To clarify on the NY trips, it will be Michael taking the lead on this and he'll mirror G&G's travel schedule. It's great for C&M to make its US return following a significant hiatus.

Can you do some without the coat please to seat the fit of the trousers and waistcoat?

It is indeed. Though, to be frank, I have been disappointed by their bizarre pricing strategy and scheduling for the trip - American customers will pay a (decent) premium to the UK price, with no discount on CMT. That coupled with the fact that they intend to visit only twice a year makes me believe that their re-entry to the U.S. market may be unsuccessful and short-lived. I hope I'm wrong.

Look forward to seeing your pics!

Do you know how much they were asking for a suit?

IIRC, 3,500 GBP for a two-piece CMT.

Thanks. I have a length of fabric that I think will make up ideally with their style but I don't know when I'll have it made up. How much do they charge in London?

Your right shoulder is set lower that why is wrinkle at armpit ( armhole ) both front and back of coat, your erect proportion that why also wrinkle at waist line of back of the coat but over all They did the fine job.

I am 44 years as Master Bespoke Tailor graduated from Acadamy coupe de Paris 1972 now work with Nordstrom but soon will be opening Bespoke Tailor at San Francisco.

No offense the suit looking good and classic and quality of craftsman ship but too formal, that is Savile Row.

My system classic craftsman. But the way I drawing and cutting pattern more modern like James Bond more short coat and short rise and trouser more trim at the legs.

Tailor is an art and each tailor have different vision in fashion trend.

Very possible.

I had the pleasure of meeting these gentlemen at their storefront last month in London while visiting Matthew of Steed (I think Steed rents space out of C&M). Fantastic pieces, I was blown away by a particular double breasted they had out - the lapels are truly unique and distinctive.

The audience here won't really appreciate the modern suits you are making
