B., nice looking suit. How do you like it? What the cloth is?

This is how napoletans make their suits. Some British tailors also make extended darts. I've seen pictures of the old A&S and Henry Poole that had long darts.

I was at Dishes on Park wearing my Mina today.

It's cut roomier and drapier than what's typically been posted in this thread. Very comfy.

I posted this in the CBD thread but maybe it'll get more discussion here

from this picture, I like the way the shoulders & chest look on you a little better than your Steed jackets. Everything below the buttoning point seems shortened though. Is it actually shorter than your other jackets or is it just an illusion caused by pocket placement, buttoning point, etc?

^^It does look short. Are you ok with the length,Vox?

What might otherwise be misconstrued as laziness for lack of the search function, is deftly seen as an honorable method to further expand la conversazione sul soggetto.

So, they are shorter but not by much.

well,it doesn't look as balanced as your steed to my eyes. I guess it will work for warmer days. I like the lapels on your suit though,they are not blown out of proportion.

Bill - Nice suit! Glad it's as comfy as it looks. Have you received your corduroy suits from her yet?
post #1167 of 3928

FWIW, I think it looks great Vox. Its certainly shorter, but that's the Neapolitan DNA showing through. No point in going to Mina if you want to force her to mutate her product into a SR one.

 

What did you think of her shirts?
