I will say that when I first took delivery of this suit some months ago the jacket fit perfectly. Last night it was a tad tight…It’s fewer cheeseburgers and more salads for a while I guess.

I hardly ever have occasion to wear suits, but last night I did. I went to a gala event for work, and finally had an opportunity to wear this suit that I got courtesy of Indochino when they were in San Francisco doing their travelling tailor event. A full review is forthcoming, but I must say that though the suit is a bit more “fashion forward” than my tastes, I like it quite a bit.
