Something is off, although the basic tailoring looks very fine. Some of that is the subject's large head w/r/t his torso. Getting everything else to relax might make that less obvious. The shirt collar isn't doing him any favors, and having the DB buttons bunched together so tight also makes it a little cartoon-ish. The choice of suede shoes is neither the tailor's nor the shoemaker's problem.

I really enjoy the look of a double breasted suit, but find all the extra unused buttons ugly and it seems to distract from the natural lines of the suit.  Does anyone make a DB suit without all the extra buttons?  I mean with just the 2 buttons you would actually use when closing the suit only.

^ I have mine made up 2x1.

I've seen it occasionally in RTW, eg Valentino and this Kilgour

^ Those lapels in the last pic look ridiculous. See Cary Grant above for how it's supposed to be done.

Supposed to be done? The rules of classical don't even say that, unless you learned from someone from my generation who got his/her brains fried on drugs. Take the Stratovarius, top classical violin, it is a classic because it can do more, not less. Classic Greek architecture allows you to do more, not less. Violins and Greek architecture that limits is not classical. The mere width of the lapels is not what classical is about. It is how well they are done. Middle of the road that is junk is not classic. Therefore, it is not how wide it is. A magnificent lapel is a sight to behold, and I have seen them, from narrow to medium to wide. Magnificence is part of the definition of classical. Group thinking can have many errors which one has to guard against.

Words can change no doubt. But, making them dumber- go ahead.

Dormeuil Tonik 2000 cloth. First person that says the sleeve length isn't symmetrical gets an eye roll.

Suit looks good, but you forgot the pocket square.

^ David how do you think the tonik 2000 compares to the tonik?
