Yes, this is a notorious problem with S&M. I recently had a tailor take in the bicep area and the end result was good.
How much did it run you?

I am contemplating returning it, but not sure yet.

Anyone else have bicep areas that are too loose?

Yes, I'd like one! I have a S&M order arriving on Wednesday. Is anyone keeping track of how many drops there have been this month? This is like the fourth or fifth one. I really wish they would just drop all the new stuff at the beginning of the month or something. This trickle out approach is killing me.
Better to keep the money flowing in. :)
Threw on the S&M full canvas Neo suit for my doctoral dissertation defense today. First time wearing this suit and the occasion calls for something special.

Tie is Drakes for Paul Stuart. It’s one of my favorite foulards.

Trews could use a bit of work to drape cleaner, especially behind the knee.
Congrats, Looks like you slayed it!

Anyone know if it's possible to get sleeves on MTO sportcoats slimmed? I don't see any option for that in the sizing section

Congratulations! That’s a big moment when your reading committee calls you “doctor”!

Like the guy said, known problem. Look at a lot of the pics esp neo that guys post, you'll notice arms that look too big relative the rest of the portions. All IMO, of course.

As I wait for S&M BF sell I have a question for people familiar with Suit supply. I know it always a repeated question but how does suit supply havana compare with S&M contemp SC size? I reviewed the size chart and the measurements looks the same but I would love somebody personal opinion. I wear a size 44r in S&M. I was gonna grab this too but the matching trousers seem to run much smaller than S&M trousers. Is there much luck with letting out their trousers in the seat and thighs?View attachment 1503016
SuitSupply Havana is SMALLER/TIGHTER than S&M SLIM. I have a bunch of both, and this is always the case. In fact, I would reckon that the Suitsupply Sienna is closer to S&M slim, and the Sienna is still more trim, but much closer to the S&M slim.

I just got a contemp zignone from Spier in the same size as my Havanas bought this year. they feel the same to me in chest and waist and the spier length being 0.5cm shorter than havana (which is correct to the size chart not factory error). The spier shoulder feels slightly bigger and sleeve width too. The havana suit trousers may be the soho cut which sucks (very small in thigh width and rise)

Got my slate blue check suit in today (went with contemporary fit). Blue is more pronounced than online images show, in a good way though. Loving the look of it and subtlety of the pattern. Will take better pictures tomorrow when there's some natural light.

Some quick fit pics. Unbuttoned for first two, buttoned for last. Would appreciate guidance on where adjustments should be made. Upon first glance, the sleeves probably need to be shortened some.
