    I'd have to agree with sugarbutch. Why are you opposed to this?

    Nice jacket! The silhouette is quite flattering and the stylistic cues that I'd give you are the ones that you've already mentioned (sharp corners on the notch & less open quarters).
    I can't not compare this jacket with Whnay's Rubinacci ones (not saying that they're equals), did you take any stylistic cues from the London House cut or do you recognize any similarities?

    Not really, this is just MTM. Whnay's usually have roped shoulders if I recall correctly, but other than that I don't see any similarities. I asked for open quarters, higher armholes (though I will get them higher for future orders) and very thin shoulder padding (because I hate square-ish shoulders). Other than that, it's just the MTM house cut.

    Is your MTM tailor Absolute Bespoke? I have only seen this lapel shape in some of their suits

    Nope, but the cut is rather similar. I wouldn't be surprised if the jackets are made at the same place. You're right:

    The form my tailor fills out to send to the MTM factory says "Segura Taylor". Looks like the garments are made in Navarra.

    ive addressed my issue with higher rise trousers before. I dont like them on me...makes me feel like i have a short torso. As for the quarters, i prefer them opened a bit, but its not a huge issue to me if my belt is showing a tad. Maybe one day ill change my mind, but I doubt it.

    I like the colour combination, but the jacket looks like it might be a little small - can you actually button it comfortably?

    That suit looks really good, I like the colour, it's the perfect grey in my mind. :nodding:
    Fantastic tie, it almost glows in that top photo.
    Solid as usual Crusty! The shoes are superb though :slayer:

    Fuzzy Wednesday - cashmere in both SC and tie today. Also I decided I just don't give a sh*t anymore that it's still -10C here in the mornings and decided to wear cotton chinos for the first time in months. These are brand new and have been sitting on a shelf in my wardrobe for a few months just waiting to get used.

    Mon Tirailleur, I am somewhat stymied as to what sort of business you run, that your employees would need to see the extent of a client's private parts before being able to negotiate a price - certainly not THAT sort of business, one hopes . . . :devil:.

    That guy wears his pocket square like some of the people in the movie "Casablanca". Very "Out There" and "In Your Face"!

    Claghorn: I found a tweed herringbone jacket in a local Goodwill that looks a lot like yours there. A lucky find!
