Highly recommended.

 

+1 for PJ. I think you can get by at c.$1300 for basic. Mine run at c.$1.5-2k depending on trimmings. I prefer the hand finishing and soft shoulders etc

I reckon the fit-pic collage sounds like a fair bit of work, not sure jaypee will necessarily be up for doing that. lol.

Romp, do soft shoulders cost more for PJohnson or are all their cuts priced the same, and it's finishing that raises the price?

When I had my stuff made soft shoulders were not extra but hand finishing was.

depends on the shoulder - i think the original soft shoulder is same price and the slightly ruffled (is it called neapolitean?) ones are more

 

Also 1/4 lining is more, hand finishing, certain fabrics 

 

Im also not sure if lighter padding/canvassing is a general improvement he has made or an option 

 

I highly rate the hand-finish vs machine.

Trip was fantastic, but like all other trips, too short. Free for coffee next week? PM me.

Cool man. Are you scheduled to get more stuff made? I do remember you saying your proportions had changed after losing weight recently. Not a bad excuse to get a couple more jackets? wink.gif

need a new navy suit.. its my worst fitting suit since shedding weight.

 

want to find a navy fabric thats subtley more interesting

 

soft shoulder, 2 button, flap/welt pockets, 1/2 lined (i want camo if they have it), hand finished, zip fly (buttons get annoying), kissing horn buttons, 2inch cuff

Anyone remember my friend, the one who was going to buy a Hugo Boss suit for his wedding for $1,400? Well he showed me his suit yesterday--navy cotton from MJ Bale for $1,000 less. It looked great. So happy smile.gif

MJ Bale are now my default suit recommendation. They really don't have much competition, imo...

That's great! I might have to get serious about trying one. So far Herringbone Osaka cut are the only OTR jackets I've found that fit me decently, and they're just overpriced when not on sale I believe. And I've yet to see anything decent on sale. So given it appears that MJB have a very similar cut in their line-up they're sounding like a good option. I'll have to grit my teeth and set foot in DJ again and check them out.. :-)
