    I hate it when sellers can't measure accurately. 17" shoulders and 19" chest looks like a 46.

    Are the geller flight pants(uncropped) @ retail price worth it?

    How do the currnent ones compare to the older ones(black/olive) ?

    I saw that on SuFu - and I'm normally a 50-52 but jumping down to a 48 is a bit much! Was Geller really that off in his sizing back then? But judging from what you said I guess his measurements are somewhat accurate...whomp whomp for me

    I have stuff from early Geller and it fits slim but not that slim

    It could be a mislabel?

    Those measurements are like 3 sizes down..

    As I said, I only had to go up one size. His measurements are likely a little off - if it's a 52 it would fit a 50.

    Older Geller you'll find that the 48's fit like a 46. But this doesn't apply for all pieces.

    Does the denim only come in one cut? Sized up to a 48, loose around the waist, but skin tight everywhere else

    Also bought a Richard blazer in 48, the sleeves end 2/3 of the way down my forearm...

    ^hm. I'm contemplating a size 50, but at 6'1 w/ a 41" chest, should I be worried?

    That one.

    I have no desire for an even slightly slim fit. In fact, I would prefer it to barely touch me at all.

    Synth, 50 should be a relaxed fit on you, as 48 is relaxed on me (~42" chest). I'm two inches shorter, so you will probably have the same issue with the sleeves :(

    I got a 48, and it fits me "relaxed." For you, I would recommend a 50, or maybe a 52.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Different cuts. I've had the same sizing issues and sadly can't really wear Geller denim due to this.

    Thanks guys. Decided I don't want to gamble 300 non-refundable dollars on a polyester somethingorother that is not, strictly speaking, necessary for my survival. If anyone wants it, there's a 50 on Gilt for like 200$ if you're in the US.
