    Good luck with that project, be interesting for some smart young creative am sure. Plenty of examples of those doing it well out there. No need to reinvent the wheel, watch and learn who is creatively leading the pack. Slowear recently updated their site, looks pretty impressive so far. They seem to be a early adopter of some better looking sites. They also have an excellent Blog type page that you can subscribe to.

    I wasn't a fit critique per se, just they way it fit me. I absolutely love the way the Garrison lookson others, eg:

    I just don't have the slim upper waist that makes it looks like this. As for the jacket length, this could also have affected me as I'm 6'2" and really require a long jacket which they didn't have. I think the lapels looked even bigger because of the plaid/POW check.

    In other news, Sportscraft has some pretty cool unconstructed cotton/linen jackets/suits at affordable prices for those looking for racewear. Lapel is too skinny, but they look alright for $299 less 25% off or something.

    Anyone interested in a brand new pair of RMW Macquaries black calf, screwed sole, size 7 F-fitting? Just paid $400 for them. Asking $300. (Thought I'd give locals first go before going to B&S.)

    Shipping will be around a week, but factor in at least a fortnight on top of that to get the order finalised.

    Lapel sizes for PJ coats is based on whatever block size your coat is based on. The MTM system they have adopted doesn't allow miniute changes in lapel size. You can only choose between the standard lapel, and the wide (very wide in reality) lapel.

    Simon at Elite - I have a few comments:
    - website, yup, won't say anymore
    - and yes much less words, and potentially...
    - (my contribution) more pictures! why don't you start posting pictures of garments you have delivered to customers...it will probably gives us something else to look at other than the website...most SF poster will be able to tell whether that's what they are after by looking at real pics of suits you have delivered...

    My $0.02..

    his lapel options are:

    Notched or Peak

    in Narrow, Standard and Wide widths

    With or without button hole on the roll.

    You can even specify things like AMF stitch distance from the edge which is a cool touch :)

    I know they originally had a narrower lapel. Haven't seen it for so long that I assumed they didn't do it anymore.

    I have coats in both the standard and the wide lapel models. I find the wide too wide.

    Yes, 3-roll-2 is a new option.
