Next week things are starting to happen.  On Monday, the first of the promotional items will be delivered to us. We also have a conference call scheduled with the brokerage firm and manufacturer to get details on freight for the suits and jackets.  I will be sharing information with you as soon as I get it.

Thank everyone for your patience, it's hard to believe so much has happened in the last 60 days!

Sizing For Suits And Jackets

I have had some questions about sizing, here is our size chart and below are my recommendations.

Jackets are pretty simple, I recommend ordering one size larger than your t-shirt size.  This will allow for clothing underneath and for bending.

  • For suits the 2 most important categories are chest size and neck to ankle.  You want to find a size that is a few inches (2 to 3) under your total height on neck to ankle and then from there you can adjust up if you need to for chest size(you can also compensate here for midsection size.)  If you have a larger diameter mid-section than you do chest this can make the crotch tight if the suit is sized to your chest measurements because it will raise the crotch.
