I've found several suits recently at the thrift store, one of which I'm quite torn on. It's a Daniel Cremieux (high-end around here) medium charcoal 3-button SB. It has the hand-stitching detail along the lapel. Anyway, the pants are ok, just need taken in a bit, but the jacket needs some work. My best guess is that it's a 44L or 46L, whereas I wear a 42L and still need that size brought in at the sides. But this jacket is easily 1.5" longer in the body and sleeves that my other jackets. From the lower pockets up it proportioned normally, and it's presumably OTR so I have no explanation for the length. Is it too much to bring the body and sleeves up by that much? I like the cut of the suit but don't want to hold on to it if there's no real hope of getting it to fit and look right.
