1) Braces wear hot. The felt ones especially.

2) If your pants are not cut high, braces don't really work. They will also slip off your shoulders.

3) At a certain point, I became uncomfortable being seen in them by business associates who don't know me well.

Good reasons all, thank you.

Damn good point.

I never thought about this, but it makes sense - I'm always sweating up a storm at weddings, when I'm wearing black tie attire (as is appropriate, my trousers are cut for braces).

That could also be because I'm the first one dancing on the tables, though.

As Jack Welch once said, "The hardest thing I had to do in my twenty years at GE was figuring out what reality was." This "spending a lot of time" statement [in addition to what Despos wrote about liking the DNA of a maker] sums up to me what one should look for in makers/tailor to get great looking and fitting clothes. Or should I write - the ability to spend a lot of time reflects good communication and mutual personal satisfaction - client gets maker, and maker gets client. I would also submit that it is specifically Mariano and Gerano [spelling?] that makes a difference for you. My maker recently teamed up with a specific tailor that I am very excited about - the triad of client, stylist/fitter/maker, and tailor is complete. - M

Whnay, Superb balance, cut, fit, fabrics--true bespoke artistry! Is your dress shirt also one by Mr. Rubinacci?

Whnay,

Is it your posture or is there excess fabric in the abdomen region of your coats? Also, consider less break in your trousers; in the case of the first garment, as you noted, the side tabs may explain the fit of the pant.

The trouser break on the new suits is squarely because of the side tabs and my lack of time to fiddle with them. Not sure about the abdomen comment - I haven't noticed any excess fabric.

Maybe it's my eyes. The fit of the coats in first set of images are remarkable; just thought I saw rippling of fabric on the two coats above.

Well I think it might have something to do with the fabric weight of them, both are less than 10 oz. All I can say is that they hang as well as the others that I have but as I mentioned the pants are not ideal - wear larger because of the side tabs and recent weight loss.

Many thanks gentlemen - much appreciated.
