The brand/cut just might not work for you

Here's a picture, sorry if it's crappy. It actually fits pretty well in the upper area once I have a shirt on underneath. My guess is that I'll need to tailor the sleeves and also take it in the torso.

damn, ok I'll go to the tailor I know today and see what he says. If he says he can let out the underarms of the 40 a little I may just go get that one.


The issue is I think I'm a 41 but there aren't many places to find them.

That looks pretty big...I'd the cut is too big for your on that suit. But if you don't mind a bit ( read a lot) of tailoring you might be able to pull it off.

I ended up exchanging for the 40R. Will post pics once it's finished being tailored.

Nice

Ed's Nautica suit wasn't too bad on me, the shoulders and arm length were pretty spot on just tight, need to lose weight and have it taken out a smidge if that, thanks again sir.

I want to get some Brook Brother polos - how do you guys find the fitment of the regular / slim fits? Are they similar to Jcrew sizes where regular fit is huge and the slimfit is alot better fitted for me? Ralph Lauren regular fits are huge as well and the custom fits are more fitted for me - would BB equate same thing?

Cheaper than $50 jeans that are not baggy but not super tight? Preferably sold at Kohls because it's close.

Time to go buy a suit...I have a wedding coming up end of the month I have to go to in Ohio..I'm going to buy just a Navy Blue suit I think that I can wear to most events..I will wear a suit maybe once a year or so..if that. What color shoes should I buy and any recommendations...would like to spend under $200 on shoes if possible, but if I have to spend a little more I don't mind since my feet wont be growing anymore(sz 13 I need which can be a little harder to find sometimes).
