Definitely go with the 48 then. Winner.
Is that the windowpane or the solid Minnis fresco?
I thought you returned yours?
Guys, I'm telling you, my fit is NOT perfect. Take a look at the back of tchoys recent B&T suit...that's what I call perfect. I will never get that with RTW, but Formosa is a damn good fit for me. Don't get unrealistic expectations from one crappy picture I took that really doesn't show the fit all too well. I think Rudals and AJL will be looking just as good if not better after a trip to the tailor, but yes...I do have a big grin because I love these suits.
I have not returned it. It's still the best suit that I have. LOL
I will hold it for now.
FYI I'm also about the same height as you (though my license says 5'8" ) and I never even thought to consider a Short in Formosa.
No, I don't have that blue plaid (yet). Happy to take your 48 off your hands if you want to send it up north.
dang, you gentlemen are wearing 50r at 5'8" -ish?
I am 6' ft but wearing a 48r. I do have a longer torso and shorter legs though...
Yeah and those 38rs fit you very poorly.
What? No, my better fit is the 48. Which is why I'm happy to take the 48 that's too small for you off your hands.
i hate u
i hate u too
It's the windowpane, aka subtle plaid, 11 oz H&S. Procured for purposes of fit only, though now I'm wondering, hmmm...
Nah, pants are too tight, just checked. I'd have to go the mto jacket & pants separates route, though I believe that ship has sailed. Besides if I were going that route I'd probably opt for something like the 11 oz birdseye or Minnis fresco, were they available as mix 'n match.
Not that this isn't a lovely suit, just wouldn't be my first choice given the other options.
Okay, fellas, I can take a hint, sheesh...:tounge:
in about 5'10 in my 54R. fat boi ftw.
isnt murl like 6'8 or something?
6'3", I wouldn't want to be 6'8". I can pull of the 50 using the hand cup and ass cover rules, but not the BOC to floor. My legs are too long so that never works. If a L was offered, I would buy it, but my R is nowhere near Thom Browne territory so I'm good as far as I'm concerned....which is all that matters.
FWIW, I would've never guessed you're a size 54. You look way more slender than that. Kudos to your sense of what fits and flatters you(r body)!
