    You're right, the sleeve got hung up - both sleeves are indeed the same length. For the overcoat, I didn't get the sleeves altered at all, but they look probably too short because the shirt sleeves are too long :)





    Thanks a lot for the positive feedback guys!

    your left shoulder looks odd to me here. Almost like the sleeve pitch is a bit off

    Nice.

    Is that a watch chain/fob? What's it attached to ?

    Combination of two things - the light is blocked (by someone else's roof) so it hits only the top of my shoulder and the sleeve is a little wrinkled on account of the suit's being stored while on a boat across the Atlantic.

    I don't remember how the pitch is on this one but it couldn't be caused by that (how the sleeve follows your naturally hanging arm) unless it was really really off.

    It could be caused by shoulders that is way too small but that's decidedly not the case here. These shoulders are extended about a quarter inch which, for me, is perfect.

    The fit, including shoulders and sleeve pitch, really looks good. The shoulder construction is especially elegant. Really looks like NSM, no?

    Let us give thanks to Albert Hal for so clearly defining the limit of peacockery.
