    I do not know what the SA got me. I just know she got me all 40. Some may be R and some may be L. I only tried Spalla and nothing else.

    The longer ones are probably Rs and the shorter ones S.

    Yes. Did you really leave the store without buying this one? Go back and get it.

    Doodals, go back, do a full on pic with it (is this part of a suit?). But definitely looks very promising from this pic. Just chiming in here late in the game. You want to see how the trousers fit too if it's part of a suit. But everyone is spot on: it's your cleanest fit posted here yet.

    While I am glad to have found something that fits me well, I am very frustrated at the fact that I invest so heavily on Zegna. At least I wont be making such ill advised decisions.

    Not unimportant, Noodles: how does it feel? Do you feel comfortable in it? Can you move freely without any restrictions?

    Rudals, sunk costs are what they are. Your mistakes are less expensive than others that I've seen around here. It sucks to feel like you've wasted money on something, but it happens sometimes. It's part of the improvement process.

    I feel comfortable. It feels like there's generous room.

    This is key to a well fitting suit (of a certain cut). It looks like there is no room (though not tight) and feels like there is a great deal of room

    +1. Take any salvage value you can get and consider it a lesson learned. Continuing to dwell will only hinder your progress to SF immortal
