1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Hi, I have a 42R Solid Navy RLPL suit. Problem is it's JUST too wide over the chest and shoulders for me. This might be a long shot, but I thought I'd try before taking it for cutting...

    edit: I'm also open for other brands, as long as it's solid navy and 38R. Somewhere in the same league as RLPL

    It fits a 40R, here's the measurements(inches) and info...will try to be as precise as possible

    Suit in general:
    -Made by Saint Andrews
    -Super 150
    -Solid Navy, a bit more on the blue side

    Jacket:


    -SB, Two button
    -Functional Buttonholes
    -Dual vent
    -High arm holes
    -Straight flap pockets (2 regular + 1 ticket )
    -Notch lapel (3'' at widest point)

    BOC length: 30
    TOC length: 31.5
    Shoulders: 18.5
    Sleeves: 25.25-25.5
    P2P: 22
    Upper waist (upper button): 19.5
    Lower waist (lower button): 20

    Pants:

    -Flat front
    -Non cuffed
    -No belt loops, side adjusters

    Waist: 17.5*2 / 35
    Rise: 10.5
    Inseam: 32.5
    Hem: 8.75
    Width knee: 9.5
    Width thigh between knee and crotch: 12
    Width thigh at crotch: 14

    So basically I'm looking for a smaller version of the same suit.
    I'd need a suit with 17.75" - 18'' shoulders(important), and 20-21'' chest, and a bit slimmer waist.

    Gonna add pics soon, let me know if you have anything!

    Edit: Regarding the pants, they used to be cuffed, but I had them lengthened. I discovered that there's a tiny hole/tear on the backside of pants where the cuff used to be, it's very hard to see. It will of course be impossible to see if you're going to have the pants cuffed again. It's where the thread went through, when the pants were cuffed. We're talking 1/2-1 mm
