Generally speaking their suits are all light (no or minimal shoulder padding), but in terms of actual fit I'm sure they can accommodate your personal taste. I don't think anyone here (except maybe Romp because he works there) could definitively say 'yes' or 'no' though. And even then, you'd have to go there in person and explain in person to know for sure.

 

Thanks for the information.  I'm interested in Patrick Johnson because his quality seems to be superb for the ticket price, and he has access to high quality trimmings, like trouser banding and mother of pearl buttons, which many local tailors unfortunately do not.  Lovely buttons on your latest suit kayhill, but I think I'd need bottoms almost twice as wide as yours!

 

However, I must say, whilst my preference is for medium soft shoulders, I prefer a heavier cloth, which I have found to present a cleaner drape and a more sculpted silhouette to my somewhat rounded physique.  A sort of cross between an updated Anderson and Sheppard's and Zegna Milano block (of yesteryear).  

 

I will contact them though.

They definitely provide a lot of bang for your buck. Haha, I wouldn't go that far! The MOP buttons are actually slightly wider than 'standard' horn buttons.

There are a variety of options available including roped shoulder, lined/unlined, a variety of fabrics, no shortage of options to choose from. Good to ask Tom directly. They can do a fuller trouser, most definitely.

MOP buttons on a suit? Wouldn't they suit (no pun intended) a sports coat with patch pockets in a shade of blue or are they able to be coloured and if so wouldn't they lose their natural luster?

In an effort to dress down and nail uni fits, getting into #streetwear, I've developed a huge love for TOJ. I have the TOJ 0 2013 Leather Sleeved Varsity, and on the way is the Minimalist Double Rider in Black with Silver Hardware. I'm looking at ordering the MA - 1 made out of Super 150s suiting wool. They have black navy, but can source other colours, no crazy stuff though. I'm thinking just black, but does anyone have any recommendations?

Sounds like you decided the zip thing wasn't an issue on the mdr?  I'm procrastinating with TOJ can't decide between black/brown/oxblood mdr/2013dr.  However I am going to learn my lesson from yesterday and get an order in by the weekend.  Charly quoted 20 weeks, sounds good will get back to me in time for the cooler months.

However, I prefer fuller and less tapered trousers than any than I saw depicted.

Many Thanks.

They are pretty flexible especially the Napoli line which essentially is semi-bepoke. While Patrick prefer a leaner silhouette let them on the outset that you prefer a fuller cut.
My stuff from PJ are not as fitted as the stuff you see on his tumblr especially the trousers.

Yeah, I can't wait. TOJ is so good. Gerry has one on the way too!

Well placed

A friend contacted me regarding the quality of Suit Supply shirting - now, I don't own any so can't comment - but hoping someone here has experience with them so I can pass the information along?
