    Uniqlo lambswool sweater size.S
    Uniqlo +J reversible vest size.S

    like the sweaters, will order more
    trousers are nice, the +J flannel is in the beginning process of being tailored.

    my next pairs i would not taper too much... 7.7 is good for me personally.

    trousers don't need to be tapered so much unless you really are a slim body type, then go right ahead

    hmm.. i'll have to see how this one turns out. still have the dark gray that i need to have tapered. but left as is, the leg opening was defintiely too big. i tapered down to 15 (7.5) i think?

    Picked up the +J, size small. I get some extreme hourglass flare. Fixable, return, or see if XS is available?
    I will be going to the tailor on Thursday if it is salvageable. I know the sleeves need to be shortened.

    Shoulders/chest okay?

    IMO, once it is tailored/pressed it should fix the flare. Unless it is very resistant to you hold it down when you put your hands to your side e.g. it has not soften up and settled down after being folded up being shipping to you, then return and that suit may not fit you or be too large.

    Which suit/cut is that?

    I'm trying to throw up a +J flannel jacket fit for tomorrow and you can judge from that.

    It's the +j wool. Not flannel, not slim fit. I'm wondering if I should swap it for XS but fear it may be too small.

    is it tight anywhere in the shoulder? i think the shoulder should be your most critical fitting aspect as it is technically the most expensive area to fix and tailor.

    i'm sure if you find a respectable tailor in your area (SF -- easy) they can fix this flaring problem. I saw your other post in the MC thread that is good.

    MC also has a tailor thread dedicated to the city of SF, repost these photos in there and ask around if anyone can suggest a tailor? best bet is that and bring along photos to the actual tailor you choose.

    i had similar flare problem with my tasmanian wool jacket but that was do in part to taking in the waist too much creating the hourglass figure, or extenuating it i should say.

    keep in mind different silhouettes look good on different body types.

    It's out of stock online in the UK in small in both brown and navy. Have you tried one of the Asian proxies?

    don't know of any. I wish I didn't have such attachment issues to certain items of clothing, I always end up heartbroken.

    Whats the material like? I'd pay 40 shipped to Canada. Looks like it would be a great beater.
