Yeah good call. With the full suit I could choose burgundy but if worn with cream strides you're right chilli or snuff would be better. I have snuff suede punch caps. Can't wait to get it back now.

Picture is out of focus, sleeves are wonky, and it was the end of an entire day being in this suit. Oh well; here it is anyway, for posterity.

Looks good. More importantly, how does it feel?

While not tight, it does feel very close to the back. I still have plenty of mobility. I was very aware of it at first, but by the end of the day I had forgotten about it. Next time I'll ask for slight shoulder extension and a touch more room in the upper back.
The more I wear it, the more I prefer the drape of Arrigo's jackets. I asked Palmisciano if he knew about drape (drappeggio, piega, etc) and he replied that if I'd like more room in the chest he'd be happy to do so. Not sure if he had never heard of it, or if he simply equates drape with roominess.

Oh, that reminds me, Arrigo and his wife paid particular attention to the armholes which were cut pretty high.

Looks great, Peter.

Forgot to robo-pose, but here's a shot of the jacket from Palmisciano that had zero fittings, based solely on measurements and fittings from the brown fresco jacket.

Looks great. Though the upper chest gives the impression that it could be snug if you inhaled too deeply. Shoulders seem a bit less 'relaxed'?

Chest has far less drape than Arrigo's. It's not tight, but it is very lean. I prefer somewhere in between the two.
