Agreed on both counts, and I imagine Manton's suggestion about button stance could solve at least some of the lack of waist definition.

I think that is just Frank's preferred buttoning point.

Just wondering is the breast pocket seen below the standard/default. Or was this a request made by you, thanks in advance.

Actually I told him to move it down, I guess it's my fault. Between the flannel and this one that was the only difference, no pattern changes.

Standard. Frank offered to make more of a barchetta breast pocket which I may do for the next one.

Thanks ET. The suit is maybe a shade darker than I had anticipated. It makes it less summery but also more dressy and versatile. It is quite hard to tell it is linen from afar. That my change as it breaks in and wrinkles. Pretty sure this is the same W. Bill that Medtech had made up from Mina.

I like the look of barchetta with no pocket square but I think I'm coming to prefer straight for when I wear a PS, especially a white linen.

I'm excited to hear about how you think it performs in warmer weather.

That's definitely lower than what I've seen from him.

Mine has a similar button position.

I like it. I mean it is summer suit, not really meant to be too close. It is very comfy. I mean the difference between this button point and some of my others is like a matter of 3/4".
post #927 of 1158
shape of booth's is fine. could be more nipped but that's purely a matter of preference. I do think the button stance is off, though.
post #928 of 1158
I've been thinking about having the pockets lowered on future commissions around 1/2". Manton, what would you think of that?

It's definitely noticeable in the 2nd pic. Maybe it's the angle.

You can make it look 3 dimensional / bespoke (I'm a good way) without making it close or restrictive. If anything, it might be slightly more comfortable with a little bit of drape in the check and a little less baggy inthe waist.
