Is the regular so short on you? Maybe it's actually better, with the sleeve length being better too.

I have not had the chance to try a R yet, but according to the measurements it would be both too short & too large at the chest and waist.
The SOHO is the same length as my Havanas, just to give you an idea.
I will try to make full length pics tomorrow.

Looks like an orphaned suit jacket.

It's the complete suit, unfortunately I think it won't fit me. frown.gif

Silhouette is lovely -- A+. Cloth is OK, but I would prefer it either more greyish or more bluish. Now it's neither fish nor fowl.

Im falling in love with db. As long as they are slim fitting and dont make it look like your wearing a box. I even have a double breasted waist coat from john varvatos. Its a way to stand out in a world of two button suits.

On the weekend I found one DB suit, but I wasn't convinced after all. What do you think?

Shoulders and sleeve length are spot on.

Yeap, I think that with a little waist suppression could work, but for the price I could get a bespoke DB.

Me too. I took the plunge on my first DB with NSM - a dark navy Minnis fresco - and I really like the way it came out. I like how they cover your shirt waist without the need for a vest. And it does stand out but not in a glaring way like a loud windowpane.

I have mentioned this before but I think the NSM double-breasted is the best jacket that they make.

No way. You might be looking at where it hits on his hands but where it hit's on his pants is spot on. Not too long or too short.

Shoulders do have a strange shape though.

agree with Alex-- jacket would look better a bit shorter; that's one of the reason i avoided DB for so long, jackets seemed to be cut longer in a lot of brands.
