Jacket looks good on Marzotto IMHO. Personally I don't like square shoulders. Maybe it's just because mine are sloped. But anyway I don't feel like it's a defect that needs to be corrected. The pinstripe jacket I don't like that much.

Proportions seem right, correct length, lapel width, buttoning point, skirt, the right taper, waist suppression and soft shoulders with a little structure.

But most importantly, that's the silhouette I am after in a suit.

Sloped shoulders are an anatomical feature, not a feature of a jacket

But they can be a reason to go with one style of jacket shoulder over another.

 

If I do go back to my MTM tailor, I'll be asking for lower patch pockets. Will probably keep the button stance the same.

On a different note, J Press is having an excellent sale for ties. I think JRD may have mentioned them in terms of stripes, but they also have an excellent selection of neats available at 40% off, putting them at <$45

Is there any way someone can provide pictures of squared shoulders that are aesthetically appealing and pictures of ones that aren't. I have sloped shoulders and my structured garments don't have squared shoulders. They look fairly nice.

I like the look of the shoulders on the the light blue one.  I am no expert but I think the MTM fits way to good to be spending that much more for bespoke.

Clags... I love how the B&T look, if your MTM tailor could do something like that, I would not see a problem to going back to MTM.

anyway, thoughts on this?


perfectly reasonable. if the BnT price is a stretch for you, is see no reason to keep most of your purchases to MTM and only go BnT on occasion. if the price is not a stretch, then the fact that BnT is more expensive would not for me be reason to back away, assuming you like their work better.

It may be that I have lower standards than some here, but I don't see the BnT as 3x better than your MTM. It's just different. Also, the suits are in different fabrics, right? I think the material differences may be contributing to the differences called out.

Unbel is right about the pockets.

All of this.

Certainly would not be worth the 3x price difference to me either.
