thanks - it is drakes, bought from ThinkDerm
cool beans. HANJOY!
The fit, overall, seems pretty good, save for two things - the jacket is not lying flat against the back of your shoulders, just below the nape of your neck (which is a fairly minor alteration to fix), and, more troubling, the shoulder of the sleeve seems to be dimpling, which is usually a sign of less-than-stellar construction, at least from what the photos show. IRL, I hope that it may be just the photo.
In a hurry today. Haven't had time to look at other fits, unfortunately. Played with my camera outside a little. Here's my entry:
Still a little cold for loafers without socks, but I'm not a pussy, unlike UC.
I would say this fit is perfect, the jacket, shirt perfectly combine with the trousers to give a casual yet "look at me" effect....Love the loafers, no socks wear also. I must say I you have made me enjoy looking at the French flag even more
I enjoy looking at this my good man, on the neatly tied bow tie. However the grunge facial hair, not so much.
You are commenting on a post from over a year ago...I'm just making sure you realize this.
I think you may be seeing spella camicia on the shoulders (The Jort of SuSu have this). I don't notice a dimple otherwise. However, he seems to have a sleeve pitch issue with all that wrinkling/bunching at the top of the arms.
Other than the back-roll issue mentioned (Really easy fix), overall fit is excellent. I'd personally like to have seen the full fit pic, which would give us a much better idea of the suit as a whole.
Not too happy to be back at work after a long weekend

Yeah, it's indefensible, particularly in light of the warm weather here this week. Sometimes, the heart wants what it wants. But, thank you.
And, thank you, too. I learned from the fella quoted above you.
is it bad that i also knew that without having to check the OP?
Thanks Alex! I think the extra fabric on the pants was due to the combination of the pants being worn a bit too low on my hip as well as them not having been tailored yet, so the bottom of the pants were hitting the floor. I was also impressed with how it fit OTR, I'm glad I stumbled upon styleforum, or else I never would have heard about suitsupply.
Thanks for your comments! I thought you were talking about the spella camicia, but I'm glad yywwyy chimed in.
Ok, I'll make sure to ask them to fix the back issue. What should I say specifically so the tailor knows I want that fixed? I'm assuming they'll know what I'm talking about and how to fix it, but I want to be sure. Also, Is there anything the tailor can do easily to adjust excess bunching on the top of my arms?
Thanks again for all your comments guys!

You are a gentleman and a scholar. I couldn't agree more with your view on these ridiculous farty habits.
Is Timotune 2012 your SpooPoker of 2010?
