    Measuremnts: 22" pit to pit (layed flat) 31.5 length bottom of collar to end of coat 25" sleeve length (shoulder seam to end of sleeve) 19.5" shoulder 35" pants waist (you have 1.5 more to let out.) 29" pants inseam, crotch to end of cuff; (you have 1 to 1.5" more to let out). I seriously thought about keeping this suit, but I would have to shorten it, which I understand is an expensive alteration with mixed results.

    These are awesome. Wish they were my size. Probably better that they're not [​IMG]

    Went away for the weekend and had to go through like 6 pages of stuff.

    Wording on hat probably says "St. James's Street." I was thinking Jermyn because I know St. James's is near Jermyn and I was privileged in being able to walk around Jermyn in 2007.

    Seriously, if you're obsessing about it this much, is $20 really that big a deal? Does what we say it's worth or what eBay listings show for resale value really matter if it's something you really want?

    Brian. see if Uniqlo still offers their summer linen suits...

    A hundred bucks, slim cut, and in your size. ( You can also just grab the coat if you've already got the matching pants :D ) proxy it through Suddenlee or a couple dudes in SW&D B&S.

    Maybe you haven't been paying attention to what we do here. :D

    Just kidding, and of course I agree with Grendel - screw us, if you like it, buy it. I don't care that nobody commented on my $15 Borsalino last fall.
