    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.

    I can't believe this went 4 minutes without a reply. It's a pretty dramatic suit, with the high button stance and extreme waist suppression, but I think it looks great.

    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!

    As a fellow double-breasted Chan traveler, I must say: that looks sharp. Well done.

    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.

    Now this is how a DB should look. Love the waist suppression and button stance.

    I'm with Johnnynorman in that I'm finding the most recent Chan suits very impressive.

    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!

    Many would say that DBs work best on the thin.

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