I agree with PB, quarters could be opened more. This seems to be a consistent issue with Frank (was on my initial suits as well) but one that is easily corrected. I prefer the lapels of the first fitting. I think there is something a little frumpy about the lapels in the second fitting, it is a combination of the low buttoning point and the amount of belly.
I continue to be impressed with how well Frank can fit a shoulder, the shoulder on that jacket really really good.
Phineas on sale is a lot cheaper than Frank will be.
My apologies I was implying PS Bespoke. They quoted me 4k for a suit and 2.8K for a sport coat. For that price I could stick to Field Tailors in DC.
Yes but PC compared to bespoke is not really something you can compare
Why can't they be compared? I guess I like the styling of Phineas Cole. Some of the Bespoke suits I've seen on here are kind of bulky. I've been impressed with the NSM and Ercoles in terms of style and cut.
Bespoke will look different on different bodies hence bespoke, if you're slim, a bespoke suit most probably won't look bulky, if you're top heavy, then it might, as for who to choose, I think if you're willing to pay for a bespoke suit its best to go to a TAILOR rather than a big company on madison avenue. That said, the only way to know if a tailor will work for you is to try them out for one suit and see how that turns out. If it turns out to be you're cup of tea, then stick with them, if not, try someone else.
