    I've said it before, and I'll say it again - the Jersey Shore-style tan and chiclet veneers are fooling nobody. This man needs to finally come out of the closet, then he needs to tone it down for everyone's benefit, mainly his. [​IMG]
    Ah....Hamill-tan

    Having just read the last ten pages or so ... I'll make this quick.

    Hello. Goodbye.

    This train wreck is why I've kept away from SF for months. I dip in to take a look and this is the first thing that pops up.

    I thought stuff like this is what makes SF great.

    I suppose if you enjoy black comedies, this thread would be up for an award.

    Well, this thread has more than that. It has an actual garment from the most (or second most) talked about tailor on the forum to rip to shreds. That's a rare treat. Everyone says they want more examples and more pics. Here they are....

    At this point, the discussion of the garment(s) themselves seem almost secondary. Threads like this certainly wouldn't encourage me to post photos of my garments or offer my outfits up for critique. More civil, useful discussions about tailoring could probably be held offline or by pm rather than here...

    Nevertheless, a very stylish dresser and a customer of A & S!

    A&S is terrible, even though the coat fits, because the stripes are not perfectly perpendicular to the ground.

    I am somewhat OK ( well not really. At least I think I know what they are attempting to do and am OK with the principle of it, but not the execution of it, but I digress) with the line of the stripe, even the waist suppression. I think the chest, shoulder and and sleeves could be improved.
    You are happy, enjoy the jacket

    I don't see what is wrong with the chest, the shoulder, or the sleeves.

    I find it absolutely hilarious that some of the most dogged drape h8ers on teh foraz are criticising this jacket for ... insufficient drape! I mean come on. Let's make some attempt at an outward show of consistency people.

    The shoulder fits perfectly and looks the way an A&S shoulder should look: soft, sloped, round, with an open seam.

    The sleeves as viewed from the front are fine. In the back you can see the rumpling but that's fixable. Beyond that, they curve beautifully with the shape of my arms. We see lots of sleeves on this forum that don't curve anywhere near as well as that. Foof tends to point it out and he gets blasted for it. But somehow there is something wrong with these sleeves?

    Can only address what I see in the picture. Could have a different opinion after seeing the jacket on you. Will buy you lunch in the fall.

    Foo's first Rubinacci had a roll on the back under the collar when he posted a picture here but I saw the jacket on him and it would only occur when he took a certain posture. I believe they later corrected the issue.

    OK fine but that does not address any of my points.

    I keep looking for flaws beyond the A line and I don't see them. No one else can articulate them either apart from "too much waist."
