    Your right shoulder looks lower than the left. Is that correct or is it just the way you are posing? If that is indeed your natural posture, bring it back to NSM to adjust for the low right shoulder

    It needs more shoulder extension, and is that linen?

    Mina's style doesn't have much, if any, shoulder extension.

    Interesting, i am taking a suit length of 0520 to her Monday. Was her rationale that 0520 wasn't a great choice as a SC on its own?

    I think so (if I remember correctly) and as a first jacket the hopsack would be a better choice.

    520 is better for a suit than a SC.

    Wore my NsM shawl DB last night for NYE festivities. This jacket is tough to photograph well, but hopefully you get the idea.

    Looks nice! This thread pretty much died, I remember the days when NsM was a new kid around the block and everybody talked about them. Are people still commissioning from them or is Vox single handedly placing all orders with them now?

    I have received 1 shirt, 6 SCs and 2 suits in the last 18 months, with 1 suit, 1 blazers suit and 1 SC in process. Mina is as busy as ever and still doing great work

    Does she still come to NY? If so, how often? One of the issues many faced was lack of consistency in fit.

    I had trouble with jackets-- which I now get elsewhere. Trousers are much better, and shirts have been quite reliable.

    My only real complaint with their service is their willingness to respond to-- or read fully-- e-mails. That, and their decision that Boston wasn't working out for them. :(
