    This is a neat looking SC. I am horrible at matching ensembles to coats like these. Maybe IST66 will see this and offer suggestions. He is the master at this sort of thing.

    The fit is certainly snug at the waist, but you seem to pull it off with no problem. Those with more expertise in tailoring could advise about the back and shoulders. The back of the coat seems to lie fairly clean.

    I feel as it the shoulder looks a tad big, and the jacket is a tad long, there is a pretty good chance that your sleeve is a tad long if you position your hand in natural position.

    Just noticed that one of the guys only buttoned his bottom button, does anyone know what the reason might be given this is a vintage photo?




    Deets on the trousers please :)

    I really like the jacket. The sleeves are so nice and slim. [​IMG]

    Love the shoes, suit jacket seems like it's pulling a little? Odd for a custom suit.

    The coat is too big - gives off the "I am wearing my dad's old coat" look.

    Pretty cool this, but I think the tie is to wide and another belt would look alot nicer!

    I like the colours going on here, but I think the suit jacket is too short and the lapels are far too skinny, but I suppose it is topman so there's not much you can do about that

    I don't think this has been bashed enough. SB and unref have definitely highlighted the color issues, but that SC is way out of place, stylistically, with the rest of that fit. Dad jeans aside, you've got a reasonably structured coat with too many hard edges for an essentially casual fit. Also, it looks too big, but that's hard to judge with the stance. Seriously though, get new jeans.

    A very nice picture (you should probably do the second button from bottom to prevent the tie from peeking).
