    As I get a lot of comments about my too tight fits, I have a question for you guys.
    This is a 40r blazer (I usually wear 38r). It does feel loose for my experience, how do you guys think the fit is (forget about sleve length and excuse the crappy iphone pics)

    Still looks too tight to me. I also hate the shoulders, but that's beside the point.

    edit: Sorry for the repetition, I clicked "quote" before seeing the other replies. I think the three rapid posts, all in agreement, do speak volumes, however . . .

    ok. can you give me some hints where you think it is too tight? I think the shoulders fit pretty well and there is no button pulling.
    Funny thing is, I went to the shop with a friend today and he said that the sc was too big on me... I'm a little confused...

    Don't listen to your friend.

    I've never been more excited to see a Timotune fit after the past few pages of written diarrhea.

    The chest, see how the lapels are bowing outwards? Suits are measured by chest size not shoulder size. Between one size there is little difference in shoulder width. If the shoulders are too big when it fits easy in the chest you have to look for a different cut/brand.

    Thanks all, I really appreciate your help!
    It's kind of depressing to slowly realize that every suit / sc I own is clearly to small for me.
    Working in a very slim-fit-loving workplace seems to have had some influence on me ;-)
