    I feel that the button stance of this suit jacket is a little bit high, or maybe it's just the angle of the photo. But I want to get a second opinion on this.

    Looks a little high but it would be easier to see the overall shape of the lapels/quarters without the bottom button done.

    Blue suit... Grey one seems just a tad bit baggy on you. Re-the one-button: This likely needs a jacket that is either more or less formal in the detailing.

    I like the top one better as well but I agree the one-button looks a bit off. Is the arm of the blue one slimmer than the one on the grey suit?

    Very nice. But I think it's much nicer without the hat (on you) and the arms on the jacket is a bit short or it's the shirt that is long. Is the shirt double cuff? If not it would be nicer to have a shirt like that with a pair of nice cufflinks :)

    Take care!

    I usually don't post in this thread but here goes. Call me a philistine, but I think the shoulders on the 2nd suit are more flattering on you. It seems like SF like the more "natural" shoulder look, but I don't think that is flattering for everyone. As to which suit fits better, it would help if you could post a picture of the grey suit with the jacket buttoned (and maybe without the ill-fitting waistcoat).

    Gday Kent, I prefer the top one but I'm surprised no one has mentioned the trouser length, they look at least 1 inch too short to my eye.

    Both shirts are bespoke in G&R cotton/linen. Thanks!
    No, cloth is cashmere, which was without the selvage.
    What don't you like about the pattern?
    Can it be because of the fabric, which is cashmere? It might have probably looked different if the cloth was tweed.
    Neither.
    The houndstooth was made by Mina, the herringbone made by Davide Tofani - also Naples tailor.

    Thank you. The shirt is a double cuff. I think the shirt is a quarter of an inch too long. The outfit looks much nicer to me with the hat so I will continue to always wear this hat.

    Thanks for the clarification. I have two jackets made from Breanish tweed myself and the difference in how the shoulders settle down is not that noticeable in comparison to harder finished stuff (some Minnis flannel, too). Are you sure the wadding in the shoulder is the same? It would make sense to use different wadding in the wider shoulder you ordered to prevent the shoulder from collapsing.

    Thanks everyone for the input.

    Howdy Charlie,

    I was aware of it, but am also surprised no one else noticed. Good eye.

    Sounds great then! Just my opinion about the hat :) I think you have a small face wich is nice so the hat makes it look big on you that's why. Anyways nice outfit, cool that you dress this way you seem so young, awsome!

    This is very "autumn" like. (Favorite time of the year.) Even though it is spring, I'd wager that there is still a bit of nip in the air in Sweden--as there is in Michigan--so this is clothing that can be worn still. Nice progression of browns and golds. Good contrast of patterns (tie and shirt). Especially, I like the rich green of the sweater. It really brings out the pattern of that tie. The jacket looks well worn and comfortable. (I wish I had one.) I like the beefy zipper on that jacket. All in all, a colorful picture.
