This bespoke is more real than others?

There are so many tailors and firms that use the term "bespoke" but, in actuality, are MTM. That is what I meant. To clarify, I've changed the headliner.

Is there a pic of the final product?

The waist suppression in this jacket is almost womanswear-like. Not a bad look if you are into teh ghey, but my preferences go to the more classic fits.

Edit - his shoulders are already a bit narrow in proportion to his head, and the waist suppression exacerbates this problem.

I like alot of waist supression but that guy has no shoulders - his hips a wider than his shoulders - just like a woman. It looks silly!

He would benefit from a built up shoulder that is extended out

A bit more shoulder extension with less slope, a bit more chest padding with less flaring of skirt--these would be advantageous. Also, the jacket sleeves are too short.

It looks much too short, but I think that might partly be because his arms are really long. Another inch should help. The suit makes his head look really big.

It's a ladies jacket. His wife needs to take it back.

Regards.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
