It's a matter of personal preference. I would not, however, suppress the waists further or shorten the jackets on my DBs.

As good as it gets!

Posted this in the CBD WAYWRN thread a while back (apologies for the unnatural pose, and poor photo).

It's a Steed, 1B SB birdseye. Am actually wearing the same suit today - may try to get a better picture of it

Love the 1 button...
post #1624 of 2382
Thanks - I was a bit hesitant about going with 1B on this.

All my Kilgour suits were made with one button, and I really like the clean, lean look it gives. On the other hand, I had not seen many examples of Steed 1B suits, so wasn't sure how a drape 1B would turn out - but I am very pleased

Very nice, but hate the one button. Just not my thing. The cut looks good, though.

As promised - somer more, hopefully slightly better, pictures of the Steed 1B SB

Trousers - medium rise, flat front, with a slight break and 1 3/4" cuffs (should really be wearing braces)



Coat - no padding, front cut



Overall fit pic



Lapel and tie close up (tie is Emma Willis by Drakes, shirt by Sean O'Flynn)



Bonus shoe porn shot (G&G MTO, Hayes with an added cap; 3 years old and going strong)

Apart from the cuff , great suits...

I'm not a cuff man at all except for double-breasted suits..

Can somebody explain the "front cut"?

Not exactly.

As I understand it, a coat with front cut has a dart that runs from the armhole all the way to the bottom. Thus the coat has six rather than four panels: two fronts, two backs, and two "sidebodies".

A dart is a cut that shapes the coat without separating it into additional seperate panels of cloth.

Both my current tailors have mentioned giving me "sidebodies" - I assume then I'm getting the front cut?

Ah ok, the fish cut is that extra curved dart, correct?
