It's interesting that you've chosen to replace a summer wardrobe with a tight-fitting style of suit. I think - pace Manton - that you'll want a little more space than Mina will offer initially.

Balls-out bidet.

You keep your pants on though when you do this right?

This coat is the quite the nicest piece of clothing I've ever had the pleasure of trying on. I nearly made Eddie an offer for it before he grew too attached to it.

Mine will not be tight. I think.

So then what kind of lapel roll would the one on my Borrelli jackets be considered? Since I thought they were a 3 roll 2, but the top button hole opening on my jackets it not shown as much as the top button hole opening on the jacket Dino was wearing today. This is what I was attempting to explain in my previous post. Thanks.

A nice effect is when the lapel rolls through a bit of that top buttonhole, braking up the line. True on a Brooks No. 1. True on an A&S. And true for this buttoning on Italian jackets. On a hand sewn buttonhole, therefore, you want the finished side to be the opposite of the bottom two, unless you have a double finished hole like Oxxford does (used to?)

I figured that the chest was going to be lean during the fitting but I didn't realize the slimness of the sleeves. I think the added bulk of the sleeve lining to an already tapered sleeve is really what I'm feeling at "tight". This is least noticeable when I'm wearing a slim shirt.

My sleeves were pretty full. Not a problem. I wanted a bit more drape in the chest but the coat was wearable as it was.

The pants were not.

3 roll 2.5

Post a pic. The Borrellis that I have are all true 3/2s, but they are all Linosa/Sorrentos.

My Mina at the fitting stage really wasn't that tight at all - about the same as A&S

On all the jackets that I have the lapel button hole is not seen unless you turn the lapel. The rest of what you described is pretty close to what I can recall from meeting with Dino and Mina today. For jackets that they are making for you, will the lapel button be on the show side, like Dino's or will it be hidden as I mentioned.

He means that they are finished on both sides. That's how most Italian tailors do 3-roll-2s.

yeah, I've easily gained 10 pounds (be quiet alliswell) since my first coat was made and it's still not tight in any way and the sleeves are bigger than what most would consider "normal". Also the sleevecaps are not Sciamat-ish, they calm down.
