UC...if Alan’s 19.5” leg opening is proportional to the length of his shoe, do you think one could extrapolate one’s ideal leg opening from his shoe size? How can one come to the ideal leg opening without endless and expensive trial and error? Is there a formula?@bernoulli, I believe that, at least in American English parlance, RAF blue or cadet blue describes the color of your suit more accurately - cobalt is a stronger blue, more like that of the suit which @Betelgeuse posted today.
I agree that @Alan Bee new trousers look splendid, but the fact that he's tall with long legs, and a well-developed torso may have a lot to so with it - I am not sure that I could pull off 19.5" trouser bottoms at 5'8" and my extremely late middle-age dad bod. I am curious, though, about the braces shown in the photos - buttons on the back, but clips in the front - were they the property of the tailor, and used for fittings, or are they the style of braces intended for use with the trousers as made?
Yes. Just do it. And you will also gain around 1cm more for the sleeves (a tad short imho)
I vote keep the pads. They are not overdone. As is, there is a nice slope to the shoulder, and I like the proportions. Leave it be. Oh, and I think your sleeve length is fine, too.
Where can I purchase a RAF blue suit OTR? I always thought colbolt was more or less a tacky shade of blue.
