That's strange, Frank never have me any pushback on any of those things.

Yeah I was sort of shocked too since I had seen all of your photos, Rob's photos, forex's photos....

I didn't know what to make of it but the most recent pics of MKarim and jacksonvillian are the style he was trying to guide me towards

Actually your post was the reason I didn't bring up a 3 roll 2 at all. I deferred to him on a lot of little details that I didn't particularly care about, then I just brought up the barchetta pocket as a question, and he seemed happy to do it and excited I asked. He went in to why he avoids some neapolitan touches but brought up the dimples in the shoulders specifically; I just kind of read in a bit of disappointment that he doesn't get to do it given the context and tone of the conversation, and I could have been mistaken. The only thing where there was any real back and forth was over a 1/4" on the cuffs of the pants, and I didn't push very hard at all and said I would defer to him, which ended up being to go with my request. In general he seemed very accommodating; though my requests were more questions than requests and seemed to end up with him pulling jackets he was working on from the back to see what I preferred and what he thought would work on me. That said, I didn't go in with a certain fit I wanted him to copy, we just had a conversation about what he likes to do, what he thinks would work best for me, and some things I'm drawn to and if they would or wouldn't work for me. He seemed very easy going outside of the cuffs.

Sounds like you had a good give and take conversation that you can build on. Frank was easy going with me too and I hope i'm not giving the impression of anything otherwise. I did go in with a very general configuration in mind (3 roll 2 with soft shoulder and wider, straight cut lapels) and I guess he just wanted to do something different (for what seemed like non aesthetic reasons). I think deferring to the tailor is a smart thing to do in many cases, but for me, this didnt seem like one of those cases.

I never mentioned I wanted 3 roll 2, I asked him for a 3 button coat. I just never button the top button, at the end, I asked him to roll the lapel just under the third button. It is more 3 roll 2.5, I don't know why people get 3 roll 2 and don't like it.
You are probably better off to go with a regular shoulder Frank makes if you have sloped shoulders, his neopolitan jacket accentuates sloped shoulders, I actually regret I asked for it. If you have very squared shoulders, you may give it a try.
If you have any questions, feel free to pm.

Yeah, the coat looks really good. The coat will be perfect for NYR's walks to work this winter.

The girlfriend just sent me another pic of this suit, so I guess I throw it up here.
