With Clags, there's a difference?

It's still quite warm in NYC, though alleged to be low humidity, but I've skipped wearing a tie in any case.

Jacket - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt & trousers - BB
PS - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Tyrwhitt

Great combination for an after-work Gin & Tonic on a rooftop bar!

In April I took a trip to Japan, and while in Osaka I did an MTM BlazerSuitTM in navy fresco with a shop called Kubo Classic Style. I'll probably write more about the experience and my trip at some point.

I like the suit a lot, but I wonder whether your figure would benefit from a somewhat built-up shoulder, like that:

Glad to see an O'Connell's blazer in this thread. I have had to move away from their SC's and Trousers for fit reasons, but there really isn't a nicer bunch of guy's. If you ever get a chance to visit the store its a one of a kind menswear experience for sure.

Yep, I'm with you. As soft shoulders go, these lay the cleanest of any jacket I own, but at some point I definitely intend to try a maker with a house style that's more built up. Might join some of the San Francisco contingent for a go at Steed when they come back in October. Thanks for the feedback and the image!

Martin Greenfield gets no love on SF, but they do great work if you like a classic american style.  For those that live in the NYC area, once or twice a year they do a deal on gilt where it is ~$1400 for a "MTM" suit in a solid range of fabrics (you can upgrade if you want something with a high #).  I use MTM in quotes because they call it that, but there was a basted fitting, maybe not quite a full bespoke, but more than a typical MTM process.

Stylish summer ensemble! Minor quibble with the red buttonhole basting stitch, though. Might as well leave the Isaia coral lapel pin in. Contrivance?

Damnit, I forgot to take that out lol8[1].gif. The jacket is brand new and I was just excited to wear it.

no idea why. I absolutely love all my MG stuff. this jacket im particular is fantastic... softer shoulder than any neopolitan jacket i own. quarter lined, and the fabric is by far my favorite that ive owned.

I find Martin Greenfield a little perplexing. I have no experience with their suits. (I do have a BB Golden Fleece MTM that may or may not be from them). On another forum here I was discussing the best US suit makers and talked about Oxxford, the little-discussed Adrian Jules and, gasp! Hickey Freeman (I like them a lot). Anyway, got pounced on by some Greenfield fetishists. My tailor used to work with them but gave up as they apparently had some quality issues.

 

Anyway, is there a reason MG gets no SF love? Dirnelli punked-out US suits in general: http://dirnelli.tumblr.com/search/oxxford

It actually looks kind of cool in a contrived way. :D
