Yep.

My actual chest size (no shirt) is 37", but a 38 is too tight around the shoulder blades for me. I end up getting a 40 and having it tailored down to something closer to a 39. You're probably better off with a 36. No chance of trying on both sizes before purchasing?

People seriously can't/won't help with this?

I'm a pretty slender guy but with somewhat of a pretty board shoulder. Almost 18" I notice on top of 34 size are hard to find, their shoulder usually doesn't fit. I've bought a SC from Goodwill that claims to be 34, and it seem to be a 34 but there is no way to be sure, Goodwill does know how to measure their coats. I've got a size 40 before and it was tag 34. What do you guys think of this coat? Ugly? Too much? Okay? Need some input. It's a size 36 and with a 18 shoulder.

I went to my local Men's apparel store and I was told that I could get a Bespoke SC for around $450. I'd look into that if I were you.

This is quite an interesting view. I'd rather match my sock to my shoes. In fact I have a sock for a shoe or rather many almost the same of socks for particular shoe.

Hey, this is my first time posting on SF. I just had a quick question, I'm was offered Ralph Lauren Black Label Safari Shirt for $63, they're brand new and comes with tags. I was just wondering if it was worth it and how it'd fit. The pockets are what's off putting me atm.

I think it might be right. I have never own one of my own before but knows a friend that did and he confirm that moisture is not a friend of suede anything. Be it suede shoe or suede whatever.

Just my opinion: I don't like it, but I think it would look nicer if the broader stripes matched the thinness of the others. Those thicker stripes make the jacket look clumsier to my eye.

You should never match your socks to your shoes.

Ask this in the Streewear & Demin forum, this forum is for dressier clothes.

repost. Would love a little help, just a bit lost. Can someone give me a place for a primer on summer-weight clothing?

I've read a lot about summer fabrics here, but almost all in the context of bespoke tailoring. Do things like this come up on B&S later in the year?
