Vintage- Just curious- how did your first Chan suit turn out w? What cut , fabric, style was your first? What led to your choice of peaked lapels? (BTW I assume this most recent suit is double vented. Yes?)
Double vented, as was my first Chan suit. The first suit has much the same cut. It was done in the Loro Piana 120s fabric, midnight blue with grey chalkstripes, and is single breasted, with three buttons rolled to the second. The first had some issues when it was delivered (it was detailed in an earlier thread that I'm too indolent to find just now); the sleeves were significantly too long and the jacket was too boxy about the waist. I was measured for the suit during Chan's November visit to Houston. I went back to meet with Patrick when they came to Austin in March and he resolved the suit well to my satisfaction. As to the choice of peaked lapels, I'm not sure what guided me, other than a desire to infuse a little personal style.
