    ^ Outstanding already, but what would you think about adding, oh, 1cm length?

    Thank you. If you saw it straight on, you would change your mind. The length is just right by every "rule"....I appreciate the input though, Cox.

    I can corroborate on the length being proper... I nabbed a shot of the back while Murl wasn't looking, because THAT'S NOT WEIRD AT ALL.

    Narrow the shoulders a bit, take up the right sleeve, and a couple other minor tweaks and it should be good.

    He can be hit or miss when narrowing the shoulders. You'll have to wait and see how it turns out before making any adjustments. I see no issues with the coat at the moment.

    Thanks. I was happy with the fitting. It was Edwin's suggestion to narrow the shoulders so I'm hoping for the best. He plans on sending the jacket in August and then having me wear it when they come back in October...sounded good to me.

    Length looked good to me at the fitting. The front hem was right at the middle of your thumbs and the front-back balance looked right. And the overall effect was nice. iPhone camera lens strikes again, I expect.

    I think it's hard to say much at this stage. Aside from the length, the jacket just isn't far enough along yet.

    The length looks nice though. And the tailoring seems clean.

    Shoulders are often cut a little wider at first, so they can be narrowed-in during the fittings. A lot of tailors draft their patterns like that (although I think Edwin aims to cut something a little more accurate from the go -- some tailors really just rely on the fitting). I also find that I prefer to show more shirt cuff than Edwin, although you can judge for yourself at the final fitting.
