.

@GuP I would say maybe shorten the sleeves a tad and perhaps slim the upper arm/biceps area a smidge as well. Other than that though, everything looks great, especially without darts. I would certainly not recommend going any slimmer anywhere in the body.

post #34619 of 37396
Crap, I figured this would be a decent place too. Sorry if this is too many luxire requests.

I did sit with it, and it felt okay I suppose. Not sure how it looked.

Can't relax. This is styleforum.

Thanks. I was thinking same. Perhaps a 0.25 inch decrease in bicep and sleeve length.
