    I agree that this is probably too short, although if you're concerned about length, I am a strong advocate of a full length shot. That's really the only way to be sure as some of us have longer torsos/legs etc. Rule of thumb etc. are ok starting places for figuring out length, but proper length is a mix of different variables.

    But unless those are low-rise trousers, the button stance is probably too high. I'd advocate also for a wider lapel if you can.

    Edit: btw, that shoulder is cleaner than in the Isaia suit you returned. I was surprised Despos didn't comment on that. But you can see the difference, yes?

    Since there is such a largesse of spirit on display here, I wonder if I can solicit a fit opinion on recently purchased Mazzarelli and Inglese shirts (NMWA). Started with 16/41 in both, then added 15.75 in Mazz, when 16 appeared too big overall. Must I gain approval from Style Council (Weller fans take note) before posting fit pics or shall I fire away? Don't want to distract from the very real and pressing needs of the headline act without his say so. Could create a new thread, but it seems so warm and fuzzy here (and, obviously, good natured), plus the advice seems pretty solid and straight forward. Need to decide which shirts stay and which go.

    I say fire away, but I am more of a lurker thus far.
