Dear @lordsuperb,

What do you exactly mean by "what"?

Can we not have our own opinion? Can we not not have a different taste (than yours)?

The DB suits of the Armoury gentleman and the other gentlemen are extremely nice, but I prefer a higher lapel which is met by a less vertical collar, the latter being in a way closer to the shoulder line.

Not to mention that in this Thread, a zillion of suit supply DB garments have already been posted, which sport a similar feature and welcomed by everyone!

In order to remind the said design to our fellow members, I am posting two images of suit supply DB garments from my image file here below.

Cheers,

Dimitris

PS
I sincerely hope that you did not mind!

It wasn't a matter of taste it was more about the position of the photos at two different angles and you making the case for one collar over the other. I can't tell much from the photos...

Dear @lordsuperb,

Thank you for your reply.

Well,..., I can. More to that, I would have never attempted such a comparison if I wasn't adamant of the specifics in the case.

Let me post an image of the other owner of B&R wearing a windowpane DB suit in the previous house cut, this time in the more obvious - for comparative reasons - angle; the difference here is more than evident!

Cheers,

Dimitris

Have any of had (or seen) success with a DB blazer suit? I'm thinking about commissioning a navy suit with patch pockets, but in a fabric and weave (hopsack?) that would allow the jacket to be worn seperately as a blazer, albeit with navy buttons. Could this work well, or would the patch pockets ruin the suit vibe, while the navy buttons ruin the blazer vibe?

Dear @9thsymph,

First of all, I would like to ask you about the weight of the fabric, or in other words, during which season do you plan - should you go forward - to wear your DB suit?

Cheers,

Dimitris

I wouldn’t do the navy buttons. I have tried. Doesn’t really work. Looks like part of a suit

4-season-ish cloth like something from smith's finmeresco bunch in the 10-13oz range or thereabouts...

that's my concern, but what about this:
I think if you got polished navy corozo buttons it could work but it is not the best option. Kinda like wearing a worsted three piece with a black bow tie to a black tie event. It kinda works (arguably in this day and age works) but there are better options

For me personally it’s more the ‘even if everyone else doesn’t know I would know’
