I hate these sorts of demands, as I find it infinitely perplexing why anyone thinks I must be "fair" by pointing out negatives when I've over and over again explained what I look for in a well-tailored suit or jacket. You are free to agree or disagree. I'm not just throwing around vague compliments and I'm not a demigod judging from above.
This is not meant to be an ad hominem attack on your judgment or taste, so let's forget about fairness as to you. For the most part, I really like the majority of LH's output that I've seen on here. But, as you and Bill are among the most vocal supporters of LH, I truly would like to see/hear your opinions as to where LH sometime's misses the mark. This would be especially helpful to me and others if/when we come to the decision to someday (sooner or later) commission something from Mariano et al.
FWIW, I've always respected your opinions and writings on LH, so I'm interested in your reply. Certainly, you must have done similar research before visiting LH for the first time.
I have to admit I didn't care for the examples given in your original thread inquiring about Russell Plaid, but I really like this, it's a beautiful jacket. I love the pin stripe suit too, and the lining is pretty rocking.
Foofy, can you point to any examples of LH work that you think misses the mark? Given your zealous support of LH, I think it's fair that you also point to work that falls short of the high bar that you and others have set for them.
I can, my navy sharkskin generally misses the mark (especially as compared to my other garments). I blame it partly on my fabric choice - a 8 oz just doesn't keep its shape as a 12 oz+. I've thought about having it remade but I don't want to bother with it - its good enough, just not perfect.
