Of course, as you see. Convenience above all else.

Ha, it has treated me well, for sure. Owned it for probably 3 years now? There are some more interesting watches out there, but it is difficult to dislike this one.

You previously used Despos, didn't you tits? I remember liking your stuff that you got from him... a lot.

I think next time I may ask for a bit more roping (I have a sport coat in the hopper). I really like the shoulder line. It is distinctive once you develop an eye for it.

I have. I've the suit and four shirts. They are all wonderful.

The whole thing is really telling once you know what to look for. body is shaped so that the waist has shape without having been suppressed. The sleeve pitch is impecible - how many times did Chris make you try it on until he was satisfied with it. The fronts also have an amazing line to them. The whole thing really illustrates why I say Chris' work looks like it has been drawn on. Also, the pants? Am I right?

Dude that cut/fitting was perfect. I also forget that you look pretty good in almost all your jackets

Anyway, I would love advice on a pocket square to go with this and any advice on what colors to pair with this suit (probably anything but, I would love some inspiration.
Suit- R. Caruso Sartorio Parma
Shirt-BB
Tie-BB
Shoes-AE Bostons

Lovely suit Citan, but could perhaps do with the sleeves being shortened a touch. Other than that I like the fit.

In terms of the square I'm not sure. I feel like white would work but that's because it works with everything. Perhaps something in the navy family?

The shape is something that is particularly noticeable - and is highlighted when you look at the back of the jacket. The waist is suppressed all the way around the jacket, and there is not a single part that feels tight. Not sure how to describe it, but the jacket is fully shaped even when you unbutton it. The buttoning point does not create any shape, the jacket is already shaped like that. You are right, the whole thing feels like it is drawn on. I have no experience with other bespoke, but cannot recommend Chris enough.

Amazingly, Chris had the sleeve pitch down gosh - by the second fitting? When he put the jacket on me at the first fitting, we were both amazed with how well he had gauged the shoulders and the sleeve pitch and the back. I think that we wavered most with how much shape he was to give the jacket - and the wavering was largely due to my uncertainty. This is the only jacket I own where I would not change a thing.

The pants are superb. But sometimes the jacket overshadows them. I can get a pretty excellent pair of pants off the rack, but I have never had another jacket come close to it. But the line of the pants is amazing, they have a ton of shape. And they are the only pants I own that are shaped slim without actually feeling slim, if that makes sense. His cuffs are also unreal.

Thanks dude, I appreciate it. I am starting to feel very content with most all of my wardrobe at this point, which is a good feeling. Now, to win the lottery.

Chris' big thing is in watching how you move and creating a dynamic garment that moves with, not against, you. I've come to think that jacket and pants have the curves they do, and the in built shape, so that they are mechanically situated to flow with your movements. The same goes for how he has shirts made. When I got the first one I was worried that the sleeves would be short and mentioned this. He did his thing where he said, "Well, try it, and when you come back we'll see how it goes." After wearing the shirt a few times I sent him an email basically noting I'd observed that the sleeve also moved relative to the jacket to remain properly situated. It was friggin' amazing.

You're very lucky about the sleeves. At the time, I was playing a lot of racquet ball and so the shape of my shoulders kept changing. It didn't help that my shoulders are already weird because of joint laxity.

This delightful seven fold arrived today - lovely. 

 

 

Furthermore I decided today was a good day to go and try some shirts on. After some (quite correct) criticism that the points of my Tyrwhitt shirts were much too short, I decided to give TM Lewin a try again after some bad experiences in the past. I was very pleasantly surprised, and picked up this pink twill shirt in their regular fit. I think the collar looks much better (not so sure about the jacket/shirt combo - was just trying the shirt on).

Is the jacket black and white or brown and beige?

It's black and white (but an ever so slightly off-white).

Is it just a jacket or a suit?

Full suit. I wear the jacket and trousers separately quite a lot though.
