    You are awfully insistent on a pic of the guys rear...[​IMG] [​IMG]

    post some full length pictures, its tough to really know if your accurate with that without full length pictures.

    Yes, its shorter than a normal DB jacket, but I like that. I am not crazy with typical DB jacket length anyways.

    I may be mistaken, but isn't it relatively easy to enlongate a DB jacket since the hem is straight across?

    I have no idea,maybe someone can chime in.I am going to ask my tailor,maybe he can do it.But I would rather not do it,what are the chances that the jacket will get messed up?

    I think the suit looks great. I don't mind a shorter fit, especially on a double breasted; keeps it more modern to me. I wish I had been able to grab a 40 R in something
    As others mentioned, it fits well and the price is wonderful. But, I disagree with Morningstar; I think the double breasted-ness of the suit calls more attention to the fact that it's a bit short.

    Any one else with first hand experience with RLPL 'custom fit' suits and sport coats?
    (in regards to how they fit)
    I see a couple currently listed on eBay that I like. . .

    rlpl's st andrews custom fit is my favorite fit hands down. natural shoulders more so and less horizontal shoulder. more fitted in chest and flared in waist. such a beautiful silhouette

    I have two RLPL custom fit suits. One in a grey windowpane, 2 button, and another in navy stripe double breasted. They are my favorite off the rack suits. The pants are generally slimmer and flat front with a shorter rise. Also the jacket is about 3/4" shorter than the regular length for that size, and more suppressed in the waist I think. Can't really comment much on the shoulders, but they feel pretty natural to me.

    Any one willing to post fit pics to satisfy my curiosity. . . ?
    Also, are there 'custom fit' sport coats/blazers?
    (I haven't come across any on eBay so far.)
