any rtw brands that have db aesthetic close to edward sexton? dude cut the meanest db arounf
Not the greatest pose, BUT this is what you get when a tailor sells Astor & Black (I believe a first for the Co)
So, my p2p on this is 21". My true waist measures 39.5". Doesn't look like, right?
If I took it off and showed myself in a tshirt you wouldn't believe it was me. BUT, that's what a suit is supposed to do!
These have been posted up elsewhere, but I'll add them to the DB thread.
Samuelsohn MTM blazer and OTR trousers:
Next, Canali suit:
Didn't understood this haha.
This is an impressive archive.
I grew up in the days of tight tight pants, huge shoulder pads and asymetrical everything. I've been waiting for something drastic to change in men's fashion. This might be just that. Bring it on.
After you've seen this page dedicated to the double-breasted I could not remain silent. Look at this jacket made by my tailor .... his jacket is still as constructed in the late 1800s. And look at the shoulder saddled as it makes whole .. for me he remains perhaps the best tailor in Italy.
Note also the neck like salt ... even the fabric is truly vintage. E 'was created in 1940 in Biella in Italy. I bought it in Milan from Il Vecchio Drappiere. They specialize in vintage fabric from clothes ... are good friends of mine .. so for a good price with discount just ask me. http://illvecchiodrappiere.blogspot.it/2013_08_01_archive.html
To see more pictures of my double-breasted can also visit my blog: http://monsieurbespoke.blogspot.it/ And 'written in Italian but the pictures speak for themselves
What do you think?
Here are my Steed DB's from last year. Navy pinstripe Fox Flannel on the way!
Very nice! I would put the waist suppression a touch higher rather on the natural waist but that's just one of my things. These suits look great.
I fashion mine a bit a bit military, the fairly narrow lapel, high waist and button placement is reminiscent of a Royal Navy officers uniform. It's a kind of style Savile Row military tailors do a lot and it's often worn by former RN officers. Of course I can make up with a wider lapel but this is how I like my own DBs generally.
On my DB's I had made in Hong Kong they are all nipped a bit above the natural waist. These days I prefer the more natural aspect of having the suppression on my actual waist. The DB you posted does look quite nice though!
Thank you. Do you notice a big quality difference from Hong Kong? Who made for you there?
look at this double-breasted ... how does it look?
