So Canada Post reports that my Trousers and Tunic have arrived. I will be collecting them tonight after work, then attempting to get to the tailor in time.

I will post pictures when I get a chance to.

Okay, so I have picked them up, and tried them on. I ordered and XXL Pant and XL Tunic. Both fit quite well. Just doing the collar up is a bit of a pain as it is a hook type collar.

A faint smell, but nothing a gentle cold wash could not take out.

In terms of sizing did you buy one size up from your normal size for this order?

I have seen comments recommending that WPG clothing items, and I am presuming the same might apply to Spearhead, should be "up-sized" in order to fit properly.

As for the pants I did order one size up, and they fit quite well. As for the tunic, I did the same. I had a friend measure me, then compared that to the measurement chart, and ordered the next size up.

Scratchy as fuck though. It would have been just brilliant to have to fight in July wearing that.

Now if I can loose about 5 pounds even better. LOL.
