    That looks good (i don't like pants from what i seen but it's really personal, jacket fits really good i think), the length is ok and not too long. is it bespoke ? Who made it ?

    thanks.
    It is Suitsupply RTW. I bought a long size, because basically this model is cut too short for my liking.
    Pants are a bit too slim, but thats what you get when buying Suitsupply...

    Not liking the shoulders, nor the tight jacket.

    But that's just a preference.

    Nice, Timo! I like it how it is. I personally believe that when one works on his body the jacket needs to show that. Not all can use a jacket that fits closely to their waist.

    Great jacket length. Reminds me a lot of Cary Grant in His Girl Friday.

    I came across the Canali jacket on ebay. Does this look like an orphan or blazer?

    There is also this Hickey Freeman x Opening Ceremony (Mahogany, C Series) as well that the seller describes as a blazer, but the buttons tell me its orphaned.

    The first one, maybe not given the buttons, but that color is very hard to pull off as an odd jacket. Also it looks like it's from the 80s. Avoid.

    The second one is definitely an orphan suit jacket.

    I dig it. Wish SS cuts didn't cause those sleeve pitch issues. The body fits like a god damn glove otr.

    Not the greatest pose, BUT this is what you get when a tailor sells Astor & Black (I believe a first for the Co)
    So, my p2p on this is 21". My true waist measures 39.5". Doesn't look like, right?
    If I took it off and showed myself in a tshirt you wouldn't believe it was me. BUT, that's what a suit is supposed to do!

    I grew up in the days of tight tight pants, huge shoulder pads and asymetrical everything. I've been waiting for something drastic to change in men's fashion. This might be just that. Bring it on.

    After you've seen this page dedicated to the double-breasted I could not remain silent. Look at this jacket made by my tailor .... his jacket is still as constructed in the late 1800s. And look at the shoulder saddled as it makes whole .. for me he remains perhaps the best tailor in Italy.

    [​IMG]

    Note also the neck like salt ... even the fabric is truly vintage. E 'was created in 1940 in Biella in Italy. I bought it in Milan from Il Vecchio Drappiere. They specialize in vintage fabric from clothes ... are good friends of mine .. so for a good price with discount just ask me. http://illvecchiodrappiere.blogspot.it/2013_08_01_archive.html

    To see more pictures of my double-breasted can also visit my blog: http://monsieurbespoke.blogspot.it/ And 'written in Italian but the pictures speak for themselves

    What do you think?
