I would reduce the leg opening (1cm may do) from the seat to the hem and I would lengthen the waistband fastener.

 

Thanks for the suggestion. Those were RTW, my MTM pants are usually a bit slimmer (see today's example, which has a leg opening 2.5 cm smaller). I don't know if my MTM program allows for waistband fastener extension, but I might ask.

Nice fit, considering the pedigree!
Just saw your brown(?) trousers and it's exactly what I envisioned, much flattering.

I wanted to avoid buying any more RTW jackets, but sales have started and after going through every single jacket in my habitual department store, I ended up getting this unlined, unstructured, unpadded POW, with a set-in sleevehead (is this what they call "spalla camicia"?), from a pretty well known Spanish local brand called "Mirto". Thought it was rather nice, and fits well (needs sleeve length and sleeve tapering altered, I guess I'll post a full pic later in the afternoon).

 

PS is from Kent Wang. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

More vintage: Trousers, shirt and tie from the 40´s or 50´s. The suspenders are BB and much later.

 

 

I call this my "safety tie". The model the policemen use for security reasons.

Nice!

Where's the shirt from. Collar is great

Here's the second vintage bespoke three-piece I picked up before the holidays. This one was made for the same guy as the grey one from a couple of days ago, but 5 years earlier, in 1960. I think he was slightly heavier then as the trousers have more room in the seat - although this could reflect an the fact that this one is from before things got a bit sharper in the early to mid-60s. In any case, I am going to have the trousers altered. But otherwise, this is also great and the fabric is again wonderful: the first picture is most accurate for colour, but close up IRL it is a rich navy/mid-blue pinpoint. Worn today with a CT Black Label shirt and an Engineered Garments bow tie. Cufflinks (in the close-ups) were made by a jewelry designer in Edinburgh from old watch parts. The braces (suspenders for those from the USA) are also vintage 1960s silk from Countess Mara.

It's a lot of fun, but unfortunately it does also look stylistically like the kind of tie you expect policemen to wear!

the bow tie is far too large for your face. suit looks good, but the bowtie looks cartoonish.

Thanks. It's from my habitual department store, too; brand is "Emidio Tucci". Quite cheap stuff. My tailor took it apart and re-made it to fit, the outcome is great and in the end it was cheaper than his own MTM. lol8[1].gif

Hmm. I see what you're saying but I don't mind a bit of humour in what I am wearing. I did try a smaller (and more formal) bow tie this morning but it somehow didn't seem to work. Maybe I will try it again now...
