Is that the Zegna you bought?

I couldn't follow that. But a sex joke formed and fizzled in my head. I think it involved me having sex within some of your wool. So....sorry for that.
Thanks Canta. Re. cleaning, it's a room that's only really used when my kids are visiting, so I guess it's neglected! Haven't been in there in about two months until looking for a long mirror yesterday; I shall issue instructions...wouldn't want anyone thinking I live in squalor around here.
You're kind of right. It's not tight, but the fit is closer around the shoulders and chest than lower down; it's actually a little loose around the lower belly (I'm fat, but clearly not as fat as my previous tailor thinks). As pB said, the short, narrow lapel and the high third button undone, do make the top part protrude a touch too. The three button variation on this one was probably a mistake if I'm honest (Alexei Sayle circa 1983 anyone?), but perhaps I'll take your advice and get it let out a little up top, and/or roll the lapel over the top button. In the mean time, I'll leave this one undone to hang more naturally, with the matching waistcoat.
By the way, I've just picked up a heavy country tweed suit with which I'm travelling tomorrow. I meant to mention it as the design was inspired latterly by your avatar, specifically the DB shawl lapel waistcoat. My children will face-palm, and possible others. But thanks all the same for your inadvertent assistance, I love it. :)
