I don't understand the love for this. The pants are too loose in the thigh and do not drape nicely. The jacket is overly cinched in the waist, producing a womanly figure 8 that I am pretty sure Manton does not have naturally (and if he does, a bespoke garment should help hide faults, not accentuate them, yes?). The jacket also has weak, sloped shoulders, which does not a justice do for Manton.
Mike - nice jacket. I might suggest having a good tailor remove a chunk of the shoulder padding. It seems a bit boxy where it could look more natural. Just a tought. Keep up the good work!
Yeah, it does have some strong shoulders. It is right out of the closet...it was my dad's and I am sure it was purchased long ago....he gave it to me 3-4 years ago. It is not the kind of SC I am going to get too much use from though as it is quite warm.
Something to appall the minimalists and seekers of understatement
Gorgeous suit! I want to hate the pocketwatch chain thing but I think it suits your personal aesthetic very well.

Looking sharp, Spoo! Can you tell me about that tie? Also, where the hell do you guys get these DB overcoats with the giant lapels? I want one of those, but the mall offered me no help. If you say Tom Ford I'm going to punch you in the eye!

Nice sharp, tailored look. I think it must be "ticket pocket Monday".

That sportcoat rocks. Camelhair with brass buttons? Is that what I'm seeing? Great suede longwings, too. Very SF approved.
