Dear all,

Here are some pictures of finished suits for reference:

Very nice, Eric, but I would expect better pattern matching on the shoulders with those pin stripe examples.

Surely this has been covered boith here and on Thomas Mahon's site (English Cut) - such precise matching at the shoulder is not possible given the average human body.

Didn't know one-button suits were that popular.

They look great! Is the plaid jacket intended to have softer shoulders?

If it's RTW, fair enough, but I demand it in bespoke (unless it's impossible, as some intricate patterns are. Pin stripes are definitely achievable) and get it.

Just out of curiosity: you have never felt the back of your shoulders to be slightly narrow? What GBR was aiming at, is that the fabric at the back shoulder is wider than the fabric at the front, and the difference is worked out by stretching and ironing the fabric. Hence, pattern matching is impossible. Function over form and all that. I personally find both coats to be very elegant.

Yes, we made the suit based on our client's requirement.

It just happened that these two jackets are one-button which specified by our clients. I'll post more pictures of the 2-button suits later in the future.

It depends on the pattern and the individual's shape, naturally, but pattern matching pin stripes is far from impossible. Yes, the coats do look good otherwise, I quite agree, and everything else I've seen from Gordon Yao looks excellent, but I personally dislike ill-matching patterns on the shoulder area unless it is totally unavoidable. Just a personal preference of mine.

As mentioned by some of the forum members, in general, a precise matching at the shoulder is not possible given the average human body and our client's own measurement. There is a very rare occasion that some fabrics and the measurement of the client happened to be able to achieve more precise result and we'll give our best to match that for our client.

I've seen it done many times, with pin stripes that is.

Thanks for the great photos otherwise, Eric. Always a pleasure to see your company's work.

The "barchetta" breast pocket look great, is it a request by the customer?

Believe on english cut, Tom Mahon specifically says that a lot of suits that do have matching strips do not fit the wearer very well.
