Thanks to everyone for your feedback on the "first look" at this Veronica Beard suit last week. I ordered a size up in the jacket and the fit is splendid: I gain a little length in the front, which I really like, and it falls just a little more elegantly overall. The pants fit perfectly in the original size. Both are an 8. (I usually am a 6 top and 8 bottom.)

Someone asked in comments about the sleeve length: I have short arms and am always folding up cuffs and scrunching sleeves, so this is perfect for me.

Also, thanks to LAR101 for reminding me what HEWI means (highly elusive wardrobe item) and to Greyscale for linking to a very useful acronyms list:!
