 Ditto. Nice fit. rickytt -  the jacket's too-square shoulders are causing that slight rumpling on the sides at the level of the top button.  .  Like me, you have sloping shoulders, and I don't think you'll find much in RTW that works for them.
FWIW he has said that he has exceptionally sloping, narrow shoulders and wide hips.  
u didn't like my Cappelli suggestion CP?   On 2nd thoughts it was too close in color to the SC.   With that jacket I'd say 'go safe, go solid'. Maybe something that picks up a minor + with texture.   What about one of the Capppelli donegals on ET?. 
 'sup Spectre    Looking good IMO CM.  The flap patches r a nice touch, but apart from the square and socks I particularly like your color choices  here.
  I came to no break because I want ppl to see my awsm shoos.    I'm dead against stasis.  It disturbs me to see ppl trying to replicate Cary Grant or Fred Astaire - typre looks.  I'm simplifying, but I prefer a lower/med rise, no pleats, high hem + minimal shoulder padding and chest structure.   But I don't want to get ahead of the curve either. (And no-one ahead of the curve posts on SF anyway).  The posters I admire most are the ones who r right on point. Vox,...
[[SPOILER]]   +1  Cloth merchants IME  will send anywhere u want.  But perhaps you could use one of Luxire's less expensive stock cloths to start with rather than running the risk that they mess up a cloth you really love. 
 trews, sure. I have MTM Luxire trews and have been pleased with the workman-like result.  But a jacket is an entirely different animal.Have you seen a Luxire suit jacket that you admire?  I haven't.   It'd be like taking a Ferrari to your local foundry and saying 'Here, replicate this".  I don't want to rain on your parade E, but I don't like it. I don't like it at all. 
 Question is, are the Rick Owenses and the Thom Brownes just contemporary versions of Edward Sexton in the 70s or Armani in the 80s?   i.e.  abberations in the force, if u will..  culs-de-sac that no-one will venture down ever again.   Or are they  part of general move forward?  I suspect they're a gimmick, while true MC keeps on keeping on.
