Brooks Brothers Suit and Sport Coat Fit Guide

Brooks Brothers Suit and Sport Coat Fit Guide

Brooks Brothers redesigned their fit guides a few months back so I wanted to take full advantage of the images and descriptions for personal reference, in addition to sharing them with you. I noticed over a year ago that Brooks Brothers' fit guides for their suits, pants, and shirts went missing from their website after seeing them in 2012, but now it all makes sense; they must have been revamping.

Because Brooks Brothers often makes certain patterns and colors for their suits and sport coats in one or two fits at a time (or the sale selection is thin), I'll gladly purchase an item in either a Madison, Regent, or Fitzgerald fit and then have the item tailored accordingly.

For example, I really wanted one of the Check with Deco sport coats, but it was only available in a Madison fit (the most boxy and traditional). So, after a little research online, I discovered that I may want to buy a different size depending on which fit I get. I ended up going with a 39R in the Madison fit because I'm typically a size 40, and then I took the sport coat to my tailor to get it taken in. The results were perfect and exactly what I wanted.

I prefer the Regent and Fitzgerald fits in a 40S (though I'll take a 40R if it's the only type available). They are a more modern, fitter kind of fit, which compliment someone like me whom is 5'10" 165 lbs. The Milano fit is just too skinny for my tastes.
