Quote: Originally Posted by mainy would be better without the pick stitching all over it I agree. The pick stitching is too noticeable. It looks alright, but it would look much better if the button stance were an inch or 2 lower. Most people aren't built for the high button stance that the Benjamin suits have.

But they get the style right and they are well-made. Many of the online tailors don't get the style right and cut them square. Bond's cuffs are all curves. I submitted my own design to moderntailor.com to rectify this, and now they have added the proper turnback cuff to their...

It seems they'd be more formal than a barrel cuff, but less formal than French cuffs, but some other threads indicate these are a casual style. Some sources say that they were designed for Sean Connery for Dr. No. Connery wore them only with his suits and blazers in that movie.

If you want colour down the middle of your shirt I suggest you wear a tie.
I have a vintage WWII peacoat with 6 buttons to show plus 2 under the collar to button up all the way, for a total of 8.
The suit isn't cut right for you, and it's too far off to alter. Sizing up or down won't solve anything and just create other problems. If RLBL doesn't fit you, try something else. It's a nice suit, but it is not for everyone. It's not for me, but Polo RL suits fit me better than anything else.
Will there be a long-rise available for those who need it?

I'm not a fan of braces really and was looking for the right alternative. Thanks again all. Belts are indeed covered by the vest, but they are not hidden. They create a lump underneath, most noticeably at the buckle. Side adjusters are fine, but...
