So my specific criticism would be: 7) They won't acknowledge or...
I am a bit confused and disappointed regarding the reaction of A&S. My assumptions are: 1. They don't know how to fix the coat's problems (as described earlier in this thread). 2. They (might) know it but think it's too expensive to alter it. 3. A combination of both. In this case you're better off moving on to another tailor. The "no more cloth" (if it's true, then) is hardly an excuse for not cutting a new (and hopefully better) coat. I'm sure that there...
That's an awfully tight coat. From "drape" to "drags"! But the cloth selection is nice!

I found that the body heat/sweat combined with air...

After, he lifts the jacket at the collar/shoulder and lets it settle. This is what you want to do when putting a finished jacket on, the collar thing, pulling on the fronts of a finished jacket is irrelevant and unnecessary. Finished jacket has a imprint of your form...
Quote: Originally Posted by NorCal_1 amazingly high armholes in that Luca picture ^ How did you judge the depth of the armholes based on a picture with both arms down? About that pulling at the front thing by your tailor (or Mariano Rubinacci): When you put your coat on ( slip into it, pull the shirt sleeves down, move your arms a bit and you're good to go), it has to fit properly. If there is a defect (in case of Rubinacci it's...

Speaking of DNA: Does anyone know if sharing DNA and womb with a twin sister causes any unpredictable consequences like wearing flashy colours and multiple patterns (in various combinations in one outfit) and short rise trousers with braces? I think Mariano can pull off that...
