    Hello All,

    I received my recently ordered suit from Gilt today. I purchased a 42l and received a 42r. What do you think? In my amateur opinion it is fine. Do you see something I don't?

    Thanks in advance!

    By the look of those pics I'd say Gilt got it right and you made the error. [​IMG] I wouldn't take the L over that. Sometimes things work out!

    I see that a long would have required more extensive alterations. I'll let the more forensic minded posters assess the finer details, but it's basically the right size for you

    Looks like the fit is pretty near perfect.

    Gilt knows what you want even before you want it

    I don't want to start a new thread... But I don't quite get Gilt. Is the whole point you have to log on exactly when the sale starts and furiously buy things before they sell out? Also, when it comes to suits, how do you find your size that quickly? I'm looking at the Hickey sale, and there's nice stuff but nothing in my size and nothing available.... Maybe I'm missing something, or the point. Can someone explain?

    the higher the demand, the harder it is to get it. very complicated

    They did the same thing to me. Sent me the wrong size. Not a very good sign that they did it twice. Even worse sign was that after I had told them that I ordered a 38S and not a 38R, they sent the return form indicating that I had ordered a "38 slim." yikes

    I also purchased one of the Hickey suits, it's being shipped now. In the upper right corner they have a size filter. That's the best way to find your suite quickly. You also must log in at exactly noon EASTERN TIME, find it and buy it quickly.
