I like it! Nice suit.
Don't mind the shoulders or jacket length myself.

I like it, very striking.

In respect to the broad shoulders, I've always thought that pagoda shoulders with roping can alleviate broadness.

However, I like the silhouette.

That's pretty awesome. I too would go for a more natural shoulder though.

If you did the short leingth and high stance on purpose, then I think it's great.

Nice work.

Cheers,

From a fellow Chaniac: well done.

I hate it because it looks better than mine.

I think my problem was that I chose 150's and it doesn't drape as well.

You have a great suit. Enjoy!

You're correct about the shoulders... with that much waist suppression the suit needs roped shoulders, here they are too boxy, like a Corneliani. I have yet to see a Chan suit that is well balanced.

Beautiful suit! On their website WW Chan quotes starting prices of $1300 and up for a two piece suit in their better fabrics. May I ask the approximate price on this suit?

Terrific. Also digging the silk knots.

It's definitely a modern looking cut/fit that updates the typical business uniform with a splash of edginess.


my thoughts exactly. The shorter length gives a nod to what Thom Brown & Michael Bastian & Raf Simons are doing, but the businessness (rather than shrunken fashionness) of the other elements (power-shoulders, no visible ankles) keeps the edginess to a tasteful splash. I like it alot.

The jacket length and high waist are fine and actually look quite stylish, but the shoulders are a touch too wide to go with those other choices. 1/2" less either side and the whole suit would "mesh" better.

YMMV of course. And it's still a good-looking suit! Congratulations, many happy wearings.

I love the shoulders. I think the suit looks great. Only thing I'd change is slightly longer sleeves.

I like it, because its stylish without trying too hard. When I see someone in Thom Browne, the look seems to scream "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!"
