Second, I don't see how you can really gauge the look of someone's trouser rise without a full length shot to see what it does for their body type. It's said that high rise trousers make you look slimmer and your legs longer. Well, I'm 6'3" with long, long legs and I'm also slim...so why would I want trousers that accentuate that even more? For similar reasons, I would never commission a jacket from Edward Sexton. Not that I dislike his work (I'm a fan), but I have really broad shoulders and his shoulder style/structure would look like a costume on me. I don't really see how this particular jacket would prompt the need for a higher rise anyways...

Along this line of thinking, how are you liking your Steed SC? It may well have been the angle/picture (admittedly, judging off one robo pose pic is a fool's errand), but the shoulders looked a good deal fuller/beefier than some of your other SCs/suits a la Formosa, not to the point where it looked foolish by any means, but just making your shoulders look a bit broader than they might already be...

 

Any thoughts on the shoulder/structure differences between the two makers?

I like it a lot, but the two are really night and day. It's much more padded than Formosa's natural (spalla cadente morbida) shoulder, but is as Steed describes...soft tailoring. They (shoulders) feel great and after some wear have settled in really nice. The jacket is still a work in progress...only one fitting so they will be making adjustments next time I see them. I'm happy with it though and if the shoulder makes mine appear broader, it isn't enough to bother me.

I'm not enamored with that shade of suede with that shade of grey.

Oh, most definitely. To my eye, it made you look a touch more "built," but certainly not bulky. Will be curious to see how the jacket's fit "evolves" with any adjustments once it finally settles:slayer:

On the original picture it seemed as if there would be shirt showing between trousers and buttoning point with this jacket, that's why I said it. If you are happy with your trousers, that's all that really counts.

Today I am playing "suit roulette" - taking a suit out of the archives, where it has sat unworn for several months, and seeing whether or not it fits. I believe that today was moderately successful in that regard. A change in the suit rotation, in any case.

Suit - BB
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Charvet
PS - Robert Talbott
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's, Boston
