Hi Everyone,

I need some help. I measured my chest and I am basically a 34 and I am very slim. I did try on a banana republic monogram (tailored) suit. I did like it, but the jacket was too long (length and the sleeves. Do you guys think I could get it tailored?

I guess my question is that I measured myself to be a 34, and I am short (5'5) ( I don't know if that means I am a Regular or Short). But I do not know where to find a decent suit.

Any help would be great.

if the jacket were shortened the pockets would be too close to the bottom.
it sounds as though you are a 34 short.
most manufacturers will make your size. its the stores that will not stock sizes that do not sell fast.
there are stores that cater to smaller sizes. you just have to find one.

Does anyone know of any stores that might have this (in store in NYC or online stores?)
