    Show me some good pics and maybe I will bite! [​IMG]
    If we do this, you will have replaced NMWA as my suit supplier.

    If this doesn't seal the deal, there is no hope

    Yeah, the suit above is a 50. The length is acceptable, but I will be MTO longs in the future. I can wear 52 in Formosa too, but the chest/waist takes quite a bit of work.

    Noodle. It's amazing. You need to buy that off Murl ASAP. Just trust us. We're generally right about these things.

    @Monkeyface , are the SP pants alterable or do you still have to 'live with' the results. If you can pick a fabric that luxire has access to as well, you can have SP make the jackets and Luxire make the pants perhaps?

    tbh I think both are really nice and staple.

    I like patch pockets but personally see them as a bit less versatile especially on suits. I mean it's nice on a casual suit but how often do you get to wear a casual suit, but a SC won't be as good?

    I guess I'm still used to thinking of suits and jackets as formalish things and flapped pockets. I basically only like patch pockets on light weight unlined stuff, maybe a light weight worsted flannel, or a cotton or linen jacket, or something summery, but I assume it's not actually seasonal.

    Uniformity of opinion, but the advice goes unheeded. Please change title to, "Noodles's Good Natured (and Frequently Ignored) Advice Thread."
