Very nice! Can't see the length too well, but lapels look fine to me (subjective of course).

Thanks

I think it looks nice. I'd commission Chan in a heart beat if they do CMT....

Why? Do you own a mill or something? They have access to pretty much any cloth I can think of... What's so magic about CMT?

It's actually more expensive to bring cloth to many of the best tailors, particularly English. Mine will do this, for example, but the allowance is only £100. - B

Interesting about the lapel width. On my most recent suit, I increased the width 1/4" from prior jackets and lowered the gorge and breast pocket 3/4". I'm very happy with the result. I'll try to wear the suit Monday and have my wife snap a few pictures for this thread.

Not sure why the roll on mine would be any different... I raised the breast pocket about 1/4 inch on these...

New suit arrived last week. Super soft and heavy cotton suit in Scabal Ascona. The breast pocket is a tad high, otherwise I think it turned out nicely. I asked for swelled edges on this one. Crappy pix, but you get the idea. Cappelli woven tie. Wore it to see Patrick today.

I don't mind the position of that chest pocket one bit, Parker.
