You're almost the same height/weight as me (5'11, 155), how on earth can you pull off Thin Finns, and April 77s? Maybe your weight is more in the upper body since I'm closer to a 36/37R.

Jovan, yes you can mix/match jacket-trouser. and yes the size 40 will fit more relaxed (aka normal) than a 38, if that's your regular size.
Sounds great. My main concern is actually, "Will it still look good?" The chest and stomach match up on a 38 jacket I own which fits me just the way I want it so... I hope so! I really do want to take advantage of your generous offer. So as far as sleeves go, what do you want us to measure them from? Actual body or a well-fitting jacket? There's been some confusion over this between me and a certain online tailor, with allowances for shoulder padding, etc. Speaking of which, what's the construction like? Firm or soft? Thanks again.

I'll do a critique of a website as a designer. The design is good for a DIY project however I think as the business gets rolling it may be good to bring it to the next level. First I'd shy away from a tables based layout and opt instead for a CSS layout, it's more flexible and gives you more control for future changes. I think too many elements get lost in the background or cause unecessary color vibration including text and the dancing man. I think the little suit dancing guy looks a bit too clip-artish, I think it needs more than just being stuck on the page. The nav is ok but very plain and looks a bit sloppy. The text that is blue is hard to read and the white text looks choppy. I think the grid system, which is seems what you were going for, needs to be cleaned up, the spaces refined, gaps distributed evenly to make it more clean. I kinda see the retro look you are going for, and in some places it works. The use of arrows in some places is good and in others not. Perhaps using some of these elements on a more professional level would complete the look you are trying to achieve. Good Luck

Beautiful, beautiful stuff. I'll definitely be saving up for a one button.

Thats great news about the shirts, I was contemplating jantzen but now I can deal with someone local.

I think you missed the second part of my question though, the part about me being off your RTW scale.

Congrats Jason.

Where are these being made?

Totally boss, man. Nice job. Great cafe setting shots. The one-button looks great, too.

DAMN! You're a lifesaver. I've been looking for those silhouettes for a long time now. Dior is great but don't want to wipe out my bank acct. Finally, a company who understands proportions for me. I've been buying Italian suits ( RTW ) and spend $$ on alterations to get the look you guys have. I've bookmarked your site. Thanks!!

GS, are you going to offer suit in 34S as well? I really dig the silhoutte of the suits you're offering now but your smallest size is still too big for me. If that's not possible, how much would it cost for you to alter a 36S into a 34S? You're definitely my number 1 inspiration from now on

to answer some questions real quick...

Jovan...I'd call the construction firm, in that there's definite structure in the shoulders and body. The mod 'continental' cut that these are based on were originally more like a Roman cut/build.

Nino...sorry must have missed that bit. can you PM me with your size? When I was thinking about it, I'm not going to offer the one button cut in anything larger than a 44, as that would visually go against the overall silhouette of what I had in mind. The three button is more forgiving towards larger sizes however, and that I can entertain in 44+

M@t....I posted in the other TaT thread about manufacturing around page 4(?)

Vision...thanks for the input on the actual website layout

and cheers for the good words!

yes, definitely, it's always been in my mind to offer a 34...i just wanted to see what the demand would be. but it's easily graded to a size34 no problem. If you're interested PM me, and I'll work out what the finished dimensions would be for jacket/trousers

+1 for the size 34

I would *prefer if you measured off an existing jacket that fits you. That will be more accurate since it takes into account the shoulder padding. Measuring on the actual body is tricky because 10 different people measuring you might pick slightly different points at the deltoid to measure from, and even tho it might only be a difference of .24"-.5", that can make a world of difference in the finished product since I'm prone to losing sleep over a sleeve being .25" too long

Jason, so how many weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds till I get mine?

hopefully you'll have it in your hands during the week of Jan 22-26

...and I met up with a friend at the Rose Bowl swapmeet this morning who is going to introduce me to his own knitwear maker, who's supposedly awesome, is supposedly inexpensive, and is LA local. *fingers crossed that this guy works out*
