None of these things indicate the quality of craftsmanship or construction. That they are sexy to you is a separate issue.

You're right, I have alluded to dressing like an old man. I don't have a problem with you alluding to the same. However, you have dismissed opinions and preferences on the basis that they seem "old man" to you. Be fair: you do not mean it in a positive way. And that's fine. But I think that makes what you mean by "sexy" and "old man" fair to challenge and discuss.

Dude, you're the one who keeps posting Sciamat pictures as exemplars of good tailoring! I seriously question it once, and this is what happens. Who's the one looking for drama?

If I've misread you, I'm happy to admit that and apologize for any hostility on my part. But I don't think questioning your admiration for Sciamat is out of line in any case.

Oops, too late, another one took the bait . . .

Here's a little fable for y'all - you guys ever listen to a chick talk about being anally raped, fuck me "straight" and thought to yourself, "Boy, she should really get herself some . . ."

Less talk = more fwock.

Good God, man - I don't even know what this means! But Foof's last comment seems like a half-hearted, masked attempt at conciliation, and I've had enough with internets dramatics. Therefore, I will extend my hand, grasp his olive branch (no homo?), and be done with it. I will now revert to doing what I do best: posting pics of tail. Speaking of which, is Irina Sheik perfect? Or something close to perfect? I think that - at a minimum - this topic warrants discussion...

















To quote Voxy, "Oooops..."

I see that balance has been restored.

Carry on.

I don't have Foo's foofing skills, but still!
I corrected the run of the stripes to match them with international tailoring standards.
As it turns out, the waist suppression is at a minimum in the front(s):



The massive problem now is the collar being half a mile away from the neck (which can not be corrected easily, if at all, since they have shortened the lapel fold to the maximum).
You can also see that the shape of the front edge is mirrored in the patch pocket. And, of course, that the quarters are not "open" at all!

I'm getting more and more confused by the changing excuses of the drapists (which is likely a side effect of certain professions) but my point of view is:

If there is no drape in it it's not a drape coat!


This does of course not mean that there isn't additional width which allows you to move your arms freely, which is also facilitated by the forward pitch of the sleeves.

Manton's coat clearly has drape.

Thanks for yet another personal insult. The assholery that this topic arouses is astounding.

See those "dents" on either side of the chest near the scye? That's drape. I love the sophistry about there is "additional width" but not "drape." That's what drape is.

If you are the great "tailor god" you think you are, wouldn't you know that?

Oh, no no, this has been a mere dalliance. The black suit thread, that one can take an entire night.
