Purely comfort. Waist expands slightly after meals and when seated down.

Side adjuster allows you to keep it just tight enough (1/4” left+right).

Although it’s always a little unsightly to adjust them.

I don’t have much of a belly, just curious of your opinion.
Have no opinion on this. It's totally subjective and personal preference.
Either fit the trouser to be comfortable when sitting or bloated or for the times your not.

How's the length of this jacket, according to you guys? Unfortunately, I didn't take any more photos. Would love to show the back part too. Does it look well in the front overall? Also, I went with "regular" lapels this time. The wide option is about 1,5cm wider. Would that be too much for me, as I have a rather small frame?

Lower back is awful. Is it due to excessive waist suppression?
Can't say much on the jacket apart from it being a bit short but I believe you would benefit from narrower turn ups.They seem to be way over 5cm and it doesn' look balanced.

Hi guys,

Just got this SC from the Armoury and well… the overall fit isn’t bad, maybe there’s some excess fabric in the chest area (it’s a Model 11 and is supposed to be an homage to the American sack cut and therefore shouldn’t be too slim) but the collar and lapels are “meh”. What do you guys think? Is the whole balance off or is there something that can be done by my local tailor to fix the gap and the lapels that aren’t leads hugging my chest like they should?

If you need extra pictures just let me know!

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I’ve contacted the Armoury as well and they might also give me some advice in the near future
