Here it is viewed perfectly straight-on:

You guys go on and on complaining about robot poses (unless it's Vox, in which case inlove.gif), but when I try to be a little more natural and less concerned about showing off fit, this is what I get.

At first view: too much Duck and not enough Duke . . . TTH (Trying Too Hard) . . .

On second thought, Lino would be proud of you icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Oh, the cooler gray looks better with your complexion than this warmer one, unless you get a tan like Lino.

Looks a hell of a lot better in that pic foo, but I still don't like the button stance. Also, really, those lapels need to come in. The gorge would not look so bad if your lapels didn't look like the wings on Sally Field's Flying Nun hat.

Funny quote, but quite analogous. I do think Foo's dinner suit is flattering; I'm not sure what happened with this commission, however.

It's a stylized pic but the one on the mannequin looks to have wider shoulders than hips, yours seem to fall straight, unlike all your other stuff. I think AY hit it for me, it looks like an altered coat, something that didn't fit you and was altered the fit. Is the jigger button buttoned up on yours?http://www.styleforum.net/t/67666/the-rubinacci-thread/3570_10#

That's not a mannequin. That's me. It's not stylized; I simply whited out everything but the jacket.

I quite like this, though I do wish the exposed front hung more perpendicularly to the ground. And while I like it, I think I'd still prefer a 6 x 2.

That said, something about this really reminds me of that fantastic pic of il vecchio's pinstripe DB; in my opinion, that's still among the best ever posted on the forum, so to note any resemblance is intended as a high compliment.

With a tailor with such a listing I would never order a suit, but always pants and jacket in the same fabric and I would ask them to cut two seperate lengths in front of my eyes.
Otherwise he may just give me as a discount what he actually saves/gains by cutting from a suit length and charging me it as he would separetly cut jacket+pants.

Foo - you really should have posted both pics from the outset. The photo from the one that looks like a mannequin which you whited out has great shape and appears to be a POW. The photo of you on the street looks flat in comparison and the color is more like a Donkey flannel. The two photos together plus any comments from you at the beginning would help to give a true interpretation of the suit as these two images couldn't be more different.

Sleeves also appear to fall an inch longer than the previous pic. I still don't like it for a lot of the same reasons around button placement (something much harder to critique without your overall silhouette including pants) but it has a nicer shape on that second picture.

I saw this movie with Claude Rains from an H.G. Wells novel

"A scientist finds a way of becoming invisible, but in doing so, he becomes murderously insane."
