Patrick just tweaked my last commission before setting forth on my new ones, which I hope to have photos of soon. Apologies for the picture quality.



The sleeve pitch is a bit off. Besides that I'd love to hear your thoughts.

According to the fabric label, the cloth is a Scabal S120 wool and cashmere dark grey 3/4" chalkstripe, though I could have sworn it was in the 100s book. I'm not complaining.

That could be straight off of Savile Row. It's a very bold suit, and I like it a lot (though I don't think I could pull it off). I really am digging the Chan suits we've seen on the board recently. It seems that the shape of the coats are different with Patrick being the head guy now.

I must say that most suit coats recently exhibited on this Forum lean toward a dramatic cut that features extreme waist suppression and a shorter length than I would not opt for. That being said, it looks very sharp.

Congrats Whoppee!

the waist suppression looks great, my cup of tea. otherwise the pic is not lit to where I can see anything else. If the one button wasnt reflecting light, I wouldnt know if this was DB or SB, by the photo...so +1 on another pic in better lighting.

Bottoms of the trouser legs look a little more flared than I prefer. But I'm much stodgier than you. I'm a taper-with-cuffs guy.

The jacket looks to be a very fine example. Congratulations!

I had no idea thin people could look good in a DB until now. Very impressive!

I'm not sure I'd like to request something of a tailor using the terms "make" and "whoopee" in the same sentence.
