    I'm so pissed to see all these awesome deals on solid navy blue suits in sizes that aren't mine. A new navy suit is literally the only thing on my "have to have" list. :cloud:

    I'm cheap, and I keep telling myself the suit I bought off of theWGP (more recent Isaia label - base s- solid navy aquaspider) will work :laugh:

    I get it today, so if it doesn't work I'll be buying this one :)

    You are a size 40? What are your measurements?

    Ah, i was going to say, if this size 52 Isaia doesn't work for me or someone else who called dibs I would offer it to you. Do you usually wear a size 38 jacket?

    I just sold a solid navy "grenadine alomost fabric" HF suit with those exact measurements like 6 weeks ago on the B&S - sorry :embar:

    I am in the same boat with pretty much the same measurements. It is rather annoying.

    It's very subjective to the maker, TBH and I can get away with 18.5 if I want a more off-the shoulder look. Of what I own, I'm a 50R/40R in BC, Isaia, Sartorio, Armani, Belvest and Samuelsohn. Then I am a 38 in D&G, PRL, RLPL. Then I am a 41 in BB Fitz. I really just go by my measurements and not by marked size. As you can imagine my searches run from 38-42.

    I will keep you in mind for this Isaia then if it doesn't work for me.

    If it makes you feel any better it's like a 42 VERY L... 26.5 is 2 inches over my sleeve length and regulars fit me well. 34 inch length is either including the collar or 4 inches longer than regular.
