It fits pretty darn great, it is slim, but not tight. Has shape, but there is no pulling here or there. I have some jackets that are much more wasited, but it disrupts a lot of lines, where this one drapes nicer. I am surprised at how it feels on me and how much I can move in it. It has very high armholes and with the dart under the lapel I can pretty much do anything without the collar lifting away from my neck, which drives me nuts on my MTM stuff. There are a few little tweaks that I feel it needs, but this was the first one Frank cut for me so my pattern will evolve. Frank, was actually really excited about this one, he really liked the shoulders I chose and he was thrilled with the way my first suit by him came out. That meant a lot to me. I didn't post any pictures, but the trousers flatter me so much better than any of my MTM. I almost cried at my second fitting they were so nice, however Frank said next time they will be perfect. I don't think they can be any more perfect, but I won't stop him from giving it a shot.
I will post fit pics soon. I am sure a lot of people are going to be *ahem* pissed at my flat front trousers with, *ahem* 2" cuffs and side tabs.
I want to wear this one a bit so how I like the shoulders and such. I am thinking about getting a solid navy for my next go around. I might actually ask for some drape in that one and a differen't kind of shoulder, who knows.
