@DonRaphael I remember that you have the EG Cappelli Oulet F6 tie, I think I just bought the last one from Patrizio. Would like to have your opinion on how do you wear it. Is it too busy for a suit?

I can't remember what it looks like, care to share a link or describe?

Yeap that one! Been looking at it for quite awhile. I think Patrizio has unlisted that tie already.

It's a beautiful tie. The silk is rather stiff. You'll notice when you receive it. I have never used it with a suit, but I can see it working with a navy suit if everything else is toned down (navy suit, dark brown shoes, simple white shirt, white linen PS). I rarely step out of any comfort zone. I've personally used it with with SCs where either the top or bottom half is brown (brown wool SC or brown flannel trousers) paired with a light blue shirt. But then again, I'm not the most creative dresser on this board. I'm sure someone else would be able to give you more constructive feedback. Either way, you won't be disappointed with it.

Cool. Thanks for the opinion, will try to pair it when I receive the tie.

I joke about RTC's red blazer but I am getting a burgundy one too so idk how hypocritical I sound =P

 

Some final thoughts about these? I think it's turned out okay. Trousers for the first one is too tight but that can't be helped as I'd said.

 

 

 

 

The newer trousers feel much better, I think you can see from the back it's much nicer too, especially considering I wanted it quite slim. I've also got these pairs with single reverse pleats and I have to say it feels amazing I am completely sold on pleats.

 

 

 

 

I personally don't think the pulling at the button is a big deal, but I guess it is noticeable. What do you guys think? Should I ask to have it less waistd? I feel like the shape is good atm, and the crease is unavoidable with such a light weight fabric.

Does your right shoulder drop that much, or is it just the camera angle?
post #12114 of 37403

I think I literally just have a ridiculous drop.

@Isolation

Personally I think the jackets are too tight around the waist. You can see this by the pulling when buttoned but also how far apart the two sides of the jacket are when unbuttoned.

That said,I think these look much better than what you initially showed us.
post #12116 of 37403
I am liking the jackets but I'd dial back on the waist suppression. They should find a way to clean up the back especially the right side around your waist. Correct posture would help too, if you stand less erect.

Unfortunately, the pants are not doing anything for me. The last one looks better than the rest though.

Fwiw, this is probably something that you can and maybe should try to fix. It's generally caused by curvature of the spine, which if not structural can be corrected by physical therapy, which may save you some back pain later on. I am not a trainer or physical therapist so completely unqualified to tell you anything beyond that, but may be worth meeting with one if you don't already.

@Isolation

The pants seem too tight and they need to be let out a bit. Others have already commented on the jacket. Too much waist suppression and the shoulders are not balanced.

 

@Fellow Noodlers

The white socks were more of a joke. I will wear stockings next time.

post #12119 of 37403

Ah now that I think of it I did ask him to lessen the waist suppression on some of them, so perhaps the final product will be better. I will be getting most of the tomorrow then some more later. I might leave some with him to make some final changes. Anything else I should look at for tomorrow?

To be clear, the shoulder issue has to do with Isolation's dropped shoulder and not a tailoring mistake. I actually think they've dealt with it reasonably well. The other way to go is to try and make the shoulders more even by putting more padding in the lower one, but this strategy seems out of vogue now, as everyone is trying to take all the stuffing out of their jackets.
