    That should hold you over while your MTO are in the works. If I find any SS that fit me well, I will probably pick something up.

    We need to talk during bro-unch. I think I can get by with just 50R.

    I agree with you, the 50R looks good. I needed to go 50L and that's what I have in the works right now. Trying to decide on another MTO.

    I that swatch a lot. I found a jacket made with that style with loro piano merino wool from NZ in a thrift today. Sadly it was a 46L. I would have worn the heck out of it!

    It's pretty close, but it looks like the lapels might be gaping just a wee bit, and the converging pattern suggests that it's hinging on the button.

    Based on therelative positions of the bottom button and button hole, I dont think it is hinging, but the pattern gives that impression. I think it may be lens distortion/ keystoning.

    The odd shape at the right chest suggest some tightness across the chest, though.

    Try a size up and post some pics if you get chance, noodles.

    Also the polo and straw are different shades of green. Get it right next time.

    Front balance is short. Notice how the vertical lines of the jacket converge.

    EDIT: Should have read other replies before posting. Looks like others noticed this too.

    Agree with this--see how the vertical lines of the shelving behind are converging downwards?

    I think we are splitting hairs, that jacket fits ok and noodles wearing jeans and a thick t-shirt is probably throwing things off.

    Certainly possible, but it's definitely pulling at the button.
