You're correct. Each similar article in different fabrics will measure differently because of the wash process that the garment goes through before distribution. Additionally, it's how you measure. Steven and I are custom fitters as well, so it's all in how you measure and from what point to what point do you measure from.
However, if you were to take the time contact TBB and maybe establish a relationship with someone there, I'm sure the guys there would take the time to supply you with the measurements that you need to make a purchase.
Gary, what is your experience with baker sizing in the navy twill this season? Is it running smaller than usual and warrant a size up perhaps?
Definitely more suppression than past seasons. I've always looked at Baker as their true sports jacket fit. For the portly, you might want to size up.
Yes! That should be OK. Remember to turn delicates inside out and button / zip them up. This prevents abrasion from agitation wearing away surface texture and design.
On that topic...could I also get away with washing a tropical wool garment in that manner, or is that strictly dry clean only?
Kind of a misconception about wool never to be washed. Wool has seen water from the animal to the washing of the fiber to the sponging of the cloth. We wash as much wool as we can be are leery about particular articles that might have a sophisticated construction ie. waistband, fusibles. However the common sense question to ask is how is this going to look when dry and will you be able to press it back to its original presentation. In regards to the soap we use and sell at @Drinkwater's, it is Eucalan. We sell the essences Lavender, Eucalyptus and Grapefruit. All moth inhibitors.
so gary, are you in favor of washing the tropical wools? or dry clean? how do you recommend it be pressed back into shape?
