Vox's is not super drapey, I think. Seems cleaner in general.

There seems to be some things I notice across the pics, but the views of someone with far more expertise would be well received.

Like Iso said, Vox's is not very drapey at all. More specifically, Vox's are cut much closer to the chest. Look in and around the chest area. In addition, Vox's does not have as nipped of a waist, and the "quarters" of his jacket sweep instead of fall straight at a diagonal. The shoulders on Vox's have minimal padding as well, although that may be common to all of Steed's jackets.

  recently did combined with some IG photos from Gusvs9 reminded me of the beauty of the Liverano sillouette and sparked my desire to get a jacket done.  So my question is - are there options for me in NYC other than waiting for BnT's MTM program to get up and running? Eidos is no longer doing MTM, so that is out.  $7,200 and a year wait from Liverano himself is out.

For some reason, I thought BnT was doing a full bespoke in NYC, similar to what Robin Pettersson does. Is that incorrect?

BnT is trying to start up a MTM program, not full bespoke, see the BnT thread, about 2 pages from the end for details on their envisioned process for NYC. Has had a few delays getting launched

In need of some good natured advice on this suit I had made. I asked for spalla camicia and got this. Is this fixable? If so, how much would it cost? It's fairly noticeable when worn, and I can take a picture later to illustrate that if needed.

To be fair, it's supposed to be noticeable. That definitely isn't the worst example I've ever seen. Do you have a pic of it on?

I don't have one on hand. I will take one when I get home and post it here. Thanks for the feed back, and I don't mind if it's noticeable but I also don't want it quite this prevalent. It will also settle some with wear too which will be good.

I'm curious to see what it looks like. I think it'll be okay...you're just not used to it.

Someone talk me out of buying a tan linen suit

Fair enough.

Not me. I've got a three piece white linen suit, and my only problem is figuring out how next to wear it. That may be your only saving grace, not knowing when and where to wear it.

I appreciate your feedback, Crusty (although my bank account doesn't smile.gif )

I would be a nervous wreck wearing a white linen suit - how do you keep it clean?!

It's office wear for some folk :) (can't tell from the photo what the fabric is, but we've all certainly seen Wolfe in white linen three-pieces):

 

 

Cheers,

No. Tan linen suits are awesome. It would not be good natured advice to tell you to not get one.
