    @emnyd stop! I'm the same sizes (except I'm 6'2", shorty ) and that suit looks pretty awesome for the price. I'm more than half way into this 90 day challenge! Don't make me blow it on a suit I don't even need!

      Yeah, that's pretty tempting, although I'm 6'4" (shorties).

        If you're 6'4", I'd skip it... or at least hit up your local H&M and try it on first. Both the jacket and the pants are almost definitely going to be comically short on you.

Additionally, all final sale items are 50% off with code "MAY50", although the pickings are pretty slim; there are a bunch of their lightweight chinos in each of their fits (Kennedy, Davis, and Connor, in increasing slimness), although the sizes are scattered and most of the colors are quite bold.
          I almost bought the mint ones before I realized it was the Canadian site. They don't have them on the American one. Or the 50% off deal

            Like a dope, I bought this suit two weeks ago for ~$100. It's like $60 now:

            Linen Jacket $39.99: http://www.hm.com/us/product/24145?article=24145-B
            Linen Pants $19.99: http://www.hm.com/us/product/24146?article=24146-C

            Yeah yeah yeah, super skinny lapels and it's probably a bit short, but whatever. I'm not dropping hundreds of dollars on a casual linen suit that I'm going to wear 10 times a season. Coincidentally I'm wearing it today.



            I usually wear a 40 jacket. Had to size up to 42 on this though.

            I'm digging that set, emynd. But I'm normally a 40S, and I don't know if 40R will be okay or not. Says 39" chest for 40R, and I have a 41" chest, but I'm also only 5'8", so I'm not so sure about 42R. But it seems like an awesome summer suit.

              My chest is the same size is yours so I'd bet you'd need a 42R. The sleeves will almost definitely be too long for you (unless you have freakishly long arms for your size) so you'd probably have to get them tailored. You'd probably need to get the pants tailored as well because they're a pretty standard 34x32 fit. I just sent this PM to another member who asked but I might as well post it here for reference:

              My chest measures at right around 40". Shoulders are ~17.5" Waist is ~34". I have long arms and usually wear 16x36 Charles Tyrwhitt shirts. When copping jackets on ebay, I usually look for jackets with 21" chest, 18" shoulders and 26" sleeves. I would guess that this 42R H&M jacket is very close to those measurements.

                Precisely. I've been warming to loafers (strictly a balmoral guy for work, boat shoe guy for casual currently), but couldn't decide whether to go with brown or a natural chromexel (either from Rancourt or Oak Street, both very similar in all respects). The lower price on Rancourt in brown would have tipped the balance... back to the drawing board.

                  I'm fairly certain they still have the 50% off final sale deal on the US website.

                      The suit looks good, I've been looking for some linen for the summer. Is the jacket lined in polyester? I feel like that would defeat the purpose of a breathable linen jacket a bit...How slim are the pants? I'm a bit skeptical of going with my usual size with H&M, so I'm wondering how slim your build is and how slim you usually like your pants to be.

                        Yeah, I should have mentioned that the stupid jacket is lined with polyester. Sorry about that.

                        The pants are quite slim. I'm not super skinny by any means (6 foot 1 and hovering around 195-200 lbs unfortunately) and while the pants are indeed slim, they're not oppressively slim. The pics of the model are pretty good representation of how slim they are on me.

                              Thanks for the info. Now I'm wondering if I should get the jackets, and see if I could maybe remove some of the lining. I actually want the pants more anyway, since I don't anticipate wearing the jacket much at all, but it would be nice to have.
