PB - looks good. Have you thought about widening the lapels a bit?

PB. Looks good mate. ^ Agree with Axelman.

Thinking about starting with Ercole's to be my CMT tailor to supplement Chan. Can he do more english/structured styles or is it very italian (I would imagine most of you guys are requesting minimal padding etc)? I have spoken to them on the phone but personal experience would be better evidence.

Thanks!

I've seen a lot of English styled stuff...so yes, more than capable.

What does that look like with the collar up Rob?
post #637 of 1169
The default style of Ercole, the father, is a structured shoulder. Frank is more accomodating to requests for a softer look.
post #638 of 1169
That's very true. Ercole prefers coats of armor with roped shoulder.
post #639 of 1169
Robs coat looks even sicker in person, even when random strands of thread attach themselves to it. I was pretty envious seeing it up close.

I find I get the best results when both Ercole and Frank are involved in my projects.

That's why I keep the old lady around!

Collar up for DR. It does have a functional button on the back of the lapel but I was too lazy to do it all up today...

Two pics from my latest fitting with Frank. Fabric is a 13/14oz Harrisons woolen flannel:

Belated, but... this looks superb.
The tie is also one of the finest (and more interesting) than I have seen in a long time.

I realized I owed pics. The wife has been out all day and my 40D's battery is charging so crappy, small iPhone pics is all I have to offer. Please excuse the lighting in the first 2 and the filthy mirror in the 3rd. The shirt is from Ercoles as well. Suit is a 9oz LP Navy Birdseye. I'm very pleased for the first suit, though I'm sure as I wear it I'll think of tweaks for next time.

Looks nice, however it also has Frank's signature too short hem.
post #645 of 1169
My recent fitting with Frank. First is a Harrison's Moonbeam SP, second is a Carlo Barbera for H Lesser suit. FYI, those aren't my shirt cuffs in the Moonbeam pic, but the unfinished sleeve lining. Comments/suggestions welcome!
