@DiplomaticTies those Carmina's seem to have seen a good deal of miles, based upon the view of the bottoms, but looks impeccable on top. a bit orange heavy for my taste, but a great look!

The orange socks are a little cutesy for my tastes, but I think the rest of the outfit is an awesome wink to anyone who likes clothes and is paying attention.

Subtlety pairing three stripes together along with shades of orange; I would have never thought to dress down such serious suit in that way. Very cool look.

^Your pant hems have been pretty short lately.  I'd recommend a little more length or a narrower leg opening.  I don't mind them short if they have a good taper personally.  I like the jacket a lot.  It's a good length and the open quarters make you look slimmer IMO.

Koala-T, your pants are too short. I've noticed this on a few of them. With a leg opening that size, they definitely need to make solid contact with your shoes.

Interesting. Thanks!

He's right about the pants, but wrong about the open fronts. Search your feelings, Koala-T...

I'd still like to see K-T in a suit. That'll be the most slimming for him.

Honest to god, I've got like one suit that probably fits half way decent. I so seldom have the need to wear them, or the urge, that I haven't put the energy into building up my selections. I got a local Austin tailor to work up a custom MTM job for me starting around last Christmas, and the whole experience was just a nightmare, and the product was roundly lambasted in this very forum at the beginning of the summer. I'm thinking of trying out Kent Wang at the beginning of next year, just to get a staple navy suit in my closet, and see where things go from there.

This jacket has more closed quarters than most of my other jackets. I could let out the hips a touch more perhaps, but I do like this jacket. What do you think of the length?

What was wrong with this tailor? 

 

I've had MTM brands that are less than impressive (to put it mildly lol) on the first go round, and saw substantial improvements in followup attempts.
