RLBL suit models: difference in fit?

Just curious, for those who have actually tried on both the Anthony and Austin models, how do the fits compare, specifically in the trousers? The Austin looks to have a more natural shoulder, but I can't tell whether the fit itself is truly different (and therefore would require a different size, or may not fit altogether). I can wear the Anthony OTR with just slight trouser tailoring (to give a little more butt/leg room) but want to know if I can legitimately consider both cuts.

Narrow trouser and shorter rise.

The coat is shorter and the lapels are smaller. Too thin IMO as the Anthony's are slim enough. In all a more fashion forward suit.

Sounds like the cut would work for a casual sport coat, perhaps worn with jeans (how I typically wear them) but not for a suit. I much prefer a more classic look and the Anthony model is about as fashion-forward as I'd go.
