I'd agree that if you are a 31 in waist size, the pants from a 38R Formosa are more likely to fit you. In any event, I think visiting Greg when you are in NYC next and getting his thoughts is probably a good idea.

Yup. He told me how to do measurements on the trousers. 

 

Oh the drama in my SF life never ceases.

Shoot, I really have hard time finding sunglasses that fits my fat head. 

 

Me too.  But I guess we need to store our enormous intellects somewhere, right?  Apparently it's a biological indicator of social dominance too, which is why beautiful women agree to marry us.  Don't knock it.

I actually don't know how my wife looks to other people and don't really care.

But she is the most beautiful girl in this world to my eyes. 

Big head pretty much means you're a freaking genius, like you and me. :lol:

In fairness, Sloth from The Goonies and The Elephant Man had a big head as well.

I don't know what the "Goonies" are.  But John Hurt shagged my aunt, and she was fine back in the day.  He was called Vincent Hurt then. (Movie trivia geeks - you're welcome).

get the suede. before i had a suede belt i wore my suede shoes with a similarly colored calf belt, but now that i have a suede belt i cant imagine going back.

oh FFS. the formosas are fantastic and are not a "full" cut. also, you can always have Will Fields nip them a little bit and give your jacket a little more shape. i did that with one of my formosas but i left the other as it came.

once you get yourself into a great looking suit you will understand. all this over analyzing is not helping you at all. too many voices too much noise.

You did the right thing. Now go buy it and take pics.

Hey all,

 

What do you guys think of this fabric for a casual suit that could potentially be used as separates? Sort of like what @Claghorn does?

Luv, is it a dark blue? My screen won't reveal!

Hope you're well.

luv, no on the suit separates. Too worsted and shiny. Shouldnt be used interchaneably as a blazer

You need a fresco, hopsack, etc or something with texture. No fine worsteds

Do you think it would make a fine suit that wouldn't be separates or just bad fabric all together?
