    I think all in all it turned out pretty well....agree with everyone about the waist suppression...but its more of a "fashion opinion" than an actual critique...as waist suppression is very "in" with designers...

    now you just need a tie and dress trousers to complete it....

    Effortless.

    Maybe I could suggest a tad wider pant leg for, to my eye, improved balance. Other than that, very nice. Impeccable styling, let the cloth speak.

    Wow, I love the silhouette of this. The metal buttons, cuff and ticket pocket are a bit too fussy for my liking but I'd love a navy blazer in this cut. Shows that us skinny guys can pull of the db style.

    Yes, on all points. The jacket looks very A&S, except that the boutonnieres suggest somebody from another continent. As do the buttons, of course.

    Are all your DBs bespoke? I really like the lengths of your DBs, I find a lot of DBs seem to be much longer.
