    Yep. There were two restocks of the navy birdseye. Noodles got one 50R. I grabbed the other. Looking forward to it!

    Yup. I've only been wearing suits about twice a month and I usually grab it both times.

    What size is that suit? If I remember correctly, you are one of my possible team mates in buying a Formosa since I need a 48 jacket and the pants that come with the 50 while you need the opposite.

    I've got a navy birdseye. I didn't even know it was a navy birdseye until it was pointed out here.

    @Isolation WRT tailors in Vancouver there are none of note...but more importantly...DUDE it is an absolutely amazing spot, don't waste your time on tailors and go explore the great outdoors!

    I thought the 48 jacket came with 48 tagged pants, but it's the 46 jacket that does. MTO for me.

    Skinny he is, most definitely.
    Them pants I got from him were way too small for my fat@ss to fit in.

    Can you inform me on what determines good or poor horizontal twill? I don't see any threads on that.
