    TKE - I think you may have arms that are slightly longer than average, which is causing a lot of the "it's too short" comments. Many people are used to seeing a jacket end mid thumb - which is generally ok for people with average length arms. Longer arms make the gap between thumb and jacket hem larger and out oft he range people are used to seeing. To my eye it looks fine, especially considering it is a casual sport coat.

    Congrats on really improving your wardrobe and style sense over the past couple of months. You've made huge strides.

    Constructively, I meant to say it might be better if your jacket had patch pockets. The jacket's length looks good in the picture, however I would have to see the whole assemble to be 100% sure. The fit is nice and I love the lapel!

    Thanks! I love the jacket as a suit jacket, but like you said, it doesn't work as is as a SC.

    Eye-catching tie Citan. Do you also own a Caruso jacket? The cut fits you beautifully, accentuating your silhouette.

    Butler and Victor are two posters who seemingly have a giant mansion full of bespoke stuff.

    I only own this suit though I would like another. Debating if I should go up a size though. This jacket could be let out in the back along the lower back above the vents, it pulls a little there and leads it to look a little tight. Blame my ass. Thanks for the comment!

    Really? It looks like pool table felt. Frankly, that would be pretty cool.

    Lets pretend it is raw felt that I had made up bespoke.




    Naw seriously it is raw silk but likely not the best quality hence the felty appearance :embar:

    Someone needs to commision a pool table felt suit/SC/overcoat. I think Butler could pull it off.
