 I think the length looks okay as is for your proportions, maybe a tiny bit more if that's what you're more comfortable with. I certainly disagree with the 1.25 inches, but I'm as far from an expert as you can get, and my eye is very amateurish.

I has such a clean look, I will also add length for about 3/4 inches to give a better proportion, well done and great look blazer and suit

It will be lengthened slightly. Also adjusting the gorge slightly upwards.
Still trying to decide if I like the lining on the lavender windowpane Moonbeam--my better half convinced me to go with a pinkish peach lining. Unexpected, to say the least.

Both look shapeless to me, hopefully the end product will look better.

They have a healthy amount of shape at the right places, this is from a guy who really prefers slim & shapely. They'll turn out awesome.

It probably has more to do with the shapeless wearer (that would be me) rather than the suit. shog[1].gif

I think they both look fine and are certainly not shapeless.

Suit still has a couple tweaks that need to be made, but here is the Moonbeam jacket:

That looks great, Gopher.

I would open the fronts a bit more beginning below the second button

I was also thinking that the quarters should be opened a touch, and that the lapels roll a bit too low. In fact, in the earlier fitting picture, the quarters looked a bit more open and the lapel roll started a bit higher up. I also think it may need to be lengthened a tiny bit.



Thoughts?

In short, I prefer the earlier fitting, overall. Specifically, what you said.

I agree with your assessment.

Gopher, post pictures of side and back. I don't know why fronts are more closed, could be balance issue.
Re lapel roll, it seems like lapels are bowing so maybe not enough room in the chest?
