    Also interested in this tuxedo but I was put off by the shoulder measurement. Could you please tell me what the shoulder width (and if possible the pit-to-pit measurement as well) on your 36R is? Thanks in advance!

    Does the Napoli have slightly larger shoulders than the Sienna? Or is it the shoulder padding? Curious because I wear a 38 in Sienna and Havana, but have never tried the Napoli (though the trousers may be too slim for me anyway).

    I'd say its mainly the padding.
    Also, in the 2nd pic I'm not fully facing the camera.

    I think I've seen that one in person. It's very blue, almost light blue.

    Your Sienna looks very different from mine. It hinges a bit on the top button and has very closed quarters because of that. The lapels seem to be bowing a bit as well. For comparison:

    Hahaha, it would be uncanny if we had the exact same build. My problem is usually the opposite, quarters that are too open. I was just wondering whether there's anything a tailor can do about closed/open quarters? Or is that your preference?

    I see what MonkeyFace means. If I may, I also find a subtle difference in lapel shape between your suit and his. Notice how your lapels have a slightly curved shape while MonkeyFace's Sienna lapels are straight. I find odd that a suit from the same cut looks so different on 2 people, even given the build difference.

    The lapels have the same shape, but Crat has a bigger chest. This usually causes the lapels to bow a little, giving them a curve shape. It's hard for a tailor to change the shape of the chest, so the most cost effective thing would be to size up. However, that might cause the shoulders to be too big, which is much worse.

    Simply put, the Sienna is probably not the ideal cut for Crat's build, but I am nitpicking a little. The cut isn't the best for me either, seen as the quarters are a little too open for my taste. Nevertheless, I happily wear my Sienna, and I suspect Crat does the same.

    Yep, most of my lapels are a little U-shaped rather than V-shaped when the jacket is closed. This is indeed due to my chest.
    Not a big problem imo as I wear jackets open most of the time anyways.
    Not perfect but I can live with it.

    It's at the tailor right now, but I can tell you that several key measurements on my 36R were smaller than what was on the site - shoulders probably under 18", chest about 40", back length 29-29.5". Those are approximate, but already are pretty different than what's on the site.
