    I have the opportunity to take a flyer on a Tom Ford suit (i.e., can't try it on). The suit is listed as a 48 with 17.5" shoulders (not sure how exact the measurements are).

    I'm typically a 48 (Canali, ISAIA, Hugo, etc.). Most shoulders seem to be 17.75" to 18".

    From what I've read, it is suggested that buying a size up might be a good idea for Tom Ford. Any experience with Tom Ford sizing relative to other designers?

    Thanks. Those are both great looking pieces. Will continue to be on the lookout for 50s, I guess.

    What model of Canali and Boss do you like the best?

    I fit the Canali 52 like a glove across my shoulders. The best fit for me is the Model 13000 Drop 7 but I fit the other models well.

    In Boss the Cary Grant 52 model's shoulders are too narrow. My triceps/biceps poke out from under the shoulder pads so I have to up-size to a 54.

    I tried on a Tom Ford 52 R Base A and the fit across the shoulders were fine.

    Sorry, but I have never worn either of those brands. Im pretty much a standard UR 38R, (well, lately a 40R) and these size 50EU TF suits fit... as you can see, slim.

    Bonded, see if you can find out what base it is. Have the seller check the inside breast pocket. If it is a base a, you should be good. If it is a base b, size up. I am guessing but I think spoo's pinstripe is a base b and the charcoal is a base a.

    HAM is kinda awful. But you're right, not one of of Luger's best tracks, either.

    I agree it's not one of his best but I also don't think Ye or Hov are suited for a pure Luger beat.

    Leave that shit to Ross and others.
