    So I got this charcoal suit tailored. While there are no stripes, the pattern of the wool runs horizontal instead of vertical. See pic, it's pretty obvious on the lapel and sleeves but you can see it on the whole suit IRL.

    What you guys think, is this a deal breaker?

    I don't see a problem. I don't even see what you could possibly think is a problem.

    no worries, you are noticing the grain line of the cloth and it's normal

    They are both vertical and horizontal or you see a diagonal line on a twill weave. The grain may be more pronounced in one direction than the other for effect. It's intentional.

    It's more pronounced in the horizontal direction, is that how it should be?

    That's like saying the color is charcoal and asking if that's how it should be.

    When you say you got the suit "tailored" I assume you mean a bespoke or MTM order? Who was the tailor?
