derk - nice fits too
diaz - looking good. love the avatar.
Were the fittings basted or did you try on a mostly finished suit to check for required alterations?
I think we could say it is bespoke, then.
Pingson, my tailor can do basted fittings for MTM, because he's got a quite close relationship with the factory (he modifies the block patterns himself); but I guess the difference between MTM and bespoke in this case is that MTM is still made from a block pattern, while bespoke is made from scratch (as you've said).
Is your jacket brown or blue? In the first pic I see it brown... second one looks blue.
Top combo pic only, bottom is an acknowledged fail (too close in color to jacket, but my brown flannels are at the cleaners so I just have 3 pairs of light greys now )
The tie is a twill print, perhaps too formal for this, but it has a gummy, chalky hand, much like madder.
I like this... I don't know why, but I will like to see this with a spread collar, not with buttons.
I just love button downs with odd jackets, and prefer spread collars with suits
This is not a "rule", though.
Brown. The second picture is from another fitpic for the sake of the tie. I am thinking, when time allows, to take pictures of all my ties for just this purpose. I know, I know, important elements are lost...but I'm all about the tie.
Understood. I was worrying, cause most of the time I use spread collars.
Ok then, that brown jacket is awesome! I hope that next week I have mine, I ordered one like that, but it's been a very tough work for them... hope this time they nail the fit.
