Leonard Logsdail suit (with pictures) - Page 2

post #16 of 46
Exactly. Without knowledge of the commission, I hold you to a higher standard, too!

And, with respect, my business model for this product is my business. I wonder what business would last if definitive comments were made on one early product. Perhaps yours is. I know mine would not have. I'm still learning after 42 years.

No offense intended, neither to the unfortunate GITU nor to Len - but while I am no expert on fine tailoring, it seems quite a catastrophe.

However, as you are not privvy to the circumstances of the commission and delivery, or the actual body figurations, some comments offered are simply incorrect and misleading.

But of course you could set a few things straight if you wanted. Some obvious shortcoming of the suit were mentioned and seemed to be agreed about by many. So do you have some specific comments which could enhance the discussion?

What you're saying, essentially, is that the customer commissioned the suit like that. Is that it?

Now that's a cheap shot. I mean, this *is* an internet forum, people *are* behind their computers when posting. Instead of evading the factual questions raised I would welcome your participation in the discussion. Maybe there's something in it to learn for everyone here...

i'd tell the guy to his face that this suit looks like shit.

A bit surprised no-one has said the obvious - this customer should have gone bespoke; surely even the best MTM programmes cannot deal with his idiosyncracies?

Then again, Len probably should have informed his customer about this to being with.

I agree completely, particularly with the last point. We all are sitting behind computer screens, and Len's defense requires no more bravery, or supporting evidence, than the criticisms.

 

From the evidence presented here (the photos) I think two things are clear (i) the suit fits poorly, and (ii) the OP has a build that would be extremely difficult to accommodate in MTM. It seems that Len has hinted there are other issues related to the commission that lead to the result, but it would be interesting to know what they are, and in particular to hear a professional's thoughts on fitting difficult to fit individuals. I don't mean that as a challenge, but rather an invitation to what could be interesting and helpful information from a professional.

One odd thing so far is that Len Jr is the man behind the suit, but Len Sr is the only one posting.

This would be a great time for David Reeves to offer to make an MTM suit for the OP and see if he can do better. Len's already put himself out there for criticism (well, really, his client did), so now David could show how off his own chops.
Also, the OP should participate on Foo's apartment furnishing thread

I have seen a lot worse.
This is a larger man. though I have made a shirt for him, i have no clue as too who he is.

larger men present an entirely different set of problems then someone who is over muscled or want s super fitted suit.

My eye is drawn to the collar pulling away at the neck and the gaping at the chest.
It might just need to pull the collar up higher on his neck.
the deeper armhole on the suit allows the jacket to shift around.

what concerns me the most is the bear on the wall wearing the tie!!!

this is semi entertaining, not as funny as the old shirt thread though..

The bear certainly has better taste in ties than OP.

This thread makes me happy I'm not a tailor.

You bet I will take that challenge, but someone has to cover the cost of the suit. David Reeves MTM starts at $1500

Ask your marketing department. They should be able to front you the cash. So long as you avoid divots, you'll make it up on the back end.
