Hampton a cutaway collar would be perfect for your style.
By the way, nice, you are good in this purple label inspired style, but miss the water and take a drink biggrin.gif

Stitches pants are not too tapered. They are probably barely tapered. Stitches has slightly knocked-knees, which make his knees bent in-wards. The opposite of bow-legged. Having knocked knees makes the outseam of trousers fall inwards at the knees. This gives them a tapered appearance. I too have this issue, however bespoke pants hide it completely. If he wants them to fall better he can get the sides of the trousers underneath the wasitband taken up into the waistband. This makes the legs fall straight down without buckling at the knee. So in effect the outseam would be shortened from the top.

Cheers for the thumbs up smile.gif

 

 

 

 

^^^^^   David R that's a mega-outstanding DB.  Dunno how u manage to make the shoulders IMO so structured-but-not-blocky.  Is it because u cut them narrower than the natural width? -  the sleeve in that pic appears to begin at the tip of your clavicle rather than out at the end of the shoulder.

And I am sorry, but the slippers are ridiculous - I really hope that was just for sitting around the house. Unfortunately you just don't (yet) have the insouciance required to pull off slippers with a suit!

As a few recent fits evidence, I'm in need of such a service. Could someone who has done this please PM me and give me a sense of a) roughly how much it cost (we're not talking Kiton, so I need to do a cost/benefit analysis); and b) lessons learned (i.e., anyone have this done and have to scrap the trou because it ruined the fit). I don't want to derail the thread, so please PM.
Thanks in advance.

i had a tailor here do it on one of pants that were billowing in the thigh. she did a great job and it was maybe 10 bucks i think.

plus one. david rocks the house.

I always appreciate David's fits because they are always so different than the SF-standard soft Neapolitan cut, but he does them so well. Really makes you take a step back out of the SF groupthink.

fascinating. as the owner of the pants, and my legs, ill chime in here. they are not a super slim pair of pants, i think the leg opening is 9 inches, which is my preference. as pB said, my knee are indeed slightly knocked, and i have larger thighs that also factor in. mostly though, its the fact that it is not a great angle and i do not photograph well. IRL, they do not look weird at all.

pB and others have met me, and have seen me in pants, they my verify or contradict that my fits look way better IRL, if they like.
