Would you wear a Tom Ford peak lapel suit?
I tried once, no way on suits made by Tom Ford. Maybe their causal and leather jacket.
That can't be right. It looks like they applied the drop (I'm guessing -7) to the chest measurement and not the size to get the trouser waist measurement.
^^ It could be that they are taking actual natural measurements, not size measurements.
Eg; 37" actual waist could be like an advertised 34" waist.
I'm a 33"/32"/31" in trousers, but that isn't my actual waist size.
I'm a 36S in all suits I own, with the exception of a Lazio cut suit from Suit Supply, which I'm a 38S. So their sizing may be slightly different to other brands. Good excuse to take advantage of the cheap shipping/free returns and get multiples. I ordered a 36R and a 38S to be on the safe size. Glad I did, the 36R is smaller than any other 36S suits I own!
I bought a Napoli plain in 38S and it had a 35" waitst on the pants. I had a tailor take off a tad over 3 inches off the waist
Weird with the size chart. I typically wear a 32 pant and didn't need to touch the waist of either of my 38R Napoli's. However, I did take in the waist on the most recent jacket. I wonder if that chart is supposed to be showing the jacket waist measurement, not the pants.
I just looked at the charts, they are really all over the place between regular/short/long. A 38 has the biggest waist in order of short-reg-long. But a 42 goes short-long-reg.
Washington D.C. store opens August 30, in case that hasn't been mentioned.
yea when Im in DC in Oct I'll stop by and check it out..
Just checked out several images prior to answering this.
No, I wouldn't. Maybe I'm not not a peak lapel person. I would not wear it just to say I own something that's Tom Ford.
Am I the only one who thinks it is annoying that they don't release their entire fw collection at once ? I wrote customer service last week to enquire about flannel suit options and was told they would be added by the end of the week, but so far nothing....
Thanks for the reminder. Will try to go to the opening party.
Anyone been to one of the opening parties? Is it worth going?
Chicago was incredible/packed/awesome - had 300+ people I believe
Mailman brought two sizes of the same suit.
Which one do you think fits better (sleeve and pants-length obv. have to be altered)
Or do you think none of those fit particulartly well?
