I like the way it looks on you. It's darted in the back. That's why it feels snug. Sleeves are good. You will appreicate the length when you wear a jacket.

Thanks for the opinion. I think "eighties" when I see wide lapels and large mouth, low hanging gorges. It's has a 3-2 button stance and the owner made the mistake of buttoning the top button. It probably would look better if the middle button was buttoned instead. I can't see how the lapels roll, if at all. Perhaps that would improve with pressing. Again, something bothers me about those lapels. They don't look contemporary like some of the more current jacket styles.

Agreed, especially if you only button the middle button and let it roll.

The PRL Custom Fit shirts in M fit me perfectly otr except the sleeves are about 1.5/2 inches too short (6'1). Anyone know of any alternatives?

PRL makes long length sleeves (34-35)

Mine are 2 years old, maybe they're longer now? Website says 33-34 for M, which sounds about right since I'm normally 35/36.

Anyone know of a suit similar to this one, but in the <$1K range?

Also an ID on similar shoes would be great too.

That *brioni coat up there looks like it's been altered shorter. Really awkward looking!

It has! Thanks for noticing. The label says the size is a Euro 52R. The length is 29" from BOC. In my experience, a Euro 52R has a length of 31" from BOC or more. That means the previous owner cut 2" off the bottom (a big alteration). The button stance and everything is thrown off when this is done. I agree. It looks awkward.

Hello all:

 

I just purchased a custom made suit and when the final product came, I noticed a slight difference between the way the darts on the front end.  On the left (first picture), the dart comes apart in a noticeable V, while the one on the right (2nd picture) finishes cleanly.  Something that is not apparent because the photos are taken head-on with flash is that the one of the left also puffs up ever so slightly because there is loose fabric around the top.  I mentioned this to the tailor and he said that it just requires ironing, but no matter how much pressing I do, it does not go away.  This is my first custom suit and the first suit I've bought since college 10 years ago so I'm by no means an expert on this.  My question is:

 

1. Is this a defect?  Should I go back to the tailor to have him fix it?

2. What is involved in fixing something?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice

Has anyone looked at the new mens shoes from Saks? They are made in Italy, look to be high quality and are priced at $300. The salesperson said their motivation was to produce an in house product that competes with Alden/AE but with more continental looks. It looks to me that they may well have done that. He did not know who was making them.
