    @Pliny that looks really good. Can you actually choose the lapel width with Kent Wang? And do you have to start off with the grey trial suit even if you want an SC only?

    Yeah, I was told exceeded their parameters for adjustments. An expensive mistake, but I knew the risk when I went in. Glad it worked out for you. Can't be the price for CMT.
    Good eye. Looks like birdseye and twill...maybe the twill isn't the trousers and he's resting against something else? I thought it was great when it was a suit.

    You have 3 lapel width options IIRC. The trial is intended to be sent back so I'm not sure why you wouldn't try it on first. All adjustments are made to the pattern based on the trial fit. So if you just want a jacket, just try on the jacket, take pictures and send it back. You wouldn't know what adjustments to make if you didn't know how it fit.

    Unless the two pictures are of different outfits, I'm voting suit.

    In SB's pic it looks like a suit no doubt. But not in the close up...
    There's only one person who knows: @GekkoInvest, help us out please! :)
    If indeed a suit, then it is a great fit.

    It is a suit from Suitsupply MTM - cut from a Birds Eye by VitaleBarberis.

    Thanks, it's a great looking suit!
    (Still a bit puzzled by what happens in that detail pic you posted, though....)
