    Looks very sharp. I love the styling of Corneliani... I am anxiously waiting on one I ordered from STP yesterday.

    How much cuff would you say you're showing? I keep telling my tailor I want to show 1/2", but it doesn't seem to be enough.

    I'm showing about 1/2"

    When my tailor figures out how short he's going to make the sleeves he takes the measuring tape and measures upwards from the tip of my thumb (not sure how many inches up he goes). Are you sure the problem isn't that the sleeves on your shirts are too short?

    Hate it - you should run to the nearest thrift store (nearest to me, that is) and unload it immediately!
    Nice suit, and it looks like the tailor did a nice job.


    Haha. Yeah, I'm really happy with my tailor. He's an old Italian guy from Naples who learned his tailoring there (has a cool certificate from some tailoring house in Naples on the wall). The biggest difference-maker is that he did something to the upper shoulder area and down the middle of the back that gets rid of that roll I always seem to get under the collar. He also took out a lot of the extra material in the middle of the back to give it a more fitted look.

    I also asked him about his custom program. He said that he does 3 fittings, including a basted fitting and that his suits are all canvassed. He makes the custom suits in house. I guess you could call that bespoke.

    It's definitely part of the problem. I hope to fix this when (well, more like "if") I receive my Jantzen order. I guess I just need to keep a closer eye on how my tailor is measuring.

    Odor, can you show a closeup of the fabric? Can't really tell the two-tone from the pics. Thanks.

    That's bespoke indeed. Take advantage of it... I can't find a tailor in my town that doesn't just do alterations.

    The suit looks sharp, and the fitment looks great. Thats also a good amount of cuff showing.

    Sure. They call it two-tone because the pinstripes are a white and blue thread woven together.
