    Still too tight (upper back as well as chest). There's another problem visible in both suits - dents in the sleevehead, maybe due to square shoulders. Frankly, SuitSupply might not have anything that fits well on you.

    The jacket looks to be too small in general for you. I doubt this is a problem you'll solve by choosing another fit. The sleeves are also too long, though that's a problem more easily rectified.

    Try taking the next size up, and try the short size while you're at it if you aren't doing so already (or pick the normal if this is the long).

    Thank you guys for the feedback. I wish I could make the suits work but I am going to have to go up to a 42R or 42S but SS wont let me go with the smaller pants so I am going to look for separates from another brand. :( Thanks again for the thoughts! Chad

    Fixing pants is much easier than jackets. It's pretty easy to slim pants. You never know, you might need more room in the thighs if you squat. I figure you lift, given the size of your chest.

    I would need a 42 size jacket and that would come with a 36 size pant. I would need a 32 size pant to fit properly. Isn't that quite a difference for the tailor to work with? Maybe not??!!

    Jesus christ man, you're a drop 10?! My lord!

    Forget OTR then.

    SS offer a MTM service, which you might be interested in, but there is probably better MTM out there for the same price point.

    Well, I did tell the wife that I could quit working out and start eating fast food everyday and then the suit would fit. She didn't like that idea! :D

    Is it still possible to order the Manhattan tuxedo from SS? If not, does anyone have a good alternative?

    Is that the midnight shawl collar option that they had only in stores a while back? If so then I am curious about this as well (including good alternatives). I've been looking for something like this for a while with no luck.

    It was an in-store exclusive, although I've heard rumors that it may be joining the regular lineup in the fall. I unfortunately don't know of any RTW alternatives that have a similarly robust shawl collar.

    I think it's directly integrated their next F/W collection (as opposed to what it was this past year - an exclusive). Not sure you can still get any now.

    didn't know they had in-store exclusives, damn makes me wish I was closer to a store. just ordered a navy washington and a lazio 3p, keeping fingers crossed about the fit.
