That shows how hard is to get a good robot pose. This one shows a short front balance evidenced by the overlapping quarters, by the bowing lapels, and by the converging vertical lines of the pattern. All due to an unnatural pose, probably.
Thanks! They're from Suitsupply, an older model in a fit called Brescia. Their current flannels are a bit more tapered.
Thanks a lot!
PS love your ties, might get one soon
Follow the vertical lines with your eyes. They're not parallel, which the should be, they're converging, result of a short front balance. In my opinion, that's not a fit problem, just the result of assuming an unnatural stance, for which he was not fitted for. Some examples of a proper front balance:
That last example from Vox is great. It's not just perfectly balanced, the hem and the pockets are perfectly parallel to the plaid and likely to the ground. I know it's not a fit problem, but I don't really like when the front is longer than the back and the hem looks "diagonal" when seen from the front (as in the other 2 examples), rather than straight. The desire for a parallel hem is what led me to f*ck up the balance on my latest jacket; the MTM block pattern is designed for a longer front and it should have been corrected from the bottom, not from the top :/
Lapels aren't bowing, but there's definitely a balance issue outside of that. It makes sense, as I don't stand quite that straight too often and was fitted in a more natural pose. I suppose that by standing straight like that, I raise my shoulders causing the two sides of the jacket to pivot around the button point, pulling the quarters closer together.
I'll be checking this when I get home.
You aren't crazy, I just don't always have to have cuffs. It has become way too normative here, IMO.
