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!

Tried a makeshift linen PS today. Cardigan is navy though it looks black. Suit is grey herringbone. Thanks for the input guys and I am trying a new method for taking pix tomorrow, didn't have time to try it this morning due to weather here in Detroit (3 hour drive to work...)

First, let me just say that your hat, alone, is probably worth more than my entire wardrobe. Also, none of what is to follow should be taken overly seriously, given the sartorially-challenged source. That said, since you are wont to dole out advice that breaks SF ranks, I thought I'd do the same. To me, all of your pieces are nice on their own, but the net ensembles you create look a bit affected at times. Maybe that's just the knowledge that you are, what - 27? - clouding my judgment. Edited to add: Today's fit reinforces this notion.
