Hi. I've been lurking for a while and figured I would chime in, not only because I have plenty of questions but also because my wallet stops wincing when I'm typing instead of looking through online catalogs. Recently, I've been taking advantage of eBay, which is a great way to get clothing of the wrong size shipped across the country to your doorstep for far less money than the same clothing of the wrong size would have cost at a retail store. The present culprit, from a very reputable seller, is a Corneliani Trend linen suit (half-canvas, decent material, armholes too large, FIVE sleeve buttons arranged in a pyramid, $150 shipped with bonus necktie). It was a size 48 (European), which is my size, except that it's actually a 54, which isn't. Interestingly enough, even though the shoulders are 19.5 inches wide, which would usually make my head look like a pin, the padding is so thin that it took me a minute to realize how far off the size really is. I don't think I'll be able to get the pants taken in by 7 inches, though, so back it goes. The reason I know shoulders wider than 18 inches normally give me a pinhead is that I recently had to return a Land's End suit as well. It was the right tag size, but their traditional-cut suits apparently run larger in the shoulders in addition to being, despite what their catalog copy claims, "boxy." For $150 (overstock) the Virginia Year'Round suit is still a pretty good deal (fused, obviously, but decent 100% wool fabric for the price), if you're some kind of broad-shouldered Trad or something. Returning two suits means the only one I have left is a black pinstripe three-button wool/lycra-blend suit from Men's Wearhouse. (Yeah. I know. Now.) At least it fits, mostly. Anyway, eBay isn't all bad. I got a great Brooksease herringbone sportcoat for $20 that I wear a lot because it fits so well. And I've found some good deals on Allen Edmonds. Speaking of which, the last pair hasn't come yet and the seller deleted their account a few days ago... It's almost enough to drive a guy back to actual stores.
