Not the CEO, but I wonder if a Director can wear this...
She's already stashed couple of thousands in cash into her tin can box that she hides from me. I call it the black box. Once it goes in, you never see it again.
Aren't you a professional man of numbers, Noodles? Why don't you go hunting on Fleabay for some good suit pickups? Use the chest, shoulder, and length measurements you know fit you. (18 to 18.5 shoulder, and 21.5 inch chest, no?)
Then you can get a NMWA Formosa in the fall.
But you need some cheaper, well fitting suits in the mean time. I'd imagine that your coworkers have noticed that none of your suits fit... What the heck have you been wearing now that you sold your well fitting grey Zegna?
Please refer to WAYWRN to see what I wear everyday.
The measurements on the grey Zegna that you sold me were used to purchase the NMWA suit. All the measurements were spot on. The shoulders, chest, and length. I don't understand why it fits so differently. I felt very comfortable in the grey suit
What are the measurements?
^ I'm not following The grye Zegna that fit you well measured something like 18.5 in the shoulder, 21.5 in the chest (doubled p2p = 43 inches A Formosa 38R measures 18.1 in the shoulders and 41.7 in the chest ---- therefore, it was about 1.25 inches too small in the chest A Formosa 40R measures 18.9 in the shoulder and 43.3 inches in the chest Again, these metrics are just guidelines. Different brands will fit differently. Some might have more room in the front ("drape") or back of the jacket. The NMWA/Zegna measurements explain why the 38R didn't fit you in the chest/waist, and the 40R fit Thinking in terms of measurements will help you get into the best fitting jacket possible if you're buying on the internet http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/inde...-wales-single-breasted-suit-11oz-flannel.html
@gdl203 does that sound about right?
The only major difference that I see is in the chest. If so, what if I freaking cut down on the weight. Drop like 15 lbs?
Per NMWA website
Per the measurements you sent me
^ Still shows it was a half inch too tight
Friends and foes of orange/rust ties, what say you to this (I believe) new offering from Shibum? http://www.shibumi-berlin.com/Ties/Linen-Tie-Rust-Hand-Rolled::259.html
i bet clags approves
I say you order two...one for me; one for you.
Then drop 15 lbs, become a stringbean, and stop wringing your hands on this thread about how your 38r's don't fit.
Even tho I'm not a fran of orange ties, I would take a gifted orange Shibumi tie too
You're probably not that fat that it significantly affects your chest, as most men don't deposit their fat on their chest.
