Was that an R? If so, definitely try an L. I'm 5'8" and could wear a 36R Havana and nobody would think it is too long.

I am really surprised how you guessed my size perfectly haha.
justonemore, regarding covering ass, here some more pics, it looks covered (grabbed some suit pants, the type of jeans I wear make my jacket look too short).
Thank you so much for your advises gentlemen!post #32751 of 333805/28/16 at 10:42ampost #32752 of 333805/28/16 at 11:00ampost #32753 of 333805/28/16 at 11:20amQuote:
I just want to look best i can. It's really not easy though. I started reading about men style just month ago. Well if even a full time employee from a respectable suit company cannot see that jacket is clearly too small then what can I say.post #32754 of 333805/28/16 at 11:48ampost #32755 of 333805/28/16 at 11:56ampost #32756 of 333805/28/16 at 12:52pmpost #32757 of 333805/28/16 at 12:55pmQuote:I like Suitsupply, but a lot of their employees have no idea what they are doing. Many of them are young and "cool", with little experience. When I bought my first Suitsupply suit, I got tons of varying opinions from their staff, many of them disagreeing with each other. The first guy I had, he tried to fit me into a 38, saying it looked better, and what a disaster it would have been if I paid $800 for such a tiny suit for my frame. I had to wait an hour to get serious fit and alteration counsel from one of their employees who knew a lot more.
I can't really blame them for anything other than probably paying their folks less than they could pay, and thus attracting lesser experienced sales people. And of course, the first guy was probably just trying his best. He was trying to get the suit to fit my midsection, and not the shoulders lol.
Fwiw, I have come to prefer a shorter jacket than other people do, and I don't have my jackets cover my bum all the way down. That's not traditional, but despite the fact that I am tall, I have shorter legs and a longer torso. Getting higher waisted pants (like the Italians) and a slightly shorter jacket I feel balances me out. I also have a bigger head, and again, when I wear a more typical "perfect" fitting coat, it all makes me top heavy and I don't think it works out as well as it would otherwise.
But that's me, it is what I prefer.
But looks like you have narrower shoulders and bigger hips, and I would agree with the previous post, that I would NOT want to eccentuate those hips.
If you have that many hours at Suit Supply, then you should observe and find out who is the best salesperson and ask their guidance. The jacket in your picture pulls at the button.
I also own several different fits, including the very slim Copenhagen. It's probably slimmer and shorter than what most people care for, but i like it only for my cotton summer jacket. But when I go more business or for work, my favorite cut is the Sienna. I also have a Havana which is the most comfortable fit, for a more laid back professorial vibe.post #32758 of 333805/28/16 at 12:58pmSo I bought my first pair of black boots, the AE Daltons. It was on a whim--won a lowball offer I didn't expect to win, when I was looking instead for brown.
Any thoughts on what I could wear with these black brogue boots? My only other pair of black shoes are AE park avenues that only come out during formal affairs, so I almost never wear black shoes, much less brogues.post #32759 of 333805/28/16 at 1:04pm
I'd parimarily wear them at night, with a black belt, jeans or gray wool trousers, and maybe a black jacket.
