    I agree that it is Continental European. Nice suit... but a bit pricey for a solid navy suit.

    The fabric looks fantastic. They've described it as pincord. I'd say it is quite distinctive.

    But with a 26 inch inner leg measurement, it's another one for the shorter man.

    It appears to have full cuffs... so some possibility for lengthening the legs. But the length of the jacket (sleeves and back) would be a greater challenge.
     
  5. Lose the cuffs and you could get 30" or so out of them. A little less with a false cuff. This would extend the legs to the kind of length that would seem right for the jacket arms and length.

    It is a good thing I have very short legs then. This will be my first dive into the 30s and it's only because I like the continental origin and those roped shoulders.
