All of your recent combinations are very well chosen imo.

I appreciate both of your comments. While I do "miss" a little flamboyance here and there - people grow up, mature, advance in careers, lifestyles and tastes change... its part of the growth process. Im not saying Ill be wearing only solids as time progressively goes on, but you learn by trial and error what works and what doesn't, and what you like the most. I am most comfortable in my current incarnation, I will tell you that.

"Very nice!"

Thanks gents! Side vents, for sure. What can't be seen is the back, which is incredibly clean. Not quite sure how they did it.

I'm quite pleased with the way it came out. It was pretty much the realization of what I had in mind. I'm also quite pleased to have found a tailor that I can trust and that can help me decide what works and what doesn't for me. They're really a pleasure to work with and were able to address all my concerns easily. There is also a ton of hand work on the blazer. All the pockets and buttonholes and nearly all the seams were done quite beautifully by hand. The only machine stitching I can find is the bottom part where the lining attaches to the fabric and the upper lapel seam. Next time I'm going to try for a bit different shoulder style, perhaps something a bit more relaxed, that is, if they're open to it. The shoulders are quite padded, which is actually fine for me since I don't have built up shoulders. The biggest problem I notice is that the armholes are, get this, a bit too high. Still, this is definitely the best fitting jacket I've ever had and for my first bespoke commission with a new tailor I can't complain. Finally a silhouette that I like.

musicguy, thank you for sharing!

Is the tailor you are going to located in Santiago?
Everybody talks about Italian, British and US tailors, I would be interested if the Southamericans have just the same approach or if they do something different.
Different place, different people, you know?

HI. "Trousers should be worn on the natural waist" ( Alan Flusser). Here i see a low rise of trousers and also the first button of your jacket that is too hight. In this way we see belt and shirt. Perhaps fashion, but not classic.

I agree, I don't understand why low waist trouser are so popular these days, it is so ugly and makes people look short

well, im 6'4" so looking a little shorter is fine by me. I also have a short torso and feel uncomfortable the way i look in a longer rise trouser. And if youre not comfortable in your clothing, it doesnt matter how close youre following the "classic" rules.

There's certainly an argument to be made for "grounding" a very light-colored outfit with darker shoes, but I think the ones you chose were both too dark and too brogued for the seersucker suit. It's a nitpick, though. You still looked terrific.
