    I'm not sure if you want to subject yourself to that kind of scrutiny, example:

    LOL There's something a bit Eyes Wide Shut about this photograph.

    Looks like a very good tailor! Hopefully I can find a reason to go there and purchase a new wardrobe!

    Do you get your dress shirts from them as well?

    I love it.

    I think we might be the same size. Do you mind telling me your height?

    Very disturbing.... but i think i can, i think i can!

    The sleeve pitch on all of your jackets have been flawless. Mafoofan would be proud.

    Thanks!

    Nope, their dress shirts are not such a bargain. Most of my shirts are from jantzen still.

    I love it.

    Thanks, i'm just 173cm or about 5'8.

    Detail pics as requested. Pick stitching on the edges of the vent flap as well (not pictured):

    Nice :)

    Is that some of the Rangoon I sent you? I know I sent the lighter grey stuff your way ... but I can't remember whether you already had the darker stuff.

    It is! This is the 0126 you sent me. The lighter gray 0123 is waiting anxiously to be turned into a DB suit.. but that'll have to wait till next year probably.

    I look forward to seeing it; it was the last bit of Rangoon in that colour ever made.

    ^My brother made a suit out of it, and he's getting it this weekend. I'll try my best to convince him to be photographed for the interwebz!

    The color of both these cloths are very, very nice.. my tailor is tremendously impressed with them. And I forgot to mention how awesome AndrewRogers is as a seller!

    You have found an excellent tailor and your keen eye for detail and design means you have created some fine suits.

    Though some would say it is 'boring' I actually think that the matching colour of the lining looks absolutely right in the suit - I must say I have done the same in my latest commission. The full lining is preferable as well. The lack of labels other than your name and the discrete one for Minnis about the ticket pocket looks right as well.

    Is the tweed coat lined or does the belt back interfere with this?

    Congratulations - I look forward to seeing more of your future purchases.

    Something different! My GF's winter coat...We used a different tailor this time - very much cheaper @ only about $120 CMT. Fused construction unfortunately.. though I had thought it would be canvassed [​IMG]

    Buttons were purchased from RJ Weldon, and lining is bemberg from a fabric store in SG. Fabric is an english tweed bought off the ebay store British Textiles:

    ^ I like it a lot (though perhaps it's the hanger, not the clothes).

    The hanger is cute as a button. Nice find.
