If I were trying to buy some of this stuff, where would I look? Is this just mainline GA? What should my ebay search be?

Also what is the sizing advice for something like this? I'm normally a 38L in tailoring but is this something you size up on or does TTS give the intended fit?

Sorry that was a lot of question marks.

Mark Owen from Take That in the loose fitting grey suit on the right. Great look IMO.

Cheap eBay find, TF era Gucci, sleeve is definitely too long (didn’t know sleeve is functional when I gambled) but don’t want to spend the $ to alter from shoulder so wear a bit see how I feel about it

you're 6ft right, sleeve might be good for you, pretty sure jacket would be too short for you (I'm only 5'7" on match.com type of height... think in reality I'm like 5' 6.9"...)

edit: this might fit you, though phineas cole lapel will be a lot smaller and definitely higher gorge

edit: couple more rando

I'm curious how you found these so quickly. Do you have any saved search terms or anything you could share?

There are a few brands I care so

Gucci Tom ford 46 (I see people tend put EU size up)

Phineas Cole 36

Ralph Lauren purple label 36
Ralph Lauren purple label 38

Tom Ford 46 (you still get TF deals but rare)

Thom Sweeney (didn’t bother with size since so few)

Anthology

Husband Paris

Barbanera (for boots)

Armoury Ring Jacket

Attolini

Then make sure you show worldwide and narrow down to suit + jacket in case people put in the wrong category


You can setup eBay alert, same with poshmark/realreal/Vestiaire for buyee I just do manual search

I wanted to try the new "relaxed" fit style so bought both 36 and 38 jackets. I can't tell which is better. The 36 fits closer and neater but maybe the 38 is the good one as it might be meant to look extra baggy? Neither is meant to look fitted as there is no structure and the sides go straight down. It is a new casual suit look so maybe you guys can tell which is the better look for me please? Thanks

I think the 38 with shortened sleeves would be good.
But please don't wear it with a shirt and tie like that, that thing should be paired with tees, casual knitwear and sneakers.
