I just saw Schwarzenegger in a suit on the Jay Leno show last night. He sure didn't look like a pear! Exactly, shoulder padding will do the guy a lot of justice along with a slighter higher collar for the guy along with a bit more supression at the waist,...

However, I would go with a slightly longer length, open the quarters, and, of course, fix the divets. Sir, I think your idea of balance is off. The guy is 5'4" with a 16" neck. A higher shoulder and higher collar(because his neck is pretty long relative to the his body) would...

You all say that I have low shoulders, but I like to think of it as developed traps, natch. I already asked Patrick to open up the quarters on my next jacket. I also am inclined to add at least 1/4" to the length, since that was...
My two cents: The suit has a downward look to it. The shoulders are too sloped which throws off the balance of the suit. I recommend a bit of padding but in a very slight pagoda style with maybe a bit of roping or maybe not. I would open up the quarters for many reasons but the button stance I think requires an open quarter. I think the flaring of the skirt also makes your shoulder appear small. It should be narrowed down. I think the closed quarters make the suit...
What would be the minimal amount of fabric I need for for a knee length overcoat?
The toe is SO BIG. Wingtips, medallion, double monk, pebble grain...... that's too much.

Looks like most tailors are reluctant to do CMT from reading the postings on this forum. I dunno how LS would do CMT since the Izzy basically measures you and then he sends the measurements off to the MTM shop. Or am I wrong. He does have bolts of fabric at the place. Please, more recommendations are welcomed.
I used LNC down on Baxter St. once for a suit, the workmanship was quite good but that was before when they had a shop. Does the guy at the current place do CMT work? If not, I was thinking of getting some coating cloth from Andrew and having it done somewhere in NYC. I would like a recommendation that is reasonable in price. Does Mr. Ned so CMT? And if so, how much would it be? Thanks!
