Thanks for the comments. On the whole, I'm extremely pleased with the fit. When I put it on, it slides on with what would be a satisfying "thunk.". The shoulders are great, the length is great, sleeves are just right. The back is the only serious fit problem (the collar's either a little too low too, or it's part of the back issue), and it's fixable. The details are also very nice. I particularly like an aspect of the button fly. There's no hook, it's all buttons, but the main button on the waist attaches not directly to the, er, flap, but rather to a buttonhole that's attached to the underside of the flap. It's sort of hard to describe, but the effect is that there's no visible button in the center, and it lays very nicely and is easy to button. There are some minor issues--the suspender buttons are too wide; instead of being centered above the pleats, they're more to the side of the trousers, thus not helping the line of the trousers and being inconvenient. The lapel buttonhole is a milimeter or so too small. And so forth. But my biggest problem is with the lapels. They're considerably more narrow than I'd prefer; I like them roughly half the side of the chest, and clipping the breast pocket. Manton, you think it works well here? I felt that it made the suit look too "stylish" and modern. It's not unwearable, and I might even like it in, say, a very lightweight, high-twist black fabric, but here I was looking for a more classic cut. Renault78law--No, there's a left pocket flap. I just forgot to untuck it after storing newspaper there whilst walking the dog this morning
Anyway, I'll be meeting Joe again next week for some adjustments. I'm still waiting for a suit from Chan but I'm pleased with this experience and would do it again.
