Greetings: I have a DB jacket and wish to raise the section where the jacket crosses to make the V at the chest (what is that called?). Also, I would like to bring the jacket in about an 2 inches and get some waist suppression as well as snug it up a bit. Holding the jacket over 2 inches appears to give me the look I'm seeking. There will be a total of 6 buttons to move. Is this taboo or has it been done regularly with success?

Use the money to get in shape. Everything looks good when you are in shape. I'm in shape.. I'm just built...

*** Pictures and/ or links please*** In your opinion what is the best looking and best quality dinner jacket? I'll give you a general understanding of my shape as that my make one DJ better for me than others. I'm "46R US" and shaped like a box with broad shoulders. There is a battle between my chest, my belly and my love handles. My belly has won out over chest with my love handle following close behind.
Are Charles Tyrwhitt shirts any good? I only have 1 Charles Tyrwhitt shirt. It's a formal turn down collar with a plaque. I do like the shirt but it is different from a dress shirt.
Size 46R

I would tuck and stitch the pocket flaps.

The lapels are really quite wide... it's hard to tell though with that terrible tie. hehe Quote: Originally Posted by Sander I think it could look great.

No I don't know the year. In the 40's and 50's from what I heard - the lapels where quite wider (not that I think this version is that old).
