    very few options for tall guys with big necks shoulders but a narrow waste. boo has the perfect shoulder/chest/neck measurement, an awesome taper.. if only it was like a LITTLE longer.

    epaulet is good. so is H&M for dress shirts.


    Have you tried BB extra slim fit? Tails are longer b/c they're made to be tucked. Some of the styles are a little dowdy, but for a basic OCBD can't be beat for the end of year sale price...

    Jacket looks pretty good, not overly slim, but pants DESPERATELY need to be shortened to a single break (1.5 at most),

    and while you're at it throw on a 1.75" cuff.

    Tailor pants to have a slight or no break, no cuffs

    well, shit, how do I decide? Can I cuff the pants at home to see? Will that look anything like what a tailor would do?

    See this is why no one really listens to you on these things. You just suggested he maintain a long and sloppy pant leg yet add a cuff, which would actually make it look even worse. Like of all possible suggestions you've found the perfect storm of bad.

    Fits you well- I'm a 40" chest and the same height as you, would I need to size up to a medium to avoid terrible pulling? I like those hernings more and more but at their lengths I'm thinking they're just not going to work for my build.

    Wouldn't cuffing reduce the length of the pant leg?

    in the end it comes down to personal taste. To me, it's not long or sloppy, that's breaking perfectly on the left leg, and just looks a little weird because of how he's standing on his right leg. With a cuff, it'll break nicer cos the extra weight will pull the break down and make it one break rather than a collection of half breaks.

    anyway if it ends up something similar to this but with a slightly bigger cuff, you and i are on the same page. If not, well, i guess i just disagree with you.
