That’s just one of those bummer facts you have to accept in life.
But society is doing the best it can.
Specifically, the Freemans Sporting Club aspect of society. See, they’re now doing a thorough made-to-order suiting program online.
First things first, you’ve got to know your basic jacket and trouser size. We’re going to assume you’re there already. If not, we’re curious as to what your current clothing-owning situation is.
Anyway, you’ll go here and look at the myriad options you have for creating a suit that few if any other humans will ever have. Materials, colors, lining options, etc.
For argument’s sake, let’s say you’ve got your heart set on a spring/summer-weight Italian linen number, in a mini houndstooth, with a half-lined, single-breasted, single-vent jacket with a patch chest pocket and flap pockets on the sides. It’s got to have a natural shoulder, because you love a natural shoulder. Your arms are a tad longer than the average gent, so you choose the longer sleeve option.
Now on to pants: you’ve got two fit options. On this suit, you’re going for the slightly fuller Rivington fit, because it’s summer and it’s linen and that’s the way the sartorial winds are blowing these days. You opt for the adjustable side tabs over the belt loops because who doesn’t love a good adjustable side tab?
... Not that you’re too picky.
