Enjoy

Is it just me or do the vents not sit flat on either? It looks like they're popping fairly well open.

Happy to be corrected if this is just a stylistic element, or if it is entirely forgivable.

PG just keeps coming with better fits, and suits. Inspiring stuff!

In the absence of a proper POV and (especially) in the context of everything else, you are IMO really missing the forest for the trees.

Take care of the larger details, and the smaller ones will take care of themselves - or better still, not matter... unless you are one of those types that populate the internet who enjoy pointing them out.

I spotted a chap in West End, Brisbane this morning, carrying a PJ suit bag.

Don't suppose that was anyone here?

I'd like to know from those with P Johnson jackets, particularly their rendition of the spalla camicia, how do you find the shoulders in terms of "feel"?

I've handled two jackets, though I'm yet to order my first, and on both I found the shoulder to "feel" somewhat stiff to touch, but when worn to look very, very soft in its construction.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Wearing mine now. Feels soft to wear and a little stiffer to touch (only a little though) but nowhere near a full, stiff or padded as "traditional/normal" suit shoulders. I love the slimming and flattering soft shape they give. Visiting Tom in South Melbourne on Wednesday to order a few more of their wonderful shirts.

I have a soft shouldered jacket. The padding is quite firm. The chest canvas is also not as soft as I would like. They do push the concept of their suiting being "soft", but it isn't really all that soft in my opinion. A bit of structure didn't hurt anyone though. And a MTM business with no fittings would struggle to achieve a good completely unstructured product.

IMO Herringbone Osaka jackets are much softer in construction overall. That being said - PJohnson jackets don't look stiff at all to my eye. With the MTO option now available from HB, it will be interesting to have a comparison between HB and PJohnson - jacket wise. I just need to scrounge up enough cash first smile.gif

Then again, PJohnson has so many fabrics to tempt you with.

Sorry to rain on your parade, but the H'bone MTO Program is based on the Scabal block (standard strong shoulder) and not the soft-shouldered Osaka.

This is a MAJOR disappointment for me; someone who has been hoping that one day, I will be able to get an Osaka cut to my dimensions.

Go figure.

I too would like an Osaka cut to my dimensions, something quite close to 41/35, but alas I wait in vain..

Since I've never did get around to getting any pictures of my initial PJohnson commission to put up I thought I'd share this photo from a recent social occasion that at least gives some idea of the result. Hopefully it's obvious that I'm the one on the left smile.gif

Far from ideal poses of course, but for me it was interesting to contrast the PJ to the OTR Hugo Boss + alterations, which didn't look too bad at first glance at the time but when able to be studied at all next to a well made MTM has obvious shortcomings.

And the wine was nice.

"The measurements and pattern-cutting is then sent to a specialised workshop in The Netherlands that P.Johnson has a working partnership with.".. P.Johnson suits aren't made in Australia?
