    IMO the shape of the lapel where it meets the buttoning point is very distinctive.

    I suit will look substantially like the silhouette depicted in medtech's basted fitting. In fact, his suit at this early stage has the same shape as my finished suit[​IMG]

    They made me a pair of jeans - perfect fit, exactly to the toile, but they only lasted 7 months

    An expensive experience.

    Looks good!

    They made me a pair of jeans, but sadly I wore through the knees.

    I'd go back for a heavyweight pair though...

    It's actually really just Joe Morgan now - Roy Chittleborough has retired!:)

    Very handsome. Lovely shaping through the waist. How do you feel about the style, now that you have it, and how does it fit in with the rest of your tailored clothing?

    Thanks for posting pics.

    The house style is certainly distinctive, with more personality than my more somber Richard Anderson navy 3-piece. I've worn it twice so far, and while it drew a few compliments walking around Paris I have to say that "civilians" don't distinguish much between tailoring styles. Meaning I can very easily get away with this at the office and transition directly to dinner without feeling the least bit self-conscious.

    That's one hell of a nice suit, the trousers especially. I quite like the quirky flap on the watch pocket, an unusual way to do them.

    Can you illustrate the inside of the coat please and the finished look of the trousers without wearing the coat? That would just complete the picture of a fine garment.

    Their detailing is impeccable and they are charming!

    I have bought shirts and shoes there before (all bespoke) too:.:)

    I'm searching my photo album of the suburb denim jeans they made me but have no "new" pics.

    This is how they looked towards the end of their life (a toile was made in canvas as for a wool suit and several fittings......)

    I shall definitely go back for a heavier pair!!![​IMG]

    +2, but showing no shirt cuffs. I thought you liked showing those.
