post #47311 of 78724

I think wider lapels wouldn't hurt, Pingson. But it seems to fit well elsewhere, so...

This is a new SC I received last week. Trying it out to see what, if anything, that needs to be altered. So far I'm very happy with the sleeve lengths - pretty spot on, which is very unusual for me. And the cloth is really nice, soft as a baby's bottom biggrin.gif

Very nice Pingson! I agree with Mr. Díaz.

Good comment! I haven't had the jacket pressed since receiving it and it spent the better part of a week jammed in a small box. Maybe that could explain the somewhat funky looking lapels, we'll see when I get it back from the tailor. There are a few alterations I need to do and I will take the opportunity to have it pressed then as well.

Thanks! I'm most happy with the colour, perfect shade of blue for me!

^^^^^   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.

Thanks Pliny.

The shoulders are padded by hand and theres a very light pad in there. I have quite broad square shoulders for my frame so what your seeing is me. I did have this one cut narrower than the natural shoulder to decrease the look of them, especially because I was going for roping which emphasizes the shoulders. The sleeve was cut fuller at the crown and shaped which allows movement and comfort even though in a strict sense the shoulder line is narrow.

If that makes sense?

The collar points reach below the lapels; just the stance. As far as the trouser color, there is quite a bit of contrast. There's probably more of an issue between tie and pants than jacket and pants.

 

 

And the candor is definitely appreciated (especially as its constructively so) cheers.gif

 

The colors on the new picture looks much better! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif 

The tie could use some more contrast in relation to the jacket, I think. Forgot to comment on the high buttoning stance on the jacket, have you considered this for your next commissions?

Glad that you haven't took my comments in a bad way. biggrin.gif

^ Suit fabric looks great. Not sure how you could add colour to that shirt / tie combo. It's not easy with a solid grey suit.

Edit: I quite like the monotone theme.

Double dimples are a pet hate of mine frown.gif

Looks similar to a fit that I do that is in much better taste, (i.e. no stupid flower) devil.gif
