All of those suits seem thrown off by that (though I know it's entirely correctable and normal). I agree with ChetBakerSings on the last suit for sure, it looks like you're swimming in it a bit and though a good tailor could bring it down, it wouldn't be worth it I'm sure.

 

Um...in those pictures I rolled one sleeve up and one is down as it still has the tag and wouldnt fold... My arms are different but only by 1/4" or so. biggrin.gif

 

I agree, last one felt much bigger....figured I'd post it to get opinions though.

Ahh, makes more sense now.

My feet have always been about 1,5cm different, but lately they feel like they're two entirely different sizes. I hope this isn't what happens with age shog[1].gif
