    The Italian guy is saying "I can't make jacket longer". Seems conspicuously short. Shoulder is nice though.

    I guess you are not familiar with a twenty-fold.

    There's some awesome wear and tear going on there.

    At least the old Toff stays in shape to be able to wear a suit that
    is probably decades old. Beautifully cut in any case.

    I prefer the Attolini, even though I usually like British ( A&S version)
    over Italian clothing. The Attolini seems to have more shape and isn't
    it a bit longer? As for the color of the Attolini, too adventurous for
    me.


    I prefer the cut of the Steed (more subdued), but I have to say that the Attolini/Barbera fits remarkably well. I couldn't tell it was RTW -- usually the shoulders are a giveaway, but in this case they look like bespoke shoulders to me.

    Actually, there is a massive resolution photo floating out there that reveals the wear and tear to be... pollen.

    The sleeves and shoulders on the Steed are some of the nicest I've seen from Vox.

    Is his jacket badly frayed along the lower front, or is that just the photo?
