Don't move you arms!!!!! Stand normal. A tailor would smack you.
No loss that it doesn't fit. It is a ugly jacket.
I just picked up 2 out of 5 bespoke suits from this tailor at a thrift store. The quality is honestly mindblowing and on the level of any other Savile Row tailor. I will admit though the handwork, although beautiful, is a bit overwhelming, yet very clean. I googled the tailor and cannot find any info. All the suits were made 1993-1995.
From the OP's description it sounds like what most tailors would call a herringbone. If indeed it is a herringbone, it is a great way to introduce texture or dimension to a wardrobe if you are a solid suit kind-of-person. History: Gordon Gekko's DB in the Greed speech was Lesser 11oz. deep navy blue. They still make the same clothe today.

A lot tailors, especially in NY, and even on Savile Row will send either the jacket out, or the trousers. After the first two suits, there is really no need to do raw tryons anymore, and the suits can just go to a slipon form, unless you are going from SB to DB, etc. I saw that customers with physical issues with their legs, extreme bowlegged and such, would have the jacket sent out for CMT and the pants would be made in house so a raw tryon could be done.

Their taste level is indeed the highest out of any maker around. Nicki/Glazer is the only other maker that is on their level, that I have experience with. Both those makers are usually used together ie; Polo uses both, Paul...
That is indeed him. Usually see him changing subway lines in the morning, and he's easy to spot.

I knew that Bijan used D Avenza, but I thought that he had once used Belvest previously. It was probably St. Andrews. A good reason why it was SA was when Harrison James grew off after the NYC closure, SA was the maker because they had a relationship...
