They start out dark blue, they get washed and worn, and eventually they wind up abraded and maybe in Africa with all the old CK...
As you noted, the collar points are a bit long; the underband on it could be a bit higher as well for an exact copy of the Keaton.. However, that height should be customized for your measurements.
Did you lounge with the Viscount and Viscountess Paul de Rosiere, and their son Roland?

They don't pin the jackets for a tailored appearance, otherwise it wouldn't look good. I can't think of one decently merchandised store that doesn't do this.
It's very possible the jacket is Cantarelli as well.
They make Etro suits, if you're familliar with those it will help. Boglioli is considered to be one of the best suits out there for a relatively reasonable price. A sportcoat will run you around $900. Suits are around $1,100. They do have some quality pick stitiching, and are half-canvassed. The shoulder is lightly padded, and they do a nice, high armhole. I've never seen any diffusion lines.
All arguments aside here, given the quality of the product Vass produces, do any of you really think they are worth as little as $550? Name me one other maker that charges this price for a comprable product. Vass at $550 was an anomoly, sort of like Jantzen at $40.

Agreed... this is by far the ugliest thread I've ever seen on the forum since we started. AHariss and Gabor are great guys that only have good intentions, and for them to be badmouthed here...
Wild Turkey on the rocks.
