Read his posts again carefully, and you'll see he is making quite a lot of sense actually....

The sleeves have not been set.

So I was looking for great brown suits for inspiration for a project of my own. This is very nice, I love everything about it. May I ask what weave the fabric is?

I am currently considering having mine made in a dark brown (to suit my complexion) birdseye fabric. Hopefully it will work as a separate jacket as well from time to time when I want more variety in my spring wardrobe.

Thanks - that's helpful. I was a bit tired last night, so went back and re-read and it makes more sense now, but even close reading won't help with some of sprout2's language:

Fit is an interesting subject. Because it involves so many groups of thought. It can be, and sometimes needs to be, divided up into two or more groups. These groups are certainly intermingled, which adds to the confusion. Inlays are used to adjust any of these fits. Armholes need to be in there correct place to be comfortable and functional. Change the style and adjustments need to to be made, or it doesn't fit. Personality also plays a role of better fit. That is three. How many more reasons are there that deals with the armhole fit?

As far as tailors touching sometimes they can feel if the garment isn't fitting. Where as, customers new to a higher standard of clothing wouldn't know, and think this is strange with crazy thouhts rushing through their mind. By touching a tailor can tell how tight or loose the cloth is, and which direction the stress on the cloth is coming from. So, these are a few legitimate reasons. How many more reasons are there? And, not saying that some tailors touch for other reasons, because, well, there's always some of them.

My first shirt from Tailors Keep was ready today. I opted for a classic white oxford cloth button down, unfused 4" collar. Sweet roll. Looks great buttoned and even more so unbuttoned. The fabric is still a little stiff and should soften after a couple of washes, but I'm pretty happy with it. After it settles I'll see how it hangs across the upper pecs and see if it needs to be lifted to make it cleaner. Can't believe I've waited this long to get a basic shirt, but I was surprised how rare it is to find one OTR that doesn't look hokey.

The trousers were ready for the second fitting, and I have to say I was amazed that lowering the back rise made all the difference in the world - the back of the pants fell straight down. It was a beautiful thing to see. Just another tweak to clean up the front, add the pockets, zipper, and buttoned cuffs, and they'll be done. Probably the first week of January. Can't wait.

How did the butt pleats work out?

Was disappointed to see they had not been included. Oh well. I guess you can't get everything right on the first commission.
