Vox had something clever to say? What a surprise.
Here's my current project. Basted fitting last two days ago. Cloth is Draper WSL no. 2421, 7 1/2 oz - very light and airy. This suit will be quarter-lined and is intended for Sydney summers. (It was around 40 degrees C in Sydney today.)
^ Jacket will be lengthened; left sleeve shortened slightly. Wrinkles underneath shoulders at back will need fixing. Collar at back will be raised by about 1cm. Drape over chest is good with no lapel bowing (my bête noir).
Hip pockets will be patch.
Pants are pooling behind knees - this will be fixed. They will be widened a little. The rise will be higher (you can't see the rise in these pix but it's too low).
Sleeve pitch is off and will be fixed. You can see the way the pents are sagging at the back in these shots. Will be addressed. I might have them shortened about 1cm too.
Here are some ideas for the buttons:
My preference is for the lower of the two dark green buttons in the pic immediately below. Blends well with the suit.
Or maybe this -
I'm leaving the identity of the tailor a secret for now, as they are new to SF and I want them to just get on with the job without undue pressure. I'd appreciate if those who might hazard a guess could refrain from doing so now, although I'll answer PMs.
Forward fitting next week. Comments welcome.
