    How prone to wrinkling are cotton Corneliani ID jackets? Thanks!

    I'd just like an opinion on the fit of this shirt... from what you can see of course. These are the best fitting shirts I've found off the rack so far within my budget, it's not in my head is it? Haha. [​IMG] Don't mind the tie. I know it's heinous. Probably late 90s-ish Giorgio Armani. [​IMG]

    I'm going to have to strongly disagree. Too much fabric everywhere. I see shoulder overhang and sleeves cut too wide.

    What is the usual delivery time for bespoke Ambrosi pants?

    Thank you.


    - B


    They only deliver in years in which one can see Haley's comet. Part of their charm.

    I posted this picture of me wearing a suit in the WAYWRN and the guys answer that there are too many things wrong to start with it so... as I need advice and don't want to insist over there, though about posting it here for critic.
    I can see (now) that the coat looks big in the chest area and the panst are long. The shirt is really too big for my actual size (I lost a lot of weight after buying it) though it's been tailored so I know I need a new one.
    Something else I can't see ?
    Should I have the coat tailored or is too big for that?
    I still like the tie so please don't tell me it's wrong, too [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    At a guess: shoulders a bit too wide, button-point a bit too high, jacket a little bit too long, trousers far too long. It's not that bad though, is it?

    im not the expert but it seems the pants are a bit long and baggy in the crotch, the jacket sleeves a bit short and the button stance is funny, the jacket just looks off (this could because of how you are standing, good pics are hard to get) and possibly too long. sorry bro it comes from love.

    I have 2 questions...

    (1) what is the best fabric to make a suit out of that is conducive for south Florida weather?

    (2) how much fabric is needed to make a pair of trousers for someone with a 44-46 waistline?


    Linen, cotton, silk.

    Depends on inseam, but probably a little over 2 yards. Get 2.5 to be safe.

    Jacket length is fine. Any shorter and it wont cover your rear and you will look ridiculous. Sleeves are a bit too short.

    I think the jacket is about an inch too long. Could just be bad posture though.
