    Hello, Gents :)


    This is the latest DB suit I received from my tailor.
    I intended to make it lighter and softer and roomier than my previous clothings.



    * I forgot to take a picture of the back. but back is clean, so no problem.

    Congratulations, another well fitting suit. What cloth is it?

    I see that you have now chosen braces with a higher rise trouser which is a good idea. Have you adopted a fish tail back as well?

    Very nice except for the placement of the jacket buttons.

    Your thought is that the top pair are a little too high?

    Nice suit. What was the company in Korea that made it?

    Love the coat's insides. Overall, very nice. I'd also prefer equidistance on the vertical among the buttons. But I don't think it looks bad: just unusual. Kent-style, I take it, with the middle buttons just a hair outside the bottom buttons.

    Yes. There's also some racking of the jacket at the buttoning point that makes it seem like the middle row is more widely separated. I suspect that it is too tight in the waist when buttoned to two, if so, it might look better let out.

    Armscye is a bit on the large and low for my taste.

    Overall, the lapels and the lines of the suit look better to my eye than any DB I've seen come out of Hong Kong.


    It looks good buttoned Kent...if I were he, I might even try it as a 4x1 for a while before deciding to reinstitute the top row in a more proportional location.
