I agree, the suit looks great.

Thanks, suit is Scabal mohair (I love the texture and threads of purple, blue, green, etc all running through it) and made by Savile Row in Seoul.

Yeah, I do wish he'd quit spamming. At the least post pictures--a list of brands is not helpful.

(my own critique is that the button stance is a little too high, lapels too slim, leather wrist strap is extraneous, and I'm sure someone is going to take offense at the lack of belt)

Nice fit. Agreed that the button stance is a bit high--wish there wasn't so much shirt peeking out at the bottom, it's distracting. Still, it fits well.

He did have cancer recently accounting for losing a TON of weight. Sorry if I made you feel like a jerk (would be nice if he stopped spamming this thread though since he doesn't really do cbd at all)

Ah, it does look much nicer. Button stance still a bit high, but on the whole very nice.

Eeps, yeah, wish I hadn't said that now... Do wish he'd stop the spamming though.

LOL.

If I could nitpick one thing about PG's recent PJ fits is that I'm not a fan of the narrower lapel.

How does a tailor do such a good job at dealing with the extreme slope of PG's shoulders, yet at the same time leave so much mess below the buttoning point. Unless it's a case of pictures not representing reality very well, it looks like the top half of the coat is a perfect fit and the bottom half is a land of ripples. teh quarters drape ?

He took a pic after a day's work and the material picks up creases more easily than other materials (see my pics of how my suit looks before vs the hands in pocket of after a couple days of moving around).

The gorge is a little low, but for a 20 yr old SC it doesn't look too dated.

Nice. Personally I don't find the collar too small.

Looks good - it looks 'contemporary' rather than 'classic' but still CBD IMO

Nice. Must be one of the most CBD paisley's in existence

The combination of the lavender/purple and the suiting probably steer this clear of CBD (one or the other would probably just be okay) but I like it a lot regardless.

+1 Still high res. photos, and processing always emphasise these things - in real life they wouldn't be nearly as apparant.
