Spoo, the jacket looks great, esp. given the ordering method. Others have already mentioned the two things I would also note: the slight wrinkle at the back of the collar (which may not even be always there), and the waist. For me, it's not that the waist is too wide, exactly; I suppose it could be narrower, but even if so, probably not by much. No, for me, it's more that there's a relative lack of contouring through the torso. I notice this with my own (admittedly older, and therefore not as great-fitting anyway) MTM stuff like my suit today vs bespoke; it's something about how the cloth is shaped around a body in three dimensions across a wider set of points rather than simply meeting a narrower set of key measurements. It still looks great, though, I'm just noting something that's extraordinarily difficult to manage with MTM anyway, even with in-person fittings.
It's transition weather right now. ughWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
As always, the character of your outfits shines through. Or rather, your character does. Great look.
Thanks. Indeed it is rather unusual DB. It is vintage. It was made in 1970's by Sartoria Santagada from Varese (Lombardy). Fabric is very heavy (English, Sulka on the selvedge, probably not related to famous tie manufacturer). Even if I compare it to contemporary 16oz H. Lesser, this cloth is still heavier. In fact it is a suit. I also have trousers but they are bell-bottoms ;). I personally adore the blue pearl buttons. Very rare sight nowadays.
A rare suit in many respects. It might be possible to change the shape of the trousers to something more conventional?
Thank you for the information about it.
Very full day of work, so in a businessy sort of suit for the first time in about a month, I think. My life is much more odd jacket or casual suit these days, but sometimes it feels a little more structured, so the smarter suits still come out to play occasionally:
