    My first experience with the remote tailoring. I think it is bespoke-like but without any fittings. Would appreciate to receive feedback on the fit of the jacket.
    I know about the sleeves length - it should be shortened by 1 cm. Also, the jacket has not been pressed yet. Hence, there are some wrinkles and what may seem a divot on the left (right) shoulder.


    banis - i think you nailed most of the comments i would have had - cleaning up the sleeves and some divoting in the shoulder. which tailor did you use? where you measured by the tailor, or did you send your measurements?

    Spoo - you appear to have a pretty broad chest so i'd recommend less waist suppression to make the jacket more balanced. as it is now, it looks top heavy.

    To me,

    that tie color just doesn't achieve a harmonious look with the rest of the outfit. Same with the pocketsquare. But the tie is a bigger offender.


    + 1. dark gray cashmere, navy or chocolate brown cashmere and you are money. if you want to do red ... then something more in the burgundy/wine family would have worked better ... especially with the P/S.

    Banis,

    appart from what you've already noticed, I think the fit of this SC is good, better than many I've seen on you.

    I think it is perfect as is. Full break would be sloppy as this is a very fitted suit. Cuffs, a matter of taste.

    Mike


    I disagree thinking fitted suits need more length in the trou (and cuffs) lest one will look as if he's outgrown it.

    The slimmer the pant, the bigger the cuff. I've got some blue PRL cord nuthuggers with 3.5" cuffs. And I'm not remotely short.

    It was an asian tailor. I was measured by my wife and afterwards sent measurements to the tailor.

    I have to say, as much as I like the M, It is not the Jag, which is my baby.

    Older Jags aren't babies. They're quietly dementing great aunts that you feel obliged to look after in their dotage because they gave you lots of sweets when you were younger.

    LOVE this suit, and the colour play with the socks & shoes. Wish I could wear this sort of suit, but I think one really needs to be fairly tall (or at least look like it, with a slender-proportioned build), for them to look as cool as you do wearing it. Well done!

    [​IMG]

    There's something quite stylized about this image/suit that I like.

    Liking these colours and fit on you PandA.

    No pic from me today; looking fairly haggard and scruffy.

    It's pretty good as is, hard to really make any changes other than the sleeve length.

    Thanks! If I were to use the same tailor in the future and having opportunity to make fittings, I would have probably shortened a jacket, asked for a different shape of the quarters and form of the patches, taken in the waist and added a bit in the chest.
    Then thats pretty impressive!
    I wanted to take measurements at my local tailor but did not manage to meet him, so had to ask wife for that.

    Are those C&J Saviles in mink suede?

    I believe they are grenson for Stuarts Choice. Nice shoe. I owned a pair for a day but they were too small and had to go back.

    Both incorrect.

    They are the re-badged G&G for RLPL [​IMG]
