    No worries!


    Well, Corcos is clearly a different cut, which is why I use (and appreciate) both.

    It is amazing that Ren and Stimpy was on children's television.

    Thanks fellas. Really pleased with how it turned out. Special thanks to @nomanwalksalone for doing another run of the Fox flannel & rushing it out to me in time for my trip.

    Looks like he was able to account for your low right side nicely, doesn't look like it's collapsing on the right chest at all. Was it that good with the lighter weight fabrics?

    The shoulder is low, which I told him not to pad. He cleaned up the sides of both jackets and unless I have really bad posture (like when the Warriors lose the finals) it falls nice and smooth.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Awesome looking jackets! Was in Sicily a couple of weeks ago myself for about a week. Too many towns to see. Favorites places were Cefalu, Taormina, and Vulcano.

    @UrbanComposition Just curious: when have a suit jacket and pents made by 2 different makers, does the tailor who makes the jacket provide you with the trim (i.e. buttons and such) for the pents?

    Cefalù is great. Taormina is amazing but I prefer Castelmola up above. Didn't hit Vulcano but we stayed three days in Panarea, which was my favorite. One week is way too short.

    The Pents were made first and all honesty I didn't even bother to ask for more buttons. I don't think they exactly match the jacket but they're pretty close.
    I'm having Tailors Keep do the Pents for the two fresco jackets and I'll have those in-hand before the trousers get trimmed.

    In Naples it's traditional to have different buttons on the jackets and the pants, since it's "sartoriale" to have the pants and jacket made in different places rather than in one factory, and therefore the different trim shows that it's bespoke (at least this is what Dionisio from Formosa explained to me).
