There is no balance issue that I can see. If you're talking about the fact that the stipes down the lower part of the side-panel are not vertical, then they aren't supposed to be; this is normal for any coat, but maybe is more extreme in this case because of the extra waist supression. You can see that this is not causing the back to be lower than the front because you can see that the stripes are not actually perpendicular to the hem either.

What's the extra sleeve material hanging down bellow the bicep about?

I actually think the shoulders fit extremely well. I have very broad shoulders and an athletic build, so maybe the drop from shoulders to chest to waist makes them look relatively big in camparison. The shoulders feel snug without being too snug. Though any smaller and my delts would begin to protrude.

you can do a lot with it - wear the pants separately, wear the jacket separately, wear the vest with the jacket etc etc.

enjoy it.

I think this is one of the more compelling reasons I want to keep it. I could wear it as a suit occasionally, but I agree that it would work well worn separately. I like versatility and this suit definitely wouldn't disappoint.

I haven't taken any yet, but can post some probably tomorrow night when I'm in the mood to snap more shots. Maybe I'll post a few pics of the suit I wear to work tomorrow as my first stab at the WAYWRN thread.

Yeah. That is the fucking point. If you can't piss in the weeds with the big dogs, you go home.

Keep it.

a bit too loud and torso-huggy for work, but great party suit and impressive OTR fit.

would shorten a bit, because with the very snug fit, it ends up looking too long (even though it isn't). all about overall proportions.

agree that F/B balance could be improved.

It's a rather '70s silhouette, which is why the jacket is long with the deep vents.

Ideally, it would be worn with a higher heeled shoe, which is also why Tom Ford's shoes have those stacked heels.

you look great in it. I think I have the same one for sale and seeing you in it is making me re-think my decision.

On second thought, I'm going to see some pics of the chick that took those pictures before I can give you my honest opinion.

I feel that he should change his name to Tommy Ford.

Definitely quite dandy and loud. But that's where it's at, man.

Sleeves a tad long (however, I notice more and more people wearing them long... weird) but great fit on the vest and jacket, especially on the torso.

Love how it has a sheen, as well. Congrats.

If you have very long legs, keep it, the length of the jacket wont be a big problem.

If the jacket was bespoke, I'm sure it could be that much waist supressed while keeping a straighter line on the back... The major point is to hide ones imperfections, not to accentuate them.

The shoulder also looks a bit too much, although the drape on the sleeve does not confirm it. Maybe you have an extreme atheletic build that compensates it.

+1 !!!!!!!!!!!

Goddamn, that is nice. Not 100% sure where you'd wear it, but if I owned a suit like that I would FIND a reason to wear it. Looks great. Get the sleeve length addressed and you are in business. Hell of a bloody nice suit.

Jacket pockets also look too high.
Don't take my criticisms wrong, please. Overall it looks impressive for a OTR, but I just don't like some details. (BTW, I only buy OTR but would not be happy with that).

Definitely looks long but otherwise very nice fit.
