    I have a Polo RL blazer made of 100% alpaca that looks a heck of a lot like that. Same piece?

    My guess is Mina, or Volpe.

    Attempted to find an angle for full length shots but I was unsuccessful. Have a good tuesday everyone.

    Edit: Shirt and sweater sleeves got camera shy i guess.

    Thanks for all the feedback re-tightness of waist.

    In essence, I agree. I think I've put on a few pounds since having this made, and... Pat likes to go pretty tight on the silhouette.

    However, I'm wary of letting out anything on the current four suits unless Pat himself does the measuring and sends the jackets to his own local alterations studio. I'm not sure that another tailor, however skilled, can preserve the original shape instead of imposing his own interpretation of waist suppression.

    This means that for logistical reasons, I'll probably have to wait till June to fix anything.

    Future commissions will have less pronounced shaping in the waist... and I guess It couldn't hurt to lose said pounds. :D

    I think your jacket and trousers are way too close in color.

    I agree, but at the risk of splitting hairs, I think it's actually more like this:

    V
    |
    ^​

    It's not exactly a Y, in other words, but it reads that way for all practical purposes. That said, all my jackets all do that, too, but I'm hoping my latest commission, due to arrive in a couple of weeks, will be more X than Y. Fingers (and fronts) crossed!

    It's being made by Anthony Paranzino, aka, Tony the Tailor. You'll probably be seeing it here on this very channel in mid-April.

    No need to argue. Here are the actual lines, as traced over the photo in the 'Chop:

    EDIT: I'm not trying to convince anyone to like/not like the cut of the suit. I think it's my best-fitting suit, but I would go for a single- or two-button with slightly more open fronts if I were having a suit made.
