I don't have Foo's photoshop abilities, but it just seems much more pronounced vs many of the other tailors.

Interesting on the height thing...I always thought it makes the wearer taller.

It's probably just one of those things I think I have in my head from a long time ago so I just assumed everyone wanted it like that.

The fact is it is purely stylistic and it can be changed according to the tastes of the client.

No. If you want them opened, Frank will open them, if you want them closed, he'll close them. I left it up to him for mine and they ended up as about as open as I would go, and I like them quite a bit. FWIW, I went to Frank because I liked his shoulders; quarters, at least to me, seem like something most tailors could get to my liking with a lot less effort.

I saw Axel's WBill Linen in the store today. I was tempted to steal it.

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Picking up the finished product on Tuesday, will try to take some pictures. Frank also pulled out a vintage bolt of blue/grey PoW, probably 11/12oz, couldnt resist moving on that one as well.

Loved the fabric. Kept going back for more feels...actually, you may want to have Frank clean it.

I met with Frank for the first time last week to arrange a first commission. He's definitely a friendly guy and seems like a straight shooter. I'm looking forward to seeing how the final product turns out.

I picked up a new suit last week. Probably won't have a picture up for a while because it is a 8/9oz fresco and nowhere near warm enough to wear it. The jacket is perfect, but I think the pants might need slight shortening. I'll probably wear it a few times before I decide. People probably won't be too into it because, well, it is just a vanilla grey suit. Nothing sexy.

You can probably solve that with another crotch grab.

The amount of whiny PM's I got over that was absurd. People are so uptight in this place.

Other than choking on my coffee at my desk from laughing, I thought it was great.

 

Speaking of that suit, you still digging the single forward pleat?

post #897 of 1185
Yes, love it. Got it on the latest one as well.
post #898 of 1185
Has anybody ever tried the box pleat? Could not find a picture of it
post #899 of 1185
You mean like the reverse box pleat? Kind of looks like a trumpet pleat in curtains, right?

I think that looks awkward because one pleat gets a crease down to the hem and other other is just kind of hanging there.

Forward pleats are the jam.
