I'm planning a second MTM order and would appreciate your thoughts on the first attempt (the trousers look especially odd to my eye). Presented with thanks and without further comment:
(Slightly higher res album)
Do any of the DJs in WA stock Loakes (or any other decent stuff, for that matter)?
I've heard the one in Claremont's quite big, but I wouldn't expect it to be any better than the barren flagship in the city.

As for cutaway collar, it depends on your facial shape. If you have a long angular face (e.g. lyle lovett), then a cutaway collar is fantastic.
Thanks for your...
I've decided the MTM suit I had made up just looks awkward, so I'm planning changes.
Original is on the left. On the right, I've lowered the button stance, opened the quarters and softened the shoulder. Is that better? What else needs doing?
Oh, and I also gave myself a cutaway collar, which I'm undecided about.
A few pages back, someone asked about a 3" grenadine in the green and FWIW, this is something I would buy immediately if it were to be stocked.
Also, can we still expect a navy 3" restock in the coming days?

Does anyone have any pictures of themselves wearing a 1" dress belt with a pair of pants?
1" dress belt from LGC, black, to assuage/confirm your fears (31.5" waist):
bonus shot with jacket
(Yes, I know the belt is an inch or two too long.)
