Thanks. That suit is bespoke but some years old and had to undergo some surgery recently, so I'm glad it still looks fine.

wha, no pictures? Fo shame! PS - ok ok ok, just picture this man, like us 3 piece wearing no-break hooligans, we like, go get some spraypaint and then we go to those train stops, ok, and we like 'insert' the word collar there, like right there ok. So then when these 3B black oversized suit wearing imps show up, they'll constantly be reading "please mind the collar gap". it'll be like our own little Sartorial fight club. Yeah!

As mentioned before, your shirt collars are awesome. I think you will benefit greatly and find more comfortable a more relaxed, drapey fit. Interesting to see your new pieces.

^Thanks, UC. It's wool. Some sort of super high spun, but I don't know exactlty.

Cheers! Nice photo of you and your father. I always seem to vaguely recognise the places in your photos but can't quite place them...

You do realise this is strictly "on loan" right?

This is funny to me, because it is far less fashiony than most of my "fashion" suits. It is actually probably one of the loosest suits that I own as well. I think I might be confusing the feeling of loose and proper as well. This number is bespoke, all my others are MTM and I think in an effort to get MTM to fit I have ended up wearing suits that are just plain too small. Peaked lapels aside, when I saw these photos I couldn't help but think that the fit reminded me of a lot of Phat Guidos fits, which I was happy as ever to think.

Thank you for the comments on the collars. I love them too.

My next comission will be different in silhouette than this one. I think I am going to move over to the dark side with the drapists...

This is how Frank started with me too...very slim, and then the peer pressure and the fact that my body changed for the better-no longer a skinny punk, now more of a well built punk- we gravitated toward a silhouetted drape. When are you headed there next? I have a linen SC (that I'm trying some different things with-can't wait) and one of my Lessers on his queue as we speak. Maybe we'll hook up for lunch.

Thank you, Pierre Corthay.

PG's suits are FAR more loose fitting to be honest..you look good in your style though in a PB way not PG. Also, that collar is beautiful can you tell me about the shirt..collar length etc.

I like the suit and it has a certain menace about it, especially with those gloves and skull crusher boots. However, it is way tighter than anything PG wears Pat.

Had a different suit planned for today, until I saw that I had blown the seam out of the seat.

Thank you, Pierre Corthay.

I hope you are going for longer jackets with wider lapels and lots of drape as well as looser trousers. If that's the loosest fitting suit, I don't want to see the tight fitting suits

Yeah, I didn't say a word to Frank about how slim I wanted it. I thought it best that I let him do what he knows. If he gave me something looser the pics would have been looser. I was specific about details style wise, but I didn't want to micro-manage a tailor. I mean who am I to do that? A first time bespoke customer.

I am not sure when I will be in next. I have been awfully busy lately and I am going off to Paris in April. We will see how much money is dropped overseas!
