    That's literally Dior 17.5cm level tapering, so hoping that measurement is off or it's for the sleeve or something. I need like 7.5 inches on a dress pant to have it not look stupid

    Damn Yoox and their horrible pics, goofy descriptions, and lack of sizing. At least it's only $6 to try on... cheaper than gas and parking to go downtown to try on a suit, haha


    6.6" refers indeed to the leg opening and is not unusual for a Raf Simons suit, even though Yoox's measurements aren't always dead-on. I've tried two different Raf Simons suits so far ( one from Yoox in size 48 ) and none of them measured more than 7.0" at the hem. But, yeah... "With at end" is quite inarticulate. When I switch to the German Yoox site and check the exactly same suit it says "Saumunfang", which translates to "hem circumference" though and should clear up your doubts...

    Why don't you go with that one ? -> http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/RAF+SI...J/sts/sr_men80

    Personally, I prefer the smaller lapel and also don't mind the 1-button on such as slim, fashion-forward suit. Plus the leg opening is 7.0" and hence a little wider...

    Thanks for the information. I'd go with the one you linked, but unfortunately I'm a 36 / 46 Euro. I just switched over to the Japanese site, and they listed the hem as 17cm, which is slightly more forgiving and in line with some other slim pants I own. I'll just have to wait for it to arrive

    Damn. I could swear the 1-button version was still available in size EU44 about 45 minutes ago. I mean... although that's still one size too small for, I wouldn't have posted the link in this case of course, since your obviously not a EU52, i.e. a fatty. [​IMG] Yeah, the suit you've ordered is also listed as 17cm at Yoox Germany and the 1-button version as 18cm...

    no, raf suits after f/w 07 are made like shit. no comparison.

    Are Raf suits similar to what he does for Jil design/construction/fit wise?

    Any reason to kop/avoid??

    Basically, this suit in my size:

    Both size 36 DVN suits I've tried on have had 31" waists with an inch or so to let out. Not sure if this helps, but I hope it does because I knocked over a bag of jelly beans getting that measurement If you call Nordstrom Bellevue at (206) 628-2111 they stock DVN and are pretty helpful if you need measurements

    Any reason why? (other than Raf going to shit design-wise)

    size 50 has a size 34ish waist and was probably 40 inches across the chest, did not bring a tape with me but that is what it seemed like.
