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. :

I think it is pretty amazing, both in fit and in overall impression. I might suggest a slightly wider tie to balance the lapels, but do they MAKE a tasteful tie wide enough to balance those lapels? Maybe this could be one of the rare occasion where you go Windsor...maybe a bigger/ wider knot would be more in proportion. The tailor should know that while this is a perfectly Spooish garment, he could get some guy without your stance, build, chutzpah and all around Spooiness in trouble (i.e. most mortals could not pull this off).
