The cut looks fantastic. It's a shame that he is more fashion forward, his legs look out of proportion, he need to squat. :uhoh:

 

But again, the cut is fantastic. It's a shame that I don't live anywhere near OTC or Despos. :(

To be honest I don't have too many clients whose desires or standards for tailoring are at level SF.
Most of my clients who want stuff fitting close to the body are after tight clothes. I always put up the warnings and cautions because I abide by a real tailoring standard but at the end of the day my checks are signed by my clients and if they want it tight that's how they get it.

It must be hard looking at some requests and thinking they're sartorial car crashes..

Think this was one of my first suits, was pretty cheap at least. Hope to have 3 more to post after my next trip with higher end fabric and tailor.

Well in a business way, you just detach yourself emotionally from their choice. That's a level of maturity you reach early on in this biz. The next level is to find a way to become as emotionally invested as the client is even tho in your heart of hearts, you don't really like it.
It creates a stronger draw from a wide variety of clients when they see that you serve a rather wide variety and not just the rogue or regular client.

Really great,indeed.

Remember to me the best works of Saville Row.

A DB with the right and classic proportions could be fantastic!

Great tailor,bad customers.

Do you try something to point out certain issues???

I used to ask my tailor advice all the time because there a difference between a dream suit and what is actually possible.

This isn't something I struggle with because my branding is set up in a way that effectively communicates to the rather wide variety of clients (or potential clients) that "Every Style Celebrated" (my branding tagline) means whether you're edgy and into bizarre fashion or your standards are in line with what is approved of on a forum like SF, you can get it from me.

Too many brands/stores easily show themselves to cater to one side or the other. I can see the movement in the country demanding mass acceptance so I simply built my branding up around that concept. Think Tom James vs. Astor & Black.

For the record only and not as promotion, my custom brand is called "Rogues & Regs" which is for the Rogue or Regular client. Which ever you are, you are celebrated.

In short, I have clients from one side of the menswear spectrum to the other and I never feel like I'm out of balance in who I'm attracting.

Sorry, not a fan of the cut - particularly the lapels.

I hate it myself, although it does look pretty good on him.

Clients hardly ever know what they want.

I was almost tempted to argue that, but coming from you I guess I can't. Ha if anyone else said that I'd coke up with since philosophical response like "no, they always know what they want, they just need a human shovel known as a tailor to dig them out of their sartorial grave"

Oh what a nerdi am on SF posting at 345 am.
Or slightly drunk after a long day greatening my already semi head forward posture behind a needle and thread... And an iPad.
What a tough life

It's one one of my first suits so I didn't know much. What don't you like about the lapel? Too small? I'm quite interested in getting a dark charcoal chalkstripe flannel one in the future.

 

Also going to get a burgundy blazer made in Dugdale New Fine Worsted. Might be a bit flash but I think it'd be nice. What do you guys think about hacking/slanted pockets on double breasted suits? I know everyone has their preferences for single breasted suits to begin with, but do you think it being double breasted changes anything?
