If I could choose again I would definitely size up although they get looser as the day goes by because I’m assuming the linen “stretches out”do most guys size up and take in the waist on these (I'm 30, it says 2cm smaller, so like ~3/4 in smaller in hip and thigh but waist/leg opening are still the usual measurements)?
I own it but haven't worn it yet, so I couldn't tell you my experience yet.@bicycleradical @DonRaphael
Gents, I understand you two own the full canvas John Cavendish Neo suit. I, too, own it as well, and want to hear more from you two about it. I’ve only worn it once, for a 2.5-hour presentation back in November 2020. I really, really, have high expectations for it and desperately want to like it. In fact, I thought I’d be reaching for it more often than I do. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. I have issues with the trousers and the quarters seem to open to me. This is even after having much experience with Neo sportcoats in the same size, which I love. I want to believe the suit cuts a dynamic, flattering silhouette on me, but I just ain’t seeing it with this one. I may have to chalk up the L. Or, I could be trippin’. Was there an adjustment period for you two with this suit? Hoping to initiate some dialogue so as to help me potentially see this suit in a different light and embrace it more.
What a fantastic collection mate! That brown M&E houndstooth is also one that I considered - really great choice.
Thanks mate. I'm really happy with all jackets.What a fantastic collection mate! That brown M&E houndstooth is also one that I considered - really great choice.
Curious what alterations your tailor will be making to MTO jackets - did they come in off spec or is he making adjustments that aren't available through MTO?
