All S&M today.

Also question...has anyone opened up the chest on their coats? I'm b/w and 38 slim and contemporary. I think slim is better but I could use some more room in the chest. Wondering if it's an easy job on these.

I found that this is actually a good idea most of the time over sizing up imo. My spine rounds out toward the shoulders and it’s just more work to size up and take in the body and shorten the collar to adjust the fit on the shoulder and upper body. As long as there is enough fabric and you know where you need to let it out, why not?
Although maybe for more room it might still be smart to size up.
Also this fit is fantastic, I’m very jealous :p

I wish I had a better picture. Here is a contemporary suit (both jacket and pants). I consider myself skinny as hell but I enjoy every extra inch of room in that armhole. And mentioning the pants - I need every bit of room in the hip, thigh and knee area. If these garments were any slimmer I'd need to size up on everything.

I tried a slim pair of pants once and I couldn't put the pants on because the hip and legs were so slim. Power to the people who can wear them, they are truly slim fit.

Seeing a lot of pitti photos of the “summer tweed” fabric from die workwear. Any way @spiermackay can get a hold of some for a suit next summer with patch pockets.
