    Nice suit. With that oh-so-carefully-sculpted sprezzatura.

    One recent suit (Minnis 520). Looks and feels nice, if very different from A&S.

    I am 5'9" and circa 200 pounds (at the time) and I have a MTM Fresco non padded fully linedI have a MTM Fresco non padded fully-lined on a picture posted earlier.
    After careful study, I have found that lapel should be 0,67 of the distance between neck and end of shoulder. For me, it is 16 cm hence lapel is 11 cm.


    Impressive tailoring work. It is Hitchcock?

    Brown DB suit and wide striped shirt seems successful combo.

    Dang, this thread is giving me inspiration! I only have one DB that fits me well so I'm on the hunt for great-fitting pieces.
