    If they have the R and you know your fit in the R, then exchange it for sure.

    Bummer.
    I guess I will feel it and just look at it for now and then ship it away.

    I actually like my suits longer in length like what @The Noodles posted so it fully covers what I'm carrying behind, but not to confuse you just exchange for a 50R.

    I have no ass to cover!!! [​IMG]

    Anyways, the suit is on its way back now. I can't do 50L. I am not tall enough and my shoulder ain't broad enough.

    Thanks! Just got that SC, too. Fits spot on, perfect. Wore it Wednesday and wearing it today. I only have two (nailhead wool navy blazer and this brown one) that I can actually wear well... Now what to get for a 3rd... Hmm... (after the holiday season)... I have to go MTM because my measurements are weird. I have mine nailed in perfect at KW.

    Sage linen goes well here in AZ. This guy will be worn, as well, but I was going for more 'warm' looks.

    To each his own. I was never a huge fan of any of the striped grenadines. But.. it's in my hands now... I will wear it. I could do worse.

    You should enjoy it of course and ignore naysayers. But since we talk about ties in this thread, as you know, thought I would weigh in. If it was in my hands, I would happily wear it.

    Paired it down to 2 just now. Now the chances of going from wishlist to cart are much higher!

    @Anden, I think both those ties are great looking. However, because I am a huge brand whore, and I dont really know much about the TYT brand, and for some reason the brand does not appeal to me, maybe its just because I think the name is so bad, idk, it just leaves me cold, I cant get myself to pay the $90+ price for their wares. On sale at like 50% off, maybe. Ymmv obvi because I am out of my mind.

    Where do you guys get your socks from? I've been reading around on the forum and Viccel looks good, but I'm after more patterns, e.g. houndstooth/herringbone/dotted etc.

    I like the patterned Brescianis, the plain cotton fil d'Ecosse Mazarins, and the wool Gammarellis - very luxurious. All over the calf, of course.

    I'm waiting for a fresh batch at the moment.

    I primarily use the interview to try to figure out whether they're a decent and interesting person with whom I'd like to spend time. Depending on what I'm interviewing them for and they're level of experience, I explore whether they have a vision for the position.

    My first impression of the Formosa P.o.W. flannel suit.
    Was surprised to see that the cloth was LP. Makes it even better.
    This will be my F.U. suit with my Sam Hober midnight navy grenadine tie.
    During the little time frame when I had the jacket on in my office, I got compliments left and right.
    Fabric is soft but not fragile.
    Fabric is not for winter only. But that's what comes to my head when I think of flannels.
    It's a beautiful suit.
    It's my favorite suit now.
