Just ordered a single breasted, two-button, notch lapel suit in charcoal #9. Pretty conservative throughout, but with tapered trousers, two inch cuffs, slight hacking pockets, high armholes, and slim arms. I'll post pictures after it's pressed and tailored.

the new pic of the guy in the light grey prince of wales looks pretty epic (looks like my next suit will be that ). the tapering of the trousers look pretty insane. would like to see a normal standing shot to get a better view of the fit.

Any word on when the new twills hit? I'm desiring a sport coat with a gray base.

^^ maybe sometime by next week I should have some new tweeds , but no new twills for time being

I meant tweeds. If mind would talk to fingers I'd be okay. Looking forward to a new order!

Hey Jason, would you consider making a cumberbund out of the facing fabric used in the tux? I'm thinking flat without pleats might go best with the TaT aesthetic...

Received TAT suit pretty quickly. In 3 weeks!!! The fit is pretty good, jacket is a little tight. Sent the suit to be pressed, but am a bit worried since they only charged me $5.95 to do it by hand. I hope they followed my instructions since the suit has MOP buttons. Will post pix once the suit is pressed.

I ended up (carefully!) pressing the suit myself, because I was concerned the cleaners in my small town would screw something up. Also, it was cheaper that way.

Well the morons used that stupid body thing to press it and the actual pant press. I told NOT to do that and thats what they consider by hand. Luckily the suit looks fine and i hope it didnt screw the seams or stretch it, cant do much about it anymore.

Suit is $530

Jacket $375

Trouser $160

those tweeds are really nice tho and I think well worth the slight markup

I had dropped this off at the tailor probably 5 or 6 weeks ago before I went to Asia for a few weeks, and only got around to picking it up today The amount of skirt flair seems to be decreasing with every subsequent order (the width of the back panel at the hem keeps narrowing despite not requesting any measurement changes; need to find out why?), and it throws off the visual proportion. As as a band-aid solution, I get the waist taken in and try to have the skirt eased out to restore the proportion, otherwise it will look like a sack jacket with no waist suppression. Though there is not enough material to let out the skirt to the original specs, and the resulting shape is not as graceful as the previously ordered jackets that I'm referencing, it becomes especially obvious when in motion. Lighting in this place really sucks; it's very hard to get a decent photo. 1 button house cut Navy #C worsted 2.25" lapel Light brown horn buttons For illustration purposes: a comparison of the first 3 generations and this latest one.
