Here you go. This is me earlier today dressed for an interview. Don't lecture me about the pink, I know. I was secretly hoping they actually wouldn't hire me after what I heard. Sleeves are slightly short, but I'm getting it fixed as it was my fault. I'm not wearing the vest, but the vest itself fits quite well. I'm going to work on the fit a bit with them, like getting the waist suppressed a little more, armholes higher, etc. I'm also going to get the vest lengthened a bit since the one included with this just barely covered enough of the waistband. I think the reason was that the rise was a little lower than one would normally go with say... pleated pants which a vest is usually paired. Overall, this was a good experiment. It wasn't exact on the very first try, but at least I know how to perfect the fit and to better take my measurements. The main thing, like I've said before, is to tell them exactly what you want and show pictures.
Total cost of this experiment was $239 for a three piece in Super 120's tropical weight wool. (This was basically $199 plus $40 for the "hand padded spec" that includes floating horsehair canvas and black horn buttons. Shipping is included in all their prices already.) I'll most likely get my next suit in this ideal fabric, as I live in Florida. It drapes fine, but I'm considering getting an inner cuff on the pants so it'll break a bit better over my shoe. Sadly, this picture doesn't show the absolutely perfect length of the trouser that I happened to get right. I'll see if I can get a picture snapped by someone else. As for pictures of construction and such... Outside view of jacket.
Yes, I ironed it after. Inner view of lining and pockets. Underside of lapel with tiny stitches to the canvas.
Hard to see, but it's there. I don't think I could prove to you it's canvassed any other way. Front view of trousers.
Note no belt loops, as I hate belts on suits. Back view.
One is the loneliest number... Inside lining with hidden change pocket.
I never use it, I actually prefer having a patch pocket within the right front pocket. I'll probably ask them to do this for my next suit. Kick tape at hem.
Squint and you'll see it. Hope this was informative! Again, their website is www.baronboutique.com
