    It has very closed quarters which I am a little dubious about. It is very Tom Ford too, although it is not made by Tom Ford but someone ex Savile Row who IMHO can do Tom Ford better than TF.

    I don't like the closed quarters, and there's something going on in the chest area that I'm not too keen on. It looks very good from the back though.

    Looks very good on the back, as to front, hum, I have the same problem with my other English looking suit. There seems to be a bit "belly" effect to speak of, even though I have absolutely no belly (and the jacket is suppose to hide it, not make it worse...), I am not sure what's the reason for that.

    edit: By the way why do you say it's very Tom Ford. I would think Tom Ford would have skirt more opened and 2 button.

    Strong shoulders, wide lapels.

    Thought a lot more guys do that than TF, I guess roped shoulder also counts?

    I like it but it's not for me - lapel width and roping are the major reasons. I do like the pattern.

    I like bold patterns on jackets. Looks good to me.

    I like pattern very much.

    I like it. The shoulders look great. The back looks amazing.

    Could you show us a side shot? I wonder if it's a bit short at the front.

    A bit 70s for me. Pic attached of a jacket dating to 1975, for comparison.

    No criticism intended - if you like the look, you like the look.

    Don't like the quarters at all but I think the back looks excellent.

    Not something I would wear but it seems to fit you well.

    Interesting that this was just posted by Mr. Jordan from the 1936 Apparel Arts:

    Not dramatically close but, when I first saw your jacket it certainly made me think vintage.
