    I like it! Nice suit.
    Don't mind the shoulders or jacket length myself.

    In respect to the broad shoulders, I've always thought that pagoda shoulders with roping can alleviate broadness.

    However, I like the silhouette.

    That's pretty awesome. I too would go for a more natural shoulder though.

    If you did the short leingth and high stance on purpose, then I think it's great.

    Nice work.

    Cheers,

    From a fellow Chaniac: well done.

    I hate it because it looks better than mine. [​IMG]

    I think my problem was that I chose 150's and it doesn't drape as well.

    You have a great suit. Enjoy![​IMG]

    You're correct about the shoulders... with that much waist suppression the suit needs roped shoulders, here they are too boxy, like a Corneliani. I have yet to see a Chan suit that is well balanced.

    Beautiful suit! On their website WW Chan quotes starting prices of $1300 and up for a two piece suit in their better fabrics. May I ask the approximate price on this suit?

    Terrific. Also digging the silk knots.

    I think it looks great. Yes, it is shorter than "rule of thumb" but who cares....the length looks good on you without being outrageously a bum-freezer. I also like the higher button stance. It's definitely a modern looking cut/fit that updates the typical business uniform with a splash of edginess.


    my thoughts exactly. The shorter length gives a nod to what Thom Brown & Michael Bastian & Raf Simons are doing, but the businessness (rather than shrunken fashionness) of the other elements (power-shoulders, no visible ankles) keeps the edginess to a tasteful splash. I like it alot.

    The jacket length and high waist are fine and actually look quite stylish, but the shoulders are a touch too wide to go with those other choices. 1/2" less either side and the whole suit would "mesh" better.

    YMMV of course. And it's still a good-looking suit! Congratulations, many happy wearings.

    I love the shoulders. I think the suit looks great. Only thing I'd change is slightly longer sleeves.

    I like it, because its stylish without trying too hard. When I see someone in Thom Browne, the look seems to scream "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!"
