My bessie needs to get his son a black suit for his 16th. Hes really slight though, proper fuk sized. Where can he get a modern suit off the rail and get them to alter it to fit right?. Goes to school in chiswick so he is picking him up from there tomorrow and wants to drive somewhere from there and sort it. Please.

next, went in there the other day and was shocked at how good some of their suits are. I'm sure they do a 34 chest too.

Have a wedding next week and both my suits are in a different fucking country.

Is black trousers, grey or white shirt and black merino wool sweater acceptable? or will i look like a twat?

Truth is no one will probably give a shit, but you will probably feel a twat when everyone else is dressed up and your not. No doubt you will get stick for it but once your pissed you wont care. If you knew you had a wedding why didnt you organise yourself so your suits were with you?

Id be livid if I couldnt get my best gear out, its the best time to get yourself looking good and if your single the best place for getting some action. Not in a merino wool sweater you wont though.

Seems very big but that might just be me. Is it a windsor knot?

I'd agree with you Rick - I tried to achieve no break, but I think that would still be attainable with .5" - .75" extra in length.
