    These last side picture of the sportcoat looks pretty good. Those first pictures of the suit look pretty off to me - the waist/chest/shoulder/sleeve relationship looks like they were photoshopped together from different garments. I think it's a case where you posted pictures that aren't very helpful, either in terms of getting helpful comments or giving us a taste of Mr. Green's work.

    Thank you George . . . I have always been more Hawaii than say, Housewives of [Orange County, New Jersey, New York, Atlanta] [​IMG] . In mind I am more Mencius-Lao Tzu-Confucius; in practice I follow the ways of O'Sensei.

    Looks good.

    What goes around does come around, does it not?

    From your sharing of your experiences I am planning to do a thoughts and feelings comparison of the following . . .

    ^^^^ That looks like bespoke Lobb. Does Armani have a similar service? Otherwise the comparison is not on the same order of magnitude.

    Does Armani?

    No.

    I meant it to be a comparison between good enough fit RTW made with modern but questionable innards versus, well, John Lobb Paris bespoke.

    There is a train of thought that suggests close enough fitting RTW can be good enough. I can walk all day in those Armani shoes OK . . . well, this will another thread after breaking the Lobbs in.

    Sweet

    Thanks Frank. I love her waist.

    Here's a short clip of his approach.

    Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the video clip.

    Both of those shoes are beautiful. Agree on the waist -- very nice!

    ^ Yes.

    I should give credit where it is due.

    I have heard the description "master tailor" thrown around [complete with ponytail jokes], but the tailor in the video, Mr. Rafael, to me is such a master - patient as a turtle and deft with the needle as a butterfly.

    It was he who was the cutter and maker of the black suit. The personality of the suit I have liked the most so far.

    Beautiful, NY store?

    beautiful

    nice

    ^ ^ ^ Thank you.

    I am fortunate to not need to fly to Paris for JLP.

    In fact, NYC provides all that I will need in my sartorial pursuit.

    The Perrier model is the standard JLP bespoke blucher/derby, I think.

    When the main button is higher than the waist indentation it always looks wrong to me. If the main button is equal or, most likely better yet, lower than the waist indentation the coat should even fit better and give better movement, especially if you have deep armholes. The shoulders are a bit broad; if extra broadness is needed it could be part of the sleeve instead of the shoulder. The length of the coat seems a little bit short.
