    Afraid of leaving a paper trail, huh? [​IMG]

    Congrats on the suit. Looks great. I wasn't a big fan of the color the first time I looked, but it's growing on me.

    So are you all bespoke now? Dangerous...Manton may regret steering you to Shattuck when you keep him too busy.

    Looks great Andrew.

    Do you have any shoes to where with it yet? [​IMG]


    My God AF, You've seen dozens of pictures of Andrew's shoes. None of them go with this new suit.

    He'll just have to buy some more shoes, not that he wants to[​IMG]

    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!

    Thanks VR. They are patch pockets but unlike any I've seen before. I'll do my best to post larger and more detailed shots that really show the enormous amount of handwork.

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

    Thanks Doc! I'm working on larger images.

    Congrats and enjoy!

    So which shoes were the first to be paired with the suit?


    I'm thinking either suede Malverns or Chapel in suede.

    Congrat on a commission well done! What factors did you consider in choosing Shattuck vs. other NY tailors like Raphael? House style, cost, turn-over time, handworks, artisanship...?

    Loved Frank's work that I had seen for others and he's young and will be doing this for a while![​IMG] I also like Frank's bent for those things vintage, it really delivers unique goods. Also, the man makes an incredible shoulder, virtually zero padding.

    I'm afraid so. I already picked another cloth, Lesser navy flannel chalk stripe..[​IMG]

    Tell me you're going to get this as a three-piece, possibly as a two-button ...

    Doc...this is a specials cloth and there's only 3.7 meters left. If I can squeeze a vest out, then yes. If not, it will be a trim, high button stance DB.

    It's not "Lesser is morer"?

    Very nice - a well executed and highly individual suit.

    Do you have pictures of the trousers without coat from the rear as well to share? This is a neglected aspect of fit. What about the interior - always interesting to see this - lining colour/style and pockets.
