I agree with all of that.

The Chan looks more fitted (not just slim). But I'd drop the patch pockets a half inch and lower the lapel roll, unless you prefer a 3 roll 2.5.

Yeah I asked for 3 roll 2.5, but agree that the pockets could be slightly lower. Still, I really like the jacket (the latest stuff I got fits even better).

Prozach, hope your order turns out well. Report back!

I think it came out quite well for a first shot and with no alterations. The following are my personal critiques:
  • For being the most natural shoulder option they offer, it's certainly not a very natural shoulder. I don't like how the padding extends so far past the shoulder seam, which you can really see in the right shoulder. Next time I will have him bring the shoulders in a touch, which I think will help. The sleeve pitch is off, although not as off as it looks in this photo (slightly sloped sidewalk affected my posture).
  • The jacket could be slightly more fitted in the chest, but I think this is pretty good for a wedding, funeral, and civil servant drone suit. I am happy with it.
  • The back looks good to me. Wrinkling in the photo is due to excess shirt fabric.
  • The trousers are, in my opinion, perfect and the best-fitting pair I own.
  • The quality of construction is excellent all around, as best as I can tell.

There are many more EAT/Tom James suits in my future. Please give me your thoughts.
