    Lapels are bowing outward, quarters are swung closed, creating a "Y" instead of an "X". I noticed the same thing in his pics in the S&M thread. I think it's because it's too tight in the chest/shoulders. Imagine if you were to pull the lapels closer together, the quarters would open up below the button, which essentially acts as a fulcrum.

    Nice suit otherwise.

    It looks so good I find myself looking into flights to Toronto for Easter.

    Thanks man! There’s that slight fit issue, next time I think I’m going to size up. I wish I can go easily to Toronto but that would be expensive.

    @Purplelabel

    Its a bespoke tie which length was made specifically to be worn as a "double four in hand" knot. I sometimes wear it as a single four in hand, the result being a longer back end.

    Also, the trousers are also cut full with a high rise which makes it more obvious.

    For what it is worth @Betelgeuse, the fit is still great for inexpensive RTW. Part of that, of course, is due to your excellent understanding of detail and color, specifically, your suits are always well tailored and the colors that you pair together always work. I would certainly say that you got your $300.00 worth.

    Even if a size up did not "solve" your fit issue, or created more issues, I would not worry too much. It looks great unbuttoned. I do wish that the lapels were a touch less skimpy, but I understand that opinion is mine and is wholly subjective.
