    I have two blazers I'm trying to decide on keeping or returning. I'm most curious about if the shoulders fit right. I've read that's the most important thing to fit well and can't tell if it looks a little funny because of the padding there or if the fit is wrong. Any advice is appreciated!

    You're right the front does look pretty good. Can you take it to a tailor and get their opinion on if there's anything they can do about the back?

    I recently purchased a Lazio jacket from Suit Supply. Normally I'm a 42R but in this jacket that was too tight. It is one of their slim cut jackets.

    So on the advice of a forum member I sized up and went with a 44R.

    I'm happy with the fit from the front. The back less so. I'm not 100% sure if it's the jacket as I have one shoulder higher then the other which might account for the appearance of pulling.

    Just wanted a 3rd party opinion. Thanks.

    Are the pants too skinny? I'm a very skinny guy so somewhat thinner/more fitted pant legs are generally preferable to having a lot of extra fabric flapping around when I walk.

    Yes. IMHO the pants are too skinny.

    The jacket though looks good.

    [MENTION=15801]Tacitus[/MENTION] - Any chance you can have someone else take the pic? The collar has moved quite a bit compared to jackets I have and this could one of a couple issues but it is easier to diagnose if your are isn't raised.

    The back looks like it needs let out a little bit. From the front it looks fine but from the back and sides, you can see your body contours.

    Also trying to figure out if it's too similar in color to my other grey jackets...

    Fit is spot on! The checks easily differentiate it from the others.

    Could anyone wearing Levi’s 541 (30x32) compare them with the bonobos chinos that are on sale now? Seems a good deal and I don’t have a lot of chinos.
