    I agree. What have your experiences been like? Have you achieved a clean line all the way from the waistband to the leg opening?
    I have preferred "tapered" before, but as of late I actually prefer "old man" as long as I have a clean line with a nice silhouette.

    Hard to tell--the appeared pretty wrinkled out of the box. Regardless, I'd probably take the pictures to the Tailor's thread for their feedback.

    Found a eidos suit whose fabric I really like, and which I think could be used as separates. Happened to have some lighter pants on, so thought I'd get some feedback. Sorry, kulata, no longs available, but the sales person said it would be about 4cm longer. I think the fit was pretty good in the body, but I probably should go with the long... too bad it won't be available.

    As a full suit

    Enjoying the discussion on pants as well, count me in the full thighs/cyclist camp. Good to know most folks size up and get the waist taken in, will try that on future pairs. I can see pulling on the ones above, also cot helped by my posture (which is improving!).

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hard to tell with those pics, but it looks like a decent fit that would benefit from a L.

    Yeap they have a classic cut. The ones from the green jacket have no pleats and there is no pocket gap. The one with pleats are awesome.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
    I am slowly rebuilding my suit collection. I realized that I downsized too quickly because my beater suit has wear and tear that are becoming more apparent.

    Here's my latest addition fresh out of thr box. The Formosa navy birdseye suit.

    Special thanks [email protected] for making this happen.

    Congrats, Noodles! That is my favorite suit and probably will hold that place for a long time. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Velvet jacket yay or nay? I have a feeling I wouldn't have enough occasions to wear it. My tailor said he's at the end of a roll and could do it for $900 bespoke.

    Yay if it has substantial peak or shawl lapels.


    @The Noodles Nice suit.

    My choice really.....I've got burgundy and midnight as choices...think midnight is the natural one. I'd probably be able to dress down a bit more with the shawl no?
