CBD WAYWRN: An Experiment - Page 245

Parker - dig the suit. Is that Minnis Fresco 0524? Been considering that recently if I ever need another suit.

Thx guys. Tie is regular silk from Drakes. Suit is Minnis fresco, but I'm not sure what number. It's the lighter sort of grayish navy.

Unfortunately Chan made the shoulders a bit too narrow, and there is, like, no give with the fresco. Think it's possible to take off the sleeves and widen the shoulder?

You were joking in the WAYWRN thread that nobody was going to comment on your outfit in this thread, so I'll play along. Everything looks well put together. Cool tie, and I like the shirt fabric. There's just something a bit off in the upper half. Your shirt collar looks like it's falling down and forward. Your collars would benefit from sitting up higher on your neck. The lapels also appear to be bowing out a little bit, which is why the collar point doesn't seem to sit under your right lapel. I'm nitpicking. The outfit is fine. These are things I noticed, though.

Yeah, I'm sure it's the 0524. The fact that I knew that right off the bat kind of sickens me. Redoing the shoulders would certainly be tough. I may explain things to Patrick and at the very least they could start by adding more drape along the sides and opening the back seam a bit. If there's some padding in there you can have them remove most of that too. If that doesn't work perhaps making the shoulders wider is what would need to happen.

Tie by the fabulous gshen!

I agree with Manton and Trini - this is indeed the best fit in this thread in days.

Can someone with some experience explain to me why SpooPoker's jacket's tend to splay outwards along the line of the lapels? Chest of the jacket too small?
