    My favorite double-breasted.

    You shall note the narrow waist, just how I like them.

    You will all note the drape.

    The sheen and lapels are perhaps a little too ostentatious for everyday workwear, but I quite like this DB suit, I have yet to own one, but some look rather good [​IMG]

    It doesn't look bad at all especially if you're younger and more fashion forward than us the more conservative crowd.

    You may get bored quickly with it because it is less versatile than a classic db.

    I like the waist treatment.

    What year was that made, or do you know? (I am assuming it is vintage.)

    LK, I think I'd prefer that without the bottom button fastened.

    As it's my preferred style, I may as well: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] All are 1980s; I'd be lost purchasing a new one if it was not as close fitting as these. My tailor here will have to use them as a starting point

    The shirt and tie are awful, and I haven't decided whether the lapels are glorious or grotesque. The cut, though, is something else.
    Matching shirts and neckties are the height of taste.
    What year was that made, or do you know? (I am assuming it is vintage.)
    I don't know the date, but it was made by a Lewis Ferszt of Savile Row in brown mohair. I assume late '60s, early '70s.

    Interesting sleeve length Barims, it looks good on you. How far above the wrist bone are your jacket sleeves cut?

    A tailor accidentally shortened sleeves of a jacket of mine, and I have wrote the jacket off, but your photos have made me re-consider.

    It's from Reiss,

    http://www.reiss.co.uk/shop/mens/suits/romeo/navy/

    I just bought the pin dot tie shown in that photo and think it looks pretty good.

    I think Reiss sometimes have some great designs, but my one criticism would be the quality is not great in their suits, from my past experience.


    Reiss suits , in general, do not look bad at all but you're just getting what you're paying for in terms of quality.
