I can be done detouring and get this thread back on track.
Aportnoy: The photo quality is not great, but that is totally independent of the quality of the 'fit. In terms of 'fit, I think only Butler's pieces from Steven Hitchcock rival this, however overall - biases be damned - I still have to give it to Despos. Aportnoy's arm may be cocked, but even so you can see just how friggin' clean that jacket and those trousers are. The way I describe Chris' lines is by saying that they look animated. This is a great example of how the silhouettes he cuts look like they've been done with a razor. The real way you can tell that from the picture is to look at sleeve and trouser on the left side of the image. Especially the trouser.
Also, even with the picture quality, you can still see the cleanliness and sleekness of that ungodly shoulder line.
gdl203: Greg's look here is five colors done in a WTF that most of us will never manage. The wrinkles in the jacket play with the look of the cotton pants, and yet the lines are there again, especially when you look at the curve of the lapel as it moves down into the fronts. There are also a bunch of little details like the play between the checks, the shirt, and the tie.
Terrorsquad: I have no idea whether or not this is a bespoken suit, but my guess is yes for several reasons. The silhouette against the body is first. It's very well matched. Speaking of matching, the way the check is situated is the second reason for thinking it custom. While the horizontal across the sleeve to the body is one thing, the vertical between the skirt and trousers is another. The real kicker to me though is the pattern matching of the check across the plunge. It's well cut, well fitted, well matched, well put together - in that the ensemble is rather classic though the overcheck is a nice twist - and beats out a home run on fundamentals. Parker noted above that Henry Carter is also very good at this, however I found the details on this to be slightly more appealing.
MaoMao - I believe this got thrown in from another thread because I think this fit is actually pre-2010. However, it's hard to argue with Mao. This look pretty immediately went into my folder headed "things to figure out how and why they work." He makes this look effortless, and yet to try and emulate it would be folly.
Butler - Were I doing this on individual photos rather than posters, this list would probably be Aportnoy, MaoMao, Butler's Blue DB, His green lovat tweed, and the Uniform with the ventless navy jacket. However, it's well established that Butler can consistently throw 9s and 10s. So can portnoy. So can MaoMao. So can gdl, but if I had to cut one of the three it would be his because of the casual disheveled-ness of it. But I only went with one, and I went with this one because, as I said above, it's not in the thread. 6x1 is almost never seen on this board, neither is blue. Neither is a large contrast collar candy stripe shirt. Yet it is impeccable. The cut is obvious - especially the line of the lapel approaching the button. That is beautifully done. It has shape and volume. It really is a beautiful thing to behold. It's obvious that Butler and Mr. Hitchcock have an excellent relationship.
