I use oversized spread collars exclusively, so I see no issue. Not a fan of the pants with the rest of the outfit. Imagine them as mocha brown. Would go brilliantly with the tie and square.

Ah phew! I wasn't sure. I am picking up some trousers from the tailors today that will give me many more options in future.

Question: what can I wear solid linen shirts with? Are they suitable for wearing with a blazer and tie? Suits?

Sadly my Korean is only basic so I had to rely on my wife and mother-in-law to translate at times. That being said, they are really nice and it was a great experience. The dad especially was really welcoming - asking how I heard about them (here) and wanting to take a picture with me, while making sure to add a pocket square before the picture.

Needless to say I'm looking forward to my next commission. Thanks for bringing them to my attention @Claghorn

Long time lurker, but this is actually my jacket, part of a suit, that I commissioned over the holidays from BnT in Seoul. Just came in last week - really happy with it. It will need a few tweaks for the next commission, but it was a great experience overall. Highly recommended.

Great choice. This is one of my favourites I have seen so far and I'm contemplating of having this one made. When you say 'tweaks', what would those be?

Yes. In summer at least.

Attempting to figure out what types of fits to focus on going forward for my suit jackets and sport coats.  Amazing how taking a picture of front and back can alter my own perspective from just looking in the mirror.  

 

I chose pieces I perceive as pretty good fits.  Some are a bit tight around the waist as I am a good 6 or 7 pounds heavier than when they were originally purchased or altered.  Any thoughts on best cuts and fits would be appreciated.  

 

I marked which are suits and which are SCs because didn't feel like changing my pants for each picture.  I also had to use color enhance on the darker stuff, so color may look off.

In this case I was only in Seoul for two weeks so could only have the initial appointment and the first fitting - three are recommended for first time customers. I knew it was a bit risky, but I only have the chance to visit once a year so I went ahead anyway.

With that being said, the pants are a bit slimmer in the thigh and calf than I would like. Otherwise it came out very well. An additional fitting would have caught theses issues. I wouldn't hesitate to try then again even in a short visit.

Euro, the Formosa is by far the most flattering and best fit. I've seen the full length too and it looks incredible on you. It would be an easy choice for me going forward.

3 and 9 are the most flattering, though I don't particularly like the quarters of 9

Yup, 3 is the Formosa.

#3 is the best. And I usually dislike the Formosa cuts on most (and the NMWA hypetrain).

Squash that noise

The Formosa clearly has an excellent fit and should be your go-to reference, but I think the Eidos Lorenzo cut (#2) flatters you as well.  Might make a nice change-of-pace if you're building a wardrobe primarily based on Formosa's cut.

I thought I was the only one here who is not a real fan of the Formosa cut (other than on people who are built like Greek Gods, such as Murl: tall, slim and with very broad shoulders, there it looks perfect).

To me, the combination of narrow shoulders and low buttoning point, emphasises the hips too much, making them look broader than they actually are. Certainly not flattering. You can see it on Europreps pics too. In addition to that, the back looks a bit messy in that pic.

Greek God? I gotta tell me wife that one! Just call me Zeus for now on, Elio.
