This tie is a lot smaller than normal. The point of it goes to my belt.

They are too small. It's very tight in the shoulders.

Naw, I think 3 was too much. I will stick to 1 or 2.

It's really not. I had it taken out as much as the fabric would allow, and it is still too tight in the shoulders and waist.

Also, what size do you usually prefer?

It is made by Zara, and was originally a 40R. I bought it on eBay and they sent the wrong size. I had the jacket taken out in both the waist, back, and shoulders, but it is still very very tight. I think I had the sleeves taken out as well.

I normally buy a 42L. Previous to this site I was buying a 44L.

Normal size suit worn 42L, I have some 44L but I am getting them tapered.

You should either be a 42R or a 42L. Look for suits with a 6inch drop.

I agree. 42L usually fits better in the armholes, plus with R I often run out of material to have the pants cuffed.

It's highly likely that your idea of "very very tight" is different from other suit wearers because you're used to wearing such boxy ill-fitting potato sacks.

I don't know if this message will ever sink in, but there's a fundamental difference between the feel of a suit and the feel of pyjamas.

Au contraire. A well tailored suit can feel just as comfortable as a pair of pajamas. Especially if said suit is worn with braces instead of a belt.

Ah, but I didn't say it can't be as comfortable, just that the sensation is not the same. And as it happens, I already agreed about the braces. So there.

^^^ Fair enough.

hard to tell exactly how well the body fits, but that suit is NOT too tight in the shoulders. It is pretty easy to see where your shoulders end and they end around the seam, meaning the suit fits properly in the shoulders. Your shoulder is not poking out in the arm fabric, so it is in no way tight.

I'm not sure what happened to the original pictures. I havent used that FTP site for some time but it still should be active. I'll see if I can get them restored.

In the meantime, here's from Sunday:

Its incredible to think that this is a huge improvement considering its still pretty terrible, but I remember seeing those original photos and damn were they ever bad.
