    It's full bespoke. It's a blazer suit, so the jacket has patch pockets. I have ordered gray and lovant odd trousers to be worn withe tat coat. What do you think about the fit? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks for all your comments.

    Problems:

    - Jacket collar not clean and may be too low (should hug your neck really tight, especially for bespoke), picture #4 clearly shows the gap around YOUR left neck

    -Jacket length too short (for my taste). I know it's all the fashionable rage now, but like everything else, it too shall pass. You'll be left with a jacket that's unwearable (kinda like wearing a three button jacket when the fashionable thing is a two-button)

    -Jacket waist is way too tight for you such that the vents on the side-profile shots are flaring open, no good at all [​IMG] (either that or your posture is off, compared to when you were being measured for the suit. If you lean forward a bit/slouch forward a bit, this flaring of the vent would dissappear)

    -too much bunching around the bicep areas of the jacket sleeves.

    -Pants are pretty decent, I'm sure I can nitpick the thighs but it's not such a big deal

    The depressions in the sides of your sleeveheads, when the sleeves are viewed head on. They look like > or <.

    Upper arms, deltoid region, where the sleeve head concaves in, instead of falling down straight.




    It was THE topic around here for a while, generating much controversy and grief for the participants, but an all around good time for the spectators.

    Bespoke, with 3 fittings in process.

    Very surprised at the result.

    No better than an off-the-rack with alterations, at this point.


    Just goes to show that all BESPOKE are not created equal.

    It could most certainly be worse.

    The fit seems fine overall, and that tie absolutely killer, for what thats worth.

    Maybe the divot issues, but the collar and waist?

    Simply unaccetable for bespoke with 3 fittings.

    In the tailors defense- two fitting took place before Christmas.

    The blue tie is Sam Hober.

    I don't think divots are a big problem. I like the overall fit, but I agree, it might be touch tight in the waist.

    It fits ok but it shouldn't fit like that,especially after 3 fittings. I can see the rumples on the pants (back shot),suit jacket has issues too. It would be ok for a RTW suit but definitely not bespoke.
