But you look beast in Formosas dude.

Again, Monkeyface looks beast even in the three piece.

Making mistakes is not a bad thing, as long as you learn from them.

I had a Kiton which I bought on sale a year into my SF internship, I wanted it to work so badly but it just was not the right size. I butchered it a bit trying to alter it to fit, and had to let it go for cheap. It was an expensive lesson, but life goes on, and a hard lesson was learned...

U gots pix?

I have closet full of mistakes right now lol

Noodles, we all have skeletons mistakes in our closet. I hope that lessens your pain somewhat. ;)

It's part of the learning process, as JS says. Maybe it would be a fun idea for a Friday Challenge: post a fit with your most expensive mistake. Could produce an interesting haul of trainwrecks :D

Yeah I jumped all over Suit Supply before learning about buttoning point and their cuts not flattering my body. Picked up 3 suits and a SC. One suit gone. One more to go. I think I'm going to keep the 3rd. I like it too much... peepwall[1].gif and the SC I wear unbuttoned and it works.

I'd buy a Stitchy swimsuit calender.

DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER!!!

But yeah, who wouldnt really.

Um, I wouldn't?

If we were to do a "most expensive mistake" Friday challenge, would we still vote for the best fit or for the biggest trainwreck?

So, yeah, Havana's buttoning point is too high even for me. Toooo bad :(

How much higher is it than your mtm? Pics?

I have one Havana navy blazer, but I'm not a big fan of the buttoning point either. The Lazio has a lower buttoning point than the Havana, but it doesn't have patch pockets or odd jackets. It might be an option if you're looking for suits. I wear the same size in all cuts.

It's about 3cm higher than my mtms. But the length overall is fine. I'm guessing Havana is obe of the longer of their odd jacket models?
