    Heh, thanks [​IMG] I think this suit will be great once it fits. Now that my tailor has got me quite dialed in, I'm really hoping it will!

    I wouldn't change anything with the jacket, Bro. That looks fantastic to me!

    I hope the one i get looks nearly as good. [​IMG]

    Just uploaded a new pic where you can tell it's tight, and the upper sleeves have some funny wrinkles due to forward shoulders. Fortunately there's more than enough outlet at the waist and seat of the jacket, hope there's enough under the collar so the shoulders can be shifted too...

    I'm so bored I took the time to Foof myself (shortened and "let out" jacket and fixed shoulders):

    I like this quite a bit. I just wish that most DB jackets had a lower button stance.

    Yeah, I can see where the jacket is a little tight and it's also a teeny bit long- but it still looks good.

    There aren't a whole lot to choose from OTR where I looked but the one I found looks pretty "boxy" on me but I think i can have my tailor take it in.

    I can say I'm certainly lucky with off the rack clothing - forward shoulders are a pain but usually it's just that and it doesn't always look bad. On the other hand, not many balance problems and usually everything looks quite clean, this is a special case because it's a drop 7 and I usually look for a drop 6.

    It's easy for a DB to look boxy - you certainly need to make sure it's as close as possible to your body without looking tight. Wider lapels and a narrower wrap help, but those aren't commonly found off the peg.
