    Yup. Because I don't have any, because I don't wear any.

    In all honesty I can't remember the last non-funeral occasion where I even wore black, other than one spectacularly epic fail outfit about the time I posted that.

    Its a good thing someone talked me out of wasting money I don't have on shit I would never wear.

    What do you mean? Different brands have different measurements/proportions.

    I mean when somebody posts measurements of suit that he is selling, the measurements are usually provided like this:

    Jacket:
    CH: 20"
    SH: 17.75"
    SL: 25.25" (from shoulder)
    BOC: 29.8"

    Pants:
    W: 15.75" (2" to let out)
    R: 11.25"
    H: 8.75"


    I would like to know if there is a guide approved at the forum that can give comments on what is CH or SH and so on.
    Cause I'm kind of new to those terms. Thanks

    There is front rise and back rise. They will not be equal to each other. You can find conflicting instructions on how to measure, so when I give a rise measurement I specify how it is measured.

    Outseam - inseam, I don't think so. Consider that the actual rise has to account for the curvature used in the construction of the pants while inseam and outseam are simple straight line measurements.

    I kind of have a free night tonight and don't have to do much tomorrow, so should I finally watch Eastern Promises, which has been sitting on my shelf for like a year now?

    I could try to do some other things, but I am feeling rather bleh tonight. How bad/good is this movie? RESPONSES within next 2 hours desired!

    I know, there was vigorous debate over the subject in some thread a while ago.
