    Here are some English American fit pics. These are consistent with all of the garments I have had them make for me. Hopefully you agree that these reslts are a bit better than HERCULES'.

    Again, I apologize for the continually crumby quality of my pictures.

    Tough to say much from those photos. Right sleeve seems to have a bit of buckling at the top. I like that the lapels have a full belly - makes them look much more interesting. Over all, I think it looks quite good. I would be interested to see better pics.

    Pretty impossible to tell from the pics...

    Fit is certainly better but I can still tell they are building up too much in the chest and down towards the lats/under the arm... it's the one element that seems consistent across all there cutting and construction that they need to get beyond.

    I dont know if I follow CG.

    BTW, these are two different suits. The one on top has a coat that is a bit longer per a recent adjustment to my pattern.

    I think the shoulders look a bit too wide. Also, they seem heavily padded, which gives it a stiff look. Quarters are nice.

    The shoulders are not wide at all, they fit spot on. Also, I don't consider them to be heavily padded, although the coat in the first picture was caught in a down-pour once and the resultant shrinkage has made these shoulders appear a bit more square than my others...

    There is a misconception about padding and shoulder expression- most people assume that a square-looking expression is the result of lots of padding and that a round expression has little or none. In fact, they are somewhat unrelated; I can make a shoulder that looks soft, round, and "natural" that has tons of padding and a big, square shoulder that has none- it has more to do with the cut of the sleeve, the sleeve head wadding, and how both are inserted.

    Interesting as always and thanks! So, you're not going to rip into these fits?

    Jacket is good, but the pants look baggy.

    If you take your left hand and cross over to the right and garb a handful of the coat, along your righ ribcage, around the pocket generally, the fronts they build up are on the stiff side and a bit thick... it's one area where they're pretty rigid despite what the tailoors/vendors ask for. It's a minor point to many but since moving on to, say, Sammy, I now understand the difference.
