    That's really nice plus the hood is super practical. Are their measurements accurate? I like the Eidos ulster coat in casentino but an IT 46 has 19.5" shoulders unless it's really a US 46. Did they ship USPS and were you assessed duties and taxes?

    I'm between 48 and 50 in Eidos outwear and take 50 in field jacket and hunting jacket in FW weight so I can wear sport coat/thick sweater.

    I went with size L in NR as per store recommendation (Greg and Kyle are great to deal with, just shoot email to customer service).

    You can ask for USPS as shipping method but I get hit with both, duties and taxes almost every time. When I'm not too swamped, I ask to ship to my Niagara Falls mail box and just pay HST when bring jawns back.

    Browse NMWA thread, there is some more sizing advice for NR as well as their other stuff.

    What kind of shoes does Holts carry and at what prices? I have a $200 Holts gift card. All I have seen in the past though are crap Prada stuff etc.

    What else would be worthwhile to use the GC on there?

    They sold Cheaney at the $700 mark but I don't know if they brought any new styles. Their fire sale of the remaining stock leads me to believe that they did not do too well.

    Berluti goes north of $2000. Definitely one of - if not THE - most expensive RTW men's shoe brands on the market.

    I saw a solid black grenadine tie at Holts. You should get that.

    I had my tux done there at the beginning of January. Standard alterations for a new jacket/pants, plus shortened the jacket by 1" IIRC, and brought in the waist a bit simply by moving the button. Everything looks great, so if that's all you're having done there should be no issues.

    Sweet, did you happen to remember how much he charged? Will probably bring by a couple pairs of trousers as well for waist/hemming.

    I don't have the breakdown...my total was about $300, $100 or so of which was the jacket shortening, and I think $45 for working buttonholes on the jacket sleeves. The rest of the work on the tux was sleeve hemming, pants hemming, letting out the pants, moving the button on the jacket, and adding a buttonhole on the lapel. I also had another pair of moleskin pants altered at the waist, and a vest brought in at the chest.

    That should at least give you an idea of the work which can be done for the remaining approx $150...
