Neat. Is the last suit your version of M's blazersuit? Why didn't you go w/ the LL Navy Brisa? Too light in color and weight?

Yes, this is the first of the Swiss Army Suitsâ„¢, but the Secret Stuff is not yet visible.

And yes, I prefer this H&S fresco not only because of the color and weight, but if you hold it up, you can see that it is more porous than even lighter frescos.

Things are getting trimmed up, so I hope that will be living neither large nor small, but exactly right.

No, just a spread collar...I don't use collar stays, so there's a bit of soft roll to the collar.

I see. In fact, I think I can see your shirt through the pants, it's so porous. Looking forward to the Secret Stuff. Good to be able to follow you guys and learn.

Ok I'm envious!

Now when you're own currency is Sterling how do you get suits made for you at a good rate? Should I emigrate for a year or two?

All I can say is WOW! You are truly an inspiration!

Very interesting. Why not on the flannel DB?

As you can guess, to get the kind of shaping that you and I like with a one piece back takes a guy who knows what he is doing. This is the type of feature you aren't going to find in RTW. Thank you. - B
Raphael does one piece backs on bold patterned cloths as a matter of course. My new guy is making me a section 8 sportcoat with a one piece back. He is piece dyeing the cloth . That is big time. And, like you, I give my props to FNB for the idea. May I assume that the different fitting stages are because the one-piece back needed a baste, or were they ordered at different times?

You, Sir, do have some very roped jacket shoulders on order
