I bought a clearance Hugo Boss suit from Barney's that seemed to fit me pretty well. I already tailored the pant's length, along with the sleeve's length. The tailor kept insisting that I wanted the sleeve shorted too much; I eventually decided to meet him "halfway", and it seems that the sleeves are still too long; I'm going to get it shortened by about 1/4 more inches, I think. The shoulders should also be alright (I think?), since its the exact length as my shoulder; both are 17.5 inches. Also, as for the pants: I do realize that they're too big by about an inch. I tried to pull the pants up to where I plan to have them naturally sit at on my waist, and just force them to stay there while tightening my belt, but I think it helped produce some of the more unsightly effects around the crotch area. I think my pants might also have slowly fallen in the few seconds it took for me to take these pictures... edit: If I ask the tailor to take the jacket in and make the sleeves smaller, would it be possible for the jacket to fit me properly? Or should I just not bother with that, try to sell this one, and try to get another suit in a smaller 36? I'm confused about how the jacket shoulder length is the same exact length as my shoulder, yet have it seem too big. Is the jacket shoulder length naturally supposed to be a little smaller than your actual shoulder? Edit#2: took a couple of pictures with a smaller jacket, size 34, on the top of the second page. Would like comments on whether I should get a size 34 for hugo vs a 36.
