    Indochino Suit - Fit Check

    I am very new to wearing suits. I've been very interested and have been doing research lately, most of which AFTER I purchased this suit. I have since read the Indochino horror stories posted here, but in the beginning I saw some youtubers post very positive reviews. Before I get completely...

    Frustrating fit problems

    Hello, I am a short and stocky guy and as a result, my measurements are pretty dis-proportionate: Jacket/Chest: 44 short Neck: 17 1/2 Arm: 31 Pants: 38 x 29 Because of this, I accept that almost everything I wear will have to be shortened (sleeves, pants hems, etc). This means that I can...

    Roger Stone's attire

    I wrote a piece about Roger Stone's attire that I thought the SF community might enjoy... I regularly get requests to do write-ups on the attire of public figures. Lately, one person in general has dominated the request line – infamous political strategist and recently indicted peacock...

    Why do 40 size suits come with 34 pants?

    I have a 32 waist, and it's difficult to find a 40-sized suit with pants that fit me. It sucks because you can't really do anything with baggy pants without ruining them. What do people in a similar situation do? Do I just need to stick with certain "slim" designers?

    Suit Jacket Length R vs. L

    Is there such a huge different between R sizes and L sizes among men's jackets of the same number size? It seems the difference is usually an inch or so... and I understand that makes a big difference for anal-retentive perfection who inhabit this forum ( ), but given that people choose to wear...
