    Hey guys,

    Could you please tell me about the cut of this Oxxford Suit? The tag reads:
    Gibbons 28th notch. The pants are a 36 and I'm a 32. Is this alteration doable?

    It's a standard 2 button with a single vent btw.

    Slightly longer jacket; slightly longer waist; fairly lightly padded (could be virtually unpadded if it was a special order) shoulder, with armhole on the smaller side IMO, and ever so slightly elongated; some waist suppression, but you'll likely want some tailoring if you're a 32 waist. The pants are going to be a problem, unless you have muscular legs. Not only because cutting a 36 to a 32 is very difficult (and possibly very costly), but also because the rise and the leg width will be all off.

    thanks for the info. I'm about 6 foot tall so I'm just a borderline 42L. Do you expect that the jacket might be a bit too long? What would it be 34" or so(top of collar to bottom)?

    You'd want a 42R, then. I'd anticipate the 42L would be about 32.5 to 33" from the bottom of the collar.
