    Thank you.

    I read somewhere (probably here) that Vox's cut differs quite a bit from Steed's "house style", at least in that the quarters are more open and he has less drape. I don't ask for any changes from their house style, however. If anything, I want the quarters of my jackets to be more closed than would be the default. This jacket is a little different in that it has a single button closure and an action back. A little stylistic whimsy.

    Perhaps just the angle but the jacket looks a bit short and the buttoning stance a little high. IMHO

    Pretty much. The jacket they are working on for me will be similar.

    I really do need some Dover in my life. Although they're out of my price range, for now.

    The problem is that they keep going up in price all the time or maybe that's just here. They're my most comfortable pair of dress shoes so the cost per wear is pretty good [​IMG]

    I see what you are saying. The photo is positioned almost at crotch level. IRL, the jacket is not short, as it covers my behind successfully. The button stance may be on the higher side as you suggest. Nor sure. Besides the fit, there is something in the patterns/colors that bothers me. It may be the high contrast between the pants and jacket, with the low contrast between the jacket and tie. I think.

    Too much contrast between pants and sport coat?

    You think the buttoning points are significantly different? I'm not sure I see the difference there, nor in the shoulders, come to that, although I accept that a more discerning eye than mine could.

    I saw the Permanent Style article. I thought it was interesting from a classification point of view. Not sure about the attempt to assign a particular style to a certain body type, though.

    Very nice suit, @bienluienapris - especially liking the soft shoulders.


    Good fit on the suit, @blekit - however i do think (and this has been adressed by others as well, i think) that your jacket could be a bit longer (maybe 2-3 cm max). Still, a solid look.

    Today: green with envy. Fabric is an Ariston Soft Tweed Donegal, cut by my boys at Sons of Savile Row. The shirt sleeves are shy, as it stands.

    Yes, I agree with that - that's a problem with all of my suits/jackets from Suitsupply (except of Lazio fits which are longer).

    The issue is, that except of the jacket length, all other dimensions are almost perfect. Nonetheless I'm trying out long sizes for this summer collection purchases and if my local tailor successfully alters back and sleeves of the jacket this problem will be covered.

    And since I'm planning to start my bespoke adventure this year it will hopefully disappear from my wardrobe entirely over time. In the meantime I must wear what I have :)

    I finished my shining session then I found a pair of yellow waxed laces in the bag. So this idea came to me. I actually listed the wholecut for sale few days ago because I don't see much excitement in it. But then I decided to put the yellow laces on and this happened. Now I think I'm going to keep the wholecut for the laces. What do you guys think? yay or nay? It's gonna be spring/ summer soon anyway.

    New shoes are great, just a bit too formal for the rest in my eyes.
    :laugh: Exactly. Blue jacket and red tie is obviously not a problem. I don't find the tie itself hideous, as cm wants me to. But I strongly object to burgundy and true red together.
    Simple and nice! Only wish the shoes were darker, like the tie.

    Thank you for the feedback. I think you are right. One of the rare occations I should have opted for the black shoes.
