    I can't understand why a tailor in a prestigious department store recommended I take 2 sizes up? Any size 42 jacket is always sloping off the shoulders. Thank for the input.

    I bought something similar years ago at Old Navy for $20. I wore it once or twice. In retrospect I could have gotten more out of it.

    Sit and watch the suits some day as they walk up and down Lex or Madison.

    I'd say about 80% of suits are too big in the shoulders.

    Believe me I have, more than 90% of men are badly dressed. He also measured my waist to 35, and I comfortably wear size 32. I need a belt with certain 32s.

    Size looks perfect to me.

    That "tailor" is just used to people dressing badly and people not knowing the difference.
