It probably is but bespoke or not, it looks great!

That must have cost a pretty penny too.

The entire cost of the jacket was $10k... for cotton corduroy...

He commissioned 10 pieces and one was worse than the next. I mean really, really atrocious stuff. The "standout" was a cashmere/vicuna blend tan suit with three patch pockets, shawl collar, button at the mid-bicep so that he could roll-up and fasten his surgeon's cuffs above the elbow, cropped pants with satin pull-through cinch cuffs (so he could hike them up just short of his knee and keep them there) and, of course, more Hermès scarves for lining. Awe-inspiring stuff, really.

I'd pay to see him actually wearing that. Impressive, really.

Dude is a tremendous douche. Refers to himself as "old money" and says he's a "professional traveler" or that he "manages his family's interests" whenever the topic of employment/money comes up.

He has made some cool stuff in the past, but the majority of his stuff is obnoxious to the point of embarrassment. That said, he spends more money (arguably) with my tailor than any other client, so he's always welcomed to go further-and-further. Seeing him placing an order/selecting or providing materials is like watching a car accident: disturbingly intriguing.

I half hope he's a member here, though he might be more fedoralounge fodder...

I beg your pardon?

What inspired you to rope the shoulders up to the wearer's ears?
