Indeed a fine persiflage! you did a splendid job of channeling dear ed. Wouldve been more accurate if you were wearing a humbler while typing though.
@ Don Cologne have you thought about adding a third row of buttons, effectively creating a triple breasted suit? you could become a trendsetter.
Kidding aside, I assume you've also moved the upper buttons. I'd either suggest to remove them entirely, turning the jacket in a 4x1 constellation, or properly redo them without shanking the buttons.
As is, the jacket seems very off due to the disproportionate overlap.
Upper buttons are removed. Maybe I post some photos from the work.
I got my pants and my shirt back from the tailor today. I had 4 pairs lengthened by an inch and had a french cuff shirt converted to a button cuff in order to lengthen the sleeve. It all came out great. The pants have a slight break when wearing oxfords, but don't look so high watery with loafers. The shirt cuff looks nice, but I need him to move the button over for my watch allowance. All in all, I have an idea about what inseam works for me now. Most of my pants were around a 29 inseam, but I need a 30 or 30.5. (I had them hemmed with no break before I washed them. They shrank.) My shirts sleeves are 34, but I need a 34.5. I'll be taking several more items to him next month as well. Thank you for all of your recommendations over the past few months.
