There's something about them that I like. I'd probably wear it a bit more casually - contexts where I'm not full-on casual but not in a suit either - but regardless, it looks good.

Thanks guys..Holdfast- Yea the tie I should gone with a darker shade of gray retrospectively..the watch is one of two rolex's that I own. I really don't wear either one because I'm just not a fan of metal  bands. I wore this for a wedding just because its been 3 years since I wore it last and I just got it serviced. So, I thought I'd break it out. I guess it's more of a casual watch. I just like that its smaller than some of my dressy watches at 37mm. So it slips easily underneath the shirt cuff. Love the sports coat by the way. Is that made to measure? If so from where? I really like the shoulders..

I steer away from the really small Italian designer brands like D&G, Dior Homme and such.. Plus I have a tailor that used to be a master tailor for a fashion house in L.A back in the 80's so he knows how to work wonders. Ill be in NY at the end of the year T! We should link up

So, I finally took the plunge and went custom. I'm not revealing the maker to get honest feedback. This was all done via email, no in person fittings. Please give me your thoughts, good and bad. Both myself and the maker want to hear. :

jacket looks amazing. fit looks spot on.

Looks like it fits you very well. It could use more shape in the front (only the head on pics make me think this so maybe it's the angle or how you're standing) but as far as fit goes, it's surprisingly good for all email communication

Amazing fit, for dialing it in by email. Heck, pretty great fit regardless! Like the design and fabric. Nice choice with the patch pockets.

I really agree with all of your commets. What can I say? Lack of dress code is allowing me to wear that kind of crazy stuff sometimes shog[1].gif

Looks good to me, Spoo. Maybe see if Mr. Despos & Co. have any suggestions over in the Ask A Tailor thread...

Looks very nice to me, Espú. Just in the back part, near the bottom of the collar... is that tiny bump? I don't know how to call it, in here tailors call it "Arruga Madre" that would be like "Mother Wrinkle". laugh.gif

Yeah choc I like how you mitigate your size by closely tailored suits when for so many people like you they would try to hide their size in looser fits and actually achieve the reverse!
