I specifically requested minimal shoulder padding and wider lapel, and went with "house style" on pretty much everything else. I am quite happy with how it turned out.

Awesome fit and look. Anyone that says otherwise probably wouldn't look half as good as you do.

Where can you get a Chan suit? How much do they cost? Bespoke or MTM?

Beautiful suit. Are the pants flat-front or pleated? The coat obscures them in the photos.

Brown shoes go particularly well with this suit, I think. The whole outfit oozes class.

Suit looks great. What material is the suit? And if you wouldn't mind sharing, how much was it?

Wow. That looks great. I wouldn't have requested that lapel but you should be happy.

Wonderful. The first picture is great! It kind of looks like you are puffing your chest out in the second picture, and IMO it doesn't look as good. In the first picture, it looks wonderful

It is a very sharp suit. Definitely a power suit. It really fits you well.

Looks a bit Saville-rowish. Would you say that that is the Chan House style? Or do I have my silhouettes confused?

You said that you asked for minimal padding in the shoulders. They don't look that soft, are they roped?

I wouldn't go for the wide lapels myself, but great looking suit
