Thanks. First fitting for this suit, but its his 3rd garment from me. All I have to do here is shorten the right sleeve 1/4 and hem the pants. I will adapt the pattern slightly and hopefully next time he can walk out with a completely finished suit.
I like to think I do my best for all my clients. MTM obviously has limitations when compared with making a pattern like we do in bespoke. I tried to explain this before we started but the budget would not stretch that far.I no longer do MTM at all.Its always going to be a compromise, do I think it's a bad MTM?

My head isn't really this big btw......
Had a go at a "Neapolitan" shoulder for this one. I quite like how this came out overall, its a bit like Sean Connery's early bond suits that were made in England to look Italian. By modern standards the coat is a bit too long, the trouser rise too high and the fronts are not cut away but square. Cloth is about 6 0z 50% silk 50% linen. Coat and trousers are unlined......feels as comfortable as PJ's.
