how much padding is in the soft padded?

Do you have demo models with the different shoulders available for when I come by? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif you free on Sept 19th in 5 towns?

Otherwise, when you in LA next?

It is very lightly padded. None of the shoulders that I offer are very heavy but these are particularly light.

I think that I have models with all the different shoulders available here. We can definitely set up an appointment for 9/19.

Hand buttonholes look better in your photos
Machine chest and pockets look better

Can part be machine made and part handmade (buttonholes)?

Apart from the buttonholes and the stitches looking slightly bigger when done by hand, to my untrained eye, it is kinda hard to tell the difference!

Made by hand = better. End of story. foo.gif

Seriously, though, the handsewn chest pocket has a nice curve while the machine version is very straight.

Also notice how you can see the stitching on the sides and top of the machine sewn chest pocket while they are invisible on the hand sewn version.

I think Jeffery has mentioned the difference at some point in his blog with a much better explanation than I could give.

There is nothing wrong with the machine made suit and it is on par with nice Italian brands such as Zegna mainline or Canali but there will always be something special to me about wearing a garment that is (mostly) hand made.

Agree. Handmade is superior and you could feel the difference if you try it.
