I'm going to go ahead and post pics of my first Chan suit in this thread - Page 3

I think it's a great suit and a great outfit-it's amazing how much the pocket square wakes up the suit once you added it.

Drake,
What did you ask for when you met with Patrick? Clearly, this isn't their house style...

I like the silhouette on this suit. Very nice.

Everything fits you incredibly well! Question about the lack of a break in the trousers; is this something that is personal preference or was it Chan recommended?

LK: Do you think pagoda shoulders would help? I thought about that but thought it would draw even more attention to my shoulders.

Renault78law: The silhouette is pretty basic: suppressed waist, flared skirt (and a heavy wool and canvas to go with it), roped shoulders (they are roped you just can't see it from my terrible pictures), opened up front quarters, high gorge, slightly shorter jacket, and low rise trousers.

mrchapel: The break, I think I just told Patrick to give me the same amount of break as was on his trousers.

A general comment, the shoulders are not as extreme as they look like in the picture in real life. The pictures were just taken from a little above knee height so the shoulders look all weird.

If anything I think you need a softer shoulder and not a roped one. I think that roped shoulders look ridiculous nearly 100% of the time. The only exception I can remember is a suit that Thinman has from Oxxford.

Agreed. I'd echo what many other posters have said. Overall, it is a very sharp suit. Nice looking. Appears to be well-made, and fits very well. But the length to my eye is so short that it's actually distracting, more than just a style point.

I understand the whole Thom Browne look, and the trend that has followed. So if you're just wearing it for going-out OR if you work in an artsy environment, then I'm sure you'll pull it off with charm. But if you work in a serious business setting, 90% of the men (and most of the women, probably) will notice that it's at least an inch short. Maybe 2.

I like the suit, too, for going out rather than business.

(Thanks, iammatt)
