    Oh really? I tried the Tokyo slim, perfect in collar and body but just too short on the sleeves. I wear the New York fit, which works out well but after a few washes.

    That is interesting. The collar and sleeves are perfect for me thanks to the folks that measured me at the store. Each of the shirts though had to be tucked in about an inch on each sides though [​IMG]

    They're fantastic shirts - great quality and affordable. Very consistent as well. The only issues I've had are the linen shirts, which are in the New York fit. The length of the sleeves varied quite significantly for those. Can't wait to start wearing those when it gets hot and humid :)

    They definitely are. I had an issue with frayed threads surrounding the button holes but Kamakura did everything to make things right. They've got a MTM program as well which I'd love to try.

    I realise a high-buttoning three-button triple-patch bumfreezer is not canonical to SF but there may be a few out there who appreciate a Mod-inspired look. Details on the blog ...

    2nd post here. Thanks for the feedback on my first post. I learned a ton about why my suit didn't look right.

    May I ask for the item details on this fit, Mr. Six?

    Still dreary and modest temps in Michigan, so I can't put away the flannel yet... Jacket is a tad loose in the chest.

    IMHO, the extra room looks way better than your usual suppression.

    Good point. I have gone up a chest size in the past year which makes many of my older jackets look a tad snug. I am letting out the ones I want to keep as some were taken in. This jacket is a 42 and I think the back needs to be taken in a bit as it is a tad uncomfortable to have so much room in the upper back, but yeah I agree it looks better through the waist.

    man i REALLY need to give steed a shot. Apparently his cousin lives in my city and they come here 2x per year. i should stop being cheap and make it happen. That coat looks absolutely fantastic.

    I can add my recommendation for Steed. They visit the US 3 times per year and I believe Nashville is on their itinerary every trip.

    Thanks! I like their MTM stuff a lot. I'm sure I'd like bespoke better, but ... Their MTM program is great because Edwin does the measurements and evaluates the fit. So you get attention from an excellent tailor. You get access to all of their fabric books. And you get to talk styling and tailoring history with Edwin and Matthew. Win-win-win.
