Do you know if they make adjustments to your pattern or add least add notes in your file for future suits based on your feedback? That's the thing that scares me most about not having the fitter see you in your suit. As we know, they see many faults we lay people don't.

Honestly, I have no idea. We'll see how this one turns out. If I get a chance, maybe I'll take some measurements and compare.

What's the worst that can happen? Suit comes in with one button instead of the new 3 button style, then you try it on and think hmmm that's actually not too bad and you send all your suits back to be converted to one button?

No biggie

Does anyone sell Horween shell cordovan jacket buttons yet?

Seems like a StyleForvm natural.

I give this idea freely to my brothers, in the spirit of Goodwill.

Yep, that's pretty much the story, but what can I do? I'm not big time enough for my tailor to craft me some sort of convertible jacket that can switch from one to three and back. SwissArmySuits and BlazerSuits are for the real StyleForum stars.

Would Ambrosi put three buttons in the cuffs if you asked nicely?

Are you going to tell us what you ordered or do we have to wait for it to come in? I'm guessing hopsack.

It will explode the StyleForum universe. That's all you need to know.

Ah, but is it Rubinacci does Tom Ford, or Tom Ford does Rubinacci?

So you have many identical odd jackets with different colored linings?

When this one comes it is time that you showed use the full 'Foo Style' in some detail again. The last time you did that was on your first trousers from Ambrosi.

Perhaps you could do the full array please, front rear profile with and without the coat and the inside of the coat as well.

It would be an interesting lesson in what must be one of the most carefully considered suits owned by members here.

Knowing your attention to detail, Matt, I'm pretty sure something will be off (though hopefully only something minor) I, for one, am looking forward to a an all-star performance of Foo foofs Foo (overlength charges may apply)
