    So much hate [​IMG]

    They're all size 38R that SF council has deemed as ill fitting. I agree. Shoulders are too narrow. I cannot even button two of them 'cus I got so fat. [​IMG]

    'SuSu' always makes me laugh because that's how kids say they need to go pee pee in hindi.

    Also, try 2-3 different sizes for the jackets in SuSu. The PRL jacket you posted looked better in the chest than the SuSu SC you had posted.

    Also, also: Start working out brah.

    I was gonna start swimming until I saw the trunks that my wife ordered. Spandex tight showing what little I have. But I agree. I haven't worked out for about a year now but will do this week.

    How does spandex tight work with the plaits?

    My new company profile pictures came out. But just have to say thank you all for this. Just look at the improvement since 2012.

    Forgot the suit, the biggest improvement is ditching that 70's Craig Sager hairdo.

    No hate here, noodles.

    I have a hard time seeing suit supply suits workout for someone with a pear-shaped figure. But I have no experience with them, so I'm kind of talking out of my butt on this one.

    Noodles did you delete the RL photos? Can't see them anymore.

    New work picture looks great!

    Yup. That was one of many things to go when I met my wife.

    Thanks! @gdl203
    Now, please help me look better with Formosa navy birdseye!

    I know you kid. I think SuSu will be a nice fill in between the Formosa suits. I don't know how many I will get this Fall but what other ligit and affordable alternatives do I have? $500 for a nice looking suit, I think I'll take it. My company does have a 15% off Corp. discount with BBros but I've yet to find anything that fits me well.

    Get a double breasted suit. They're the nicest fitting suits from SuSu. The Lazio and La Spalla are nice as well, but most other stuff is too slim/too high buttoning point. The Sienna can be nice, but is probably not the right cut for you.

    Wow. A DB before I get a solid staple collection of suits?

    Noodles, that before and after shot is honestly quite impressive. But Jesus Christ how does any one person warrant 900 pages of advice? At 900 pages I'd hope you now have Ambrosi making house calls, know how to hit a G-spot from 1,000 yards and are fluent in 10 languages...

    Worth noting my last contribution to this threak was (somehow?!) 700 pages ago, so I may be out of the loop.

    Yep. The lazio you showed us doesn't fit well, so that's not an option. The la spalla fits well, but it's too close to Formosa in price. The other single breasted suits aren't really worth it at full price. So that leaves the DB suits. Or just wait for Formosa/go Steed MTM this week.

    Curious to know why you say that about the other single breasted suits. Is the Lazio that much nicer in cut than something like the York? I do understand some cuts like the Havana are shorter than the rest, with a high buttoning point, which is undesirable to some.

    Here's a quick question that I know will get shot down immediately. While the Formosa s are undoubtedly expertly crafted and look fantastic, are you wasting your time if you have a build that's far enough off average? I'm always tempted but with a 10 inch drop I feel I'd have to alter the silhouette and have issues with the trousers. While I'd love to add some neopolitan flair to the rotation I can't help but think I'd look better in mtm or bespoke. Note there isn't a Formosa within 1000 miles of my location
