Retro, you are copying me.
Â I like the pinstripes on the Polo suit, and am hoping for something very similar -- both in terms of cut and fabric -- to the suit you are describing. Â And we probably have the same body type as well.
Wow, I was even a poster in your other thread about your bespoke plans but it didn't sink in that we had more or less the same idea. What I am thinking about is having WW Chan do something very similar to that Polo suit but with double-besom flap pockets instead of flapped patch pockets, and side vents instead of center. Â Depending on Chan's cloth selections, it would probably cost me the same as getting a blue label suit at discounted retail. Â I probably would have given the polo suit a shot if not for the flapped patch pockets (well, that and the fact that polo.com didn't have 38s and 40s by the time it went on sale--$1195 is, um, too much for a half-canvas Corneliani). I think you've had Chan make you a suit with the shoulder padding dialed back a couple of notches from their "standard," haven't you? Â How has that turned out? Â I like a little bit of structure in the shoulders, but for variety's sake if nothing else I was thinking of going with less padding on future orders.
