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.

I have to disagree with most of that...especially the lapels bowing.

Thanks! They're from Suitsupply, an older model in a fit called Brescia. Their current flannels are a bit more tapered.

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 :/

Hey fellas! Long time no post.

^Nice, but could use cuffs, navy socks, and a lower buttoning pt, perhaps.

Thanks for the thumbs and comments earlier, guys.

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.

Feck the cuffs, it rocks as is.

post #64137 of 78717
^ I like cuffs for all but the most casual (unironed chinos or linen) or formal (tux or a very formal suit) of pants. I particularly find it hard to wear a sport coat w/ uncuffed pants. But maybe I'm crazy.

Clag, I agree on the balance (looks off) and lapels (look good). One thing I've often noticed on your jackets is that the lower patch pockets look a little high and/or short. I can't remember now. It's probably a matter of taste for the most part, but fwiw I prefer mine to start even with the lowest buttonhole on the front, or maybe 1/4" below, and end about 1.5 inches from the bottom hem.

You aren't crazy, I just don't always have to have cuffs. It has become way too normative here, IMO.

Whether or not by accident, the "four pattern bingo" is a masterstroke of colors and patterns complementing each other perfectly. The thing that I admire about your posts are your coats. Always, the length is spot-on. All too often, on the street and sometimes on this forum, I see some really great looking coats/jackets, but they are too short. Almost, ridiculous. Also, your coats have a nice, but not too snug, silhouette that creates a stylish, sleek look. Consistently, you provide a textbook on good taste and good tailoring.
