Just to whet your appetite a bit--no pictures yet-- but I just received my suit from Raja. It's a dark blue with light blue windowpane, two piece, with peaked lapels and a bit of waist suppression. I love it. A few qualms though: I asked for hacking pockets and a ticket pocket (I know, it's odd, but I thought it would be distinctive) and they gave me straight flap pockets and no ticket pocket. At least it's a classic look, and the pockets are double besomed. Instead of just putting my name on the inside of the jacket, they've tucked that into a pocket, and added a patch reading: VALENTINO GARAVANI Tessuti Uomo Yeah, right. Why can't these guys do a nice tag? Also, the jacket looks a bit long, and the shirt I ordered as well is long in the sleeves and big in the cuffs. Other than that, I think this was a great deal. I'll get the wife to take pictures today and hope to post them tomorrow or so. This MTM thing is really a problem, isn't it? It's too fun... Dangerous to the wallet, even at Raja's prices.
