    I'd say, 6' or over; I don't think you are, correct me if I'm wrong. I mean, by all means, wear things the way you want; I was just nitpicking.

    Love this topcoat. Cashmere/wool blend, feels like a dream. Sleeves may need to come out a teeeeeeensy bit, admittedly.

    Hello Kevin. I have been in Japan, love it there! Anyways looks pretty cool, but the picture is not that great and detail pictures as shoes, tie and so on would be great!

    and i am 6'1"
    ...

    but i know i don't look as tall as i am
    i get it all the time and i've figured out why ... because i do not have long legs for my height
    which is partly why i get slightly shorter suit jackets ... as that makes the legs look longer (by making the torso look shorter)

    which is also why i shied away from the 2" cuffs and settled for 1 3/4"
    since that could make my legs look shorter again, counterbalancing the shorter jacket
    i got 1.5" on my last suit and it was not enough
    i am happy with the 1.75" cuffs now

    I know how you feel. I'm six two and people I've known for years think I'm five nine..

    yea you definitely don't look your height either
    but then again, i'm too distracted by your serial killer stare to notice much else :hide:

    i always get the double take when i stand next to someone
    "oh, i didn't know you were this tall"

    I saw Romeo in real life and he looks tall.

    Regarding your new suit, I like the fit a lot, but not so much how short it is and how high the button stance is.

    would a L length jacket lower the button stance a bit? or is it only going to be longer at the bottom while keeping the button position the same?

    The newer milanos seem to have a lower buttoning stance (see mine from this tuesday, it is by no means low, but lower than yours I think). That being said, I think you the body type to pull it off no problem. A long may help with those balance issues though. I will try one myself in the future and see if it helps at all. The length on a R is 29 from BOC, maybe a L would be 30 or 30.5?

    I don't know about that. I'd think that R-to-L affects both the button stance and the length, but I just don't know.

    Pretty cool, in that skin-tight and flashy Japanese way.

    Is that the tail of the tie extending 3.5 inches past the tip?
