Madison Two-Button 1818 Suit
Gorgeous fit and appearance
I am living in the Republic of Korea and there are several branch stores in Korea. This is my first on-line purchase experience. I am 5.94 feet tall and I weigh 213 pounds. My abdomen is not protruded but frankly speaking I am not so athletic. I tried 44R Madison fit navy color in the BB flagship store in Korea and it suited me well. I ordered this suit via internet and the packaging was also very impressive. It came across the Pacific Ocean but I didn't have to iron it. I think that the fits of my previous suits from other manufacturers are incorrect. This suit make me look slimmer but I feel comfortable. I am considering to buy another one with grey color. Some people wrote that BB seemed to have changed the fit but this suit fits me very well.
I strongly recommend you to choose this if you are searching for a basic and classic suit.

Great value, but why change the fit?
This used to be a great suit. All of the suits in my closet are BB Madison Fit, but now the same suits in the store fit completely differently. The rise on the pants has been shortened, which changes the fit and feel of the pants completely. The jackets have also been changed most noticeably with higher armholes.
BB, if you want to change something about your suits, add some new patterns, styles or details, but please stop changing the fit of suits, pants and jackets, that your customers have been buying for years and have come to rely upon.

Excellent appearance and quality. The only negative was that I purchased 2 suits, 1 grey and 1 navy. I didn't look until after I got home from receiving the finished suits. The grey is a 41R and the navy is 40R. The fit is fantastic in both, but luckily I bought them in store, so they both fit.

Change of Fit
Extremely disappointed for the first time with BB. I purchased a 42s Madison Fit Grey Pinstripe suit and the suit will not fit me, even though I wear a 42s BB Madison Fit suit every day to the office. BB has obviously changed the fit of these suits. The consistency of the cut and fit of BB suits is what kept me a loyal customer for years. I'm afraid I will now have to look elsewhere.
