    Hi all,

    Long time lurker, first time poster!

    I recently bought two BB Fitzgerald suits during their Corporate incentive sales. I got the 36S and 36R to try because I wasn't sure of my size. Since the pants is practically identical and fit well, I only took pictures of the jackets.

    36R is Made in Italy. 36S is Made in USA

    Aside from the sleeves, is there anything I should be looking to tailor ?

    Thanks all for your help!!

    We can't possible judge whether the length is correct without full length shots, including your legs.

    Short, take the waist in, it needs it.

    Thanks for marking the pics to make it clear which one is which. The best possible advice I can give based on this: The one which might be the short one looks better on you. Adjust sleeves and waist.
