How do you feel about this buttoning point, Diaz? I'd be happy to have it in a Paddock, but this is a 3 to 2, right? I liked the swelled chest on you and would keep it for future commissions.

How do you feel about a cupped skirt? I know that you chose the flared one to give the illusion of a greater chest to waist ratio, but, to my eye, it's a bit overdone. Btw, I'd recommend the Rubinacci's Victory square (navy and cream), way better than just cream silk, which is a bit too "prom" to me.

Yeah HF, you're right in that it could have been a bit longer. I just specified 1 cm shorter than my previous jacket, but didn't take into account that it had the fronts dropped by 2 cm + fronts longer by 1 cm, adjustments the new one doesn't have, so as a result, it is 4 cm shorter in total.

 

At least I'm extremely pleased with the resulting silhouette, it's the only jacket I have that makes me look like a man :p

I quite like the buttoning point, though next time I might ask for a true 3 button roll (this is a 3 to 2 indeed). I wouldn't do the top button, so I don't think I'd ask for a paddock, which "requires" the top one to be fastened.

 

The jacket was a bit of a mess when it came from the factory. They rolled the lapels  to the top button, and as a result they looked diminutive and the buttoning point way too high. They probably mistook it for a 2-button with an extremely high stance, because the third (bottom) button wasn't sewn in. The tailor had to re-roll the lapels and I'm not sure what will happen in the long run.

 

I've tried to photoshop a cupped skirt and I'm not happy with the resulting silhouette. Could be better IRL, but I don't want to do it right now. Maybe if I drop some pounds...

 

I had a Rubinacci Real Teatro di San Carlo which could have worked here, but it was stolen along with some other goods :(

Cappelli challis once again, end-on-end Mercer shirt, lightweight flannel trousers and cream silk

 

Is the jacket cloth H&S by any chance?

In stitches: best jacket I've seen on you, and overall very nice.

I might have chosen suede shoes with that outfit, but those you are wearing work well.

Aurora borealis - perhaps!
Eternal night - not yet! I was once in Trondheim on the shortest day; even then, the sun rose at 0945 and set at 1430.

I hope that Holdfast considers the tie to be inappropriate only with cords, for I think that in the ensemble pictured it's great. Brown trousers with the other colours I find a little odd.

Thank you very much, Roy. Suede shoes probably would've been nice, I will try and remember to bust out one of my pairs the next time I wear this jacket.

Yes, I think that is what he meant. Thanks!

I do like myself a low buttoning point, taking the today fashionable high buttoning as the standard, but yours seem to be a bit too low for my eye, perhaps there's some photography distortion going on.

About the Paddock. Not sure if you need to button both button, though you certainly could, as I've many photographs and illustrations where only the bottom one is buttoned. After having seen your photograph, though it isn't a Paddock, made me want to have a Paddock made for myself. Next autumn, perhaps.

You've gone through a few obnoxious situations with this MTM operation, haven't you? It's a shame, because your jackets seems to be improving constantly. Do you've another possible source?

Also, sorry to hear about the theft.
