    Have read here that Bradford suit cut is slimmer than Polo I, II, etc. Does it warrant sizing up (i.e. 42 to 44) and having trousers taken in or is the difference minimal?

    I wear 36 in Polo II and 36 in Bradford (tried on rather, never bought, pricing wasn't right[​IMG] ). So I wouldn't.

    I just sold a Bradford model PRL suit on B&S last week - although it was not my size, it was tagged as a 40L but most of the members who commented (I think Tony Romo was one) said the measurements were more in line with a 38L.

    Edit: Also, and maybe this was specific to the suit I was selling, but it had an 8 inch drop. The jacket was tagged 40L, the vest was tagged 40R, and the pants were tagged 32R.
