Sartoria Gianni Volpe - Naples - Page 5

It is a very similar cut to mine but for the 3B vs 2b.

Without seeing the back it looks to me that the lenght is about right or it could be 1-2cm longer max.

I don't mind the length--doesn't look short to me at all. However, I find something unpleasing about the way the chest is shaped. Viewed front-on, it appears that your arms are caving in on you. Also, I think the sleeve shape can be improved. I cannot tell if your posture or the angle of the photo is to blame, but the curvature is not very smooth. Certainly, it can be more tapered toward the wrist.

Thanks for the comments.
I think that the front view is not very pleasing due to the auto-timer. I'm not really used to it and can not always stand correctly in front of the camera.
As for the sleeve shape, I actually don't think that it could be tapered down anymore. If I put shirt with double cuffs, it will almost hit the jacket's sleeve.

Here is another suit that was made for me in May and which I am wearing today.

The shirt collar and jacket collar are too high. With that, the gorge that seems slightly high, and the lack of shoulder padding, there is a big traps/slope-shoulder effect. Also, yes, for the cut of the suit, the jacket looks too short and juts out as to maximize the rear. Finally, even if the knees are locked in the pictures, the pants look off; they should hang straighter.

I like the fabric.

You must have the biggest sack of nuts in Russia.

BTW - please button the sleeves. Unless your a surgeon...

I did not see the sleeve buttons undone before taking pics. It was like that after I picked it up from the tailor and did not notice it.

You should be ashamed.

Seriously though - how big is your nut sack? I've never seen a reverse moose knuckle like the one your showing off in the first pic.

I was. Really...
I should have not pulled the pants up like that, which causes such effect. Will wear this suit again next week and try to make better pictures.

Another suit by Gianni Volpe. Cloth is J.J. Minnis 0304 flannel. Full-length picture is in motion and a bit blurry.
