I'd like some sizing advise for sports coats as my body type is similar to your's (bigger-man) , what brand gives you the best OTR fit so only minimal money is spent on tailoring?
Having trouble getting something that fits in the shoulders and is not super tight.
P.S. Looking sharp as a tac :)
skimping on tailoring is a big no no in my books.
i've just spent $80 getting the sleeves lengthened and having the sides taken in slightly on a navy sportscoat. money well spent, irrespective of the price of the jacket. if it improves the fit, it's priceless. you gotta pay to play. there's a book you should read that will hopefully inspire you - Glenn O'Brien's How To Be A Man.
