    Maybe he asked for the shoulder pads to be removed pretty late into the process.

    Very nice, but I agree with these comments:


    Also, do I see braces, side tabs and belt loop here?

    It's a single belt loop for the extension waistband to pass thru.

    Thanks Chris - I thought that's what it was, but I've never really understood the purpose, if any, of that belt loop. Also, I am always a bit surprised to see braces and side tabs in one go.

    Nearly perfect other than the items pointed out by the other posters.

    I believe the maker is the same tailor he used for his previous suits which is Sartoria Vanni. The material, judging from the brand is from the Italian brand, REDA.

    Sorry for the belated relpy. Busy days because election is coming...(Of course I'm not running for it, I just work at the campaign camp)



    It is just a preference thing, Because width at cuff is close to slim look, so I thought it would be better to cut the pants at higher point.





    Wow...:happy: Thank you for your detailed reply, Despos. I've learned many things from your clothings in Made by Hand posts.

    1. Spacing of the buttons ; I haven't noticed it before read your reply and ask it to my tailor and got the reason. One time he dissected Attolini's DB Suit and learn things from it.
    Spacing of the buttons matter is happened because he applied what he learned from Attolini.

    2. Legth of the front : You're right, I checked and recognize the left front is slightly short, and height of the pocket is not parallel.
    I guess this is the first time I don't use the shoulder pad and my shoulder itself is not parallel, so my tailor or made a mistake.




    I intended to make it as a half kent style, or in other words, half strappata(2.75 strappata?) applied to double breasted.
    It could be wear as a 4x6 because lapel ends right under the middle button,
    but it looks more natural unbutton the middle one in terms of depth of V-zone(stance of buttons), waist suppression and etc.
