agree with all this except the last line. this is specifically where i come for advice. I get what youre saying though. He'd benefit a GREAT deal by lurking awhile and learning first.


but i do enjoy posts like his when they come up every few months. wink.gif the pre-sf innocence always tickles me.

God damn you do basics well.

 

Those lapels are gorgeous.

Before I knew how to wear a tie outside of a suit (I didn't own an odd jacket until joining SF)

I will still wear a tie without a jacket, sleeves rolled up. Not with jeans though.

I moved the center button on the coat a little to give it some more overlap, and now the quarters are not as aggresively open when standing straight. Still debating with myself if I should use this jacket as a base for future commissions or just switch tailors. The right shoulder and armscye fits like a bespoke jacket, the left not so much. Long front balance should be fixable on a new jacket... would love to hear the opinion of a tailor working with a MTM program.

I like me a good lapel, but I can't get behind these.  I think they're a bit too wide, but could work.  I think they would look better with a higher gorge and straight as opposed to curved corners.  I love the tie though.

My thoughts exactly. I was thinking of keeping the same lapel width as I may ask for slightly more extended shoulders next time, but I'd like a higher gorge and non-rounded lapel points - both of which I'm not sure are possible with this MTM.

Sounds like Kent Wang/Tiberias. High gorge, straight points. But I really like what you have there and I'd personally stick to that. But that's me.

Well this is local MTM, I doubt I'd get anything over the net. In any case, it strikes me as odd that a MTM program would only offer rounded lapel points, but that's the impression I got last time. I need to ask again.

I agree with AAS on the notch of the lapel.  It is a little too curved for my taste but not objectively wrong.  This cloth looks very soft but with a "spring" back into shape.  What is it?

Nicely done on tie width, collar point length and spread, and jacket lapel width - these are all harmonious.  Is the tie a corral color? 

I can't tell from the photo about the front balance, we'll just take your word for it!  Is that a ticket pocket and are those all besom pockets?

Sleeve width looks good from here. 

 

What are you pointing at?

The cloth is an end-on-end 100's wool, with a slightly rough texture, from Holland & Sherry's Intercity book. It's very nice, albeit a bit suit-ish - I might just turn the jacket into a BlazerSuit™. That's indeed a ticket pocket, and all hip pockets have flaps, they're just tucked in.

 

The tie is more of a peach color, darker than it looks in the pic.

 

Not sure what I'm pointing at, lol. Hand is just resting that way lol8[1].gif

Ya sorry brother. I know the clothes arent ironed. I didn't think of ironing before posting here because basically I just wanted to know of the color matches or not. Sorry for spamming. Just wanted to show. Ok I'll ask in other threads or different sites. :) Thank you. :)
