    It is at least double lined. Maybe triple. There are two separate pieces of wool lining, and one of those is thicker than the other and appears to actually be two separate pieces itself.

    Would love to see Señor Crust try out a Formosa. Maybe see if you can arrange a fitting with Greg? :)


    This is let down only by the overly casual pants. At least put a crease in 'em, dammit!

    Yes, do that. :)

    You most certainly may stake that claim.


    Indeed. Perfect shape for your face, Cleav.

    As if I don't have enough drainage of my net worth between BB, Paul Stuart, and New & Lingwood, you want me to try yet another drug of choice? Oy . . . :embar:

    You're afraid that it's going to look good, aren't you? :D

    Nice ensemble. Although some details are obscured by the shot here being a little silhouetted, some things are revealed. Is this suit OTR or MTM / bespoke? I ask because I've noticed on the fits you've posted from this angle and in this location that your hips appear* to be relatively wide compared to your upper body / shoulders (as with plenty more guys than would like to admit it!), and this jacket draws attention to that rather than compensating for it. Just some food for thought...

    *terms and conditions apply... i.e. I could be completely wrong and it might be the angle or the stance or any number of other things.

    Just a quick observation with respect to @ridethecliche 's fit.

    Colour matching is outstanding, with everything referencing everything else. I also think the overall level of coherence with respect to textures, casualness, city-country spectrum and so on, is pretty good. For this reason I am completely unperturbed by the shortish collar, relative lack of trouser crease, and playful sock/shoe styling.

    Nitpicking the above remains as always a useful exercise, but in this case I would say misdirected. It's a highly coherent fit, worlds away from where RTC started a few months ago.
