    Here are images of my first bespoke suit which Frank Shattuck delivered earlier today.

    Needless to say, I'm now hooked for life.

    I know that my shirt sleeves are too short and not showing.

    The fabric is from the Lesser specials bunch and is classified as "donkey" flannel.

    Very nice. The patch pockets are cool.

    Interestingly, I always imagined that your head was actually a shoe. I guess I was wrong.

    I rarely see true three buttons that I like.

    Paying is the hardest part, eh?

    Why patch pockets on a flannel suit in city colors? I like the look on a 3B, though I'm never happy with the way my pocket squares overflow a patch breast pocket.

    Looks great! Love the cloth! Fantastic fit. Pix too small to see, are those patched pockets? How long did it take from measure to finish? But how about the shoes? You didn't show what shoes your're wearing!

    It's not really a city color. It's a tan/brown/gray/olive. All of the above, and somehow neither. Too brown to be really "city."

    Plus I was almost certain you had many more legs...

    Btw, I like the suit

    Would you post a close-up shot of the cloth?

    Looks very nice Andrew! The pants are absolutely perfect.

    I think I'd like the quarters a little more open. Your thoughts?

    I like it the way it is. The quarters reflect the opening above the waist button. More open quarters would look odd, I think. Open quarters with a 3 roll 2.5 are better.

    Congratulations, Aportnoy! I like the patch pockets. Thank you for the pics. ... Any chance of seeing them larger?

    Yes, I'd like a more open quarters if it was 2 button or 3-2.5 button, but I think the quarters are fine with a true 3 button.

    Very nice. Looks almost like something from another era.

    Did he rub your buttons in olive oil?

    "Even the details"”exaggerated peaked lapels, hand-sewn buttonholes, horn buttons rubbed in olive oil,

    I hadn't heard of him, but Shattuck sounds wonderful. He's a "Boxing Tailor!":

    Suit looks great!!! Does this mean you are giving up EG and JL for Bespoke shoes? Have you taken delivery of any Bespoke shoes yet.

    Texas_Jack might live vicariously through "Vanity", but I dress vicariously through Andrew!

    Superb and Thanks!
