Having lurked for some time I've decided to finally take the plunge and start posting, I figured it wouldn't be such a bad idea to also post some pictures of my latest bespoke.

so um Hello all.


it's a 3 piece suit, although in the pictures I'm just wearing the coat, - just what I happened to be wearing today - you should probably ignore the rest of today's get up, I appreciate that I'm not looking all that presentable - although the coat does kind of work as a blazer.......anyway. I also took a picture of the rest of it on the hanger.... I question the logic behind that now, but whats done is done... I'm pretty happy with the double breasted waistcoat and will probably take pictures of the whole suit with appropriate shirt and shoes a little later on.











I used a tailor that seems to be quite heavily discussed here, and really I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out, they seem to have the fit dialed in well, the coat is really very comfortable and I'd say they definitely nailed it with the trousers, which of course you'll have to take my word on for now.



That ^ pic is there to show the cloth in a little more detail, it doesn't succeed in that aim particularly well, but basically it's a P.o.w check, but you'd have to be pretty close to it to see that.

I don't really get the point of your post.

You have a three piece BESPOKE but choose only to post pic of you in the jacket only.

Then you wear two shirts underneath so the fit is all off: to tight in the waist, too short sleeve, shoulder bunched up and uneven, angle of sleeves appear off.....etc.


Get your acts together next time before first poast NOOB!

I am enjoying the sass level on this good Saturday morning.

The hazing these days is really in full force.

Hope this is constructive:

1. Don't wear polos over a button up shirt
2. Your sleeves are too short
3. Your jacket is too short.
4. Your buttoning point is too high.
5. You should throw away that thing on your lapel. It looks like someone shot a snowman in the heart and he fell over and bled to death.

If not for the snarky sass that exists here, I'd prolly have been promoted at work.

Mordred, did you ask your parents before you spent your entire decade's allowance on your bespoke suit?

It is Remembrance Day; so in fairness the OP he could be commemorating WWI veterans...

1. Right. Casual or not, that just looks wrong.
2. Untrue. This is a prime example of correct sleeve length. One could even have it shorter, if one chose to show a lot of cuff.
3. Arguably, but it's the current fashion, isn't it?
4. I wouldn't say so.
5. No comment.

Pretty sure that is a rugby shirt he is wearing over his shirt. I wouldn't wear the two together under a suit jacket, but a rugby shirt over a shirt is totally normal.
