You're the first person I've seen on Styleforum who hasn't jumped on the opportunity to wear something desirable and impractical WITH spousal co-sign. biggrin.gif

More often the conversation is around how to get spousal approval ... or hide it. "This velvet jacket? Oh I've had it a while."

I think she would happily sign off if I hadn't bought a lot of other stuff recently... maybe I will point it out to her and see what she thinks...or just spring it on her and frame ito as some kind of gift to her. "You always said I should get a velvet jacket! Because I love you so much, I did it!"

Why the bible verse?

Just wondering Ben and excuse me if this too personal question in anyway. But why is there a Biblical reference on the shipping box?



The Bible verse referenced is a blessing written by Paul in a letter to the church in Rome. For me it serves as a personal reminder as well as a demonstration of faith in honoring God in all we do at eHaberdasher by operating the company with integrity and in a manner consistent with Biblical principles and Jesus' teachings.

And it's not all THAT impractical:

Please let us know if we can have both shipped at once to reduce trips to the tailors/international hassle/shipping costs...

Yes they will all be available to ship at the same time - by the end of July was promised but we are aiming for the end of next week. Hoping to hear confirmation that all the jackets are completed any day now.

38 was too tight so I went up a size; tried it first before ordering 40. But now I still have doubts. Here are photos..not the best quality but appreciate feedback from all in fit.

Shoulder feels right, but perhaps chest is tight creating lapels to bulge and pressing shirt out. Also I'm 5-8 so going R or S was confusing.i went with 40s.

Do you guys think I should go up to 42 without increasing tailor work afterward? I like this suit very much so want keep trying before I move on. Thanks for feedback.

^ Thanks for posting pictures. This is what I see and others will certainly chime in

 

Pros:

Vents close nicely/ Bottom of jacket drapes well

Front of pants drape nicely

Arms in the front look nice

 

Cons:

Bunching at the rear of shoulders/back

Jacket too short

A lot of bunching on back of pants near thighs/knees

 

Can't really tell much from these pics about chest/bulging that you are referring to

Thanks for the feedback. First pics likely has best example of lapels sticking out. still not clear. I'll see if I can post more pics of the lapels sticking away from chest.

What would be the fix for the cons? Is it a size issue?

I wonder if the tailor can take in back chest to help with bunching, but my fear is the chest will become too tight. I wouldn't keep this one if I were you. I wonder what the 40R would look like. It doesn't exactly hurt to try a 42 either, but I like the shoulders/waist here. I can see why you're conflicted!!

 

Part of me wonders if sizing up for pants  and wearing them slightly higher on your waist could be helpful. It's hard to tell without a front pic of pants sans jacket.

I think that a decent tailor should be able to fix that without making it too tight, as it's just taking in excess fabric, and not too much at that as it's not egregious or anything. The pants may not be too bad either as the belt line may just need to be lowered in the back. I'd agree that it'd be worth trying the 40R.

I tend to agree. I think a 39/40R may be best for you and have it altered from there. How does it feel in the armhole? Is it a little bit tight? The jacket will start to give slightly over time as the canvas conforms more to the shape of your body, and the armholes will also loosen up a little bit as well. The blades would need to be taken in a little bit to clean up the back, but I think you need the length of a Regular.
