    As usual, I dissent. The work looks well-executed but I dislike the
    design.

    I understand the narrower cut and also the lightweightness (right?) of the fabric (and I also understand the house cut of the tailor) infact I think that the overall work is nice and well executed, but that could be done without wrinkling on the sleeves - precisely, is the trumpet of the sleeve to cause that problem and not the sleeve beeing too large to the effective roundness of the sleeve collar (BTW for those others asking, this is not the "manica a camicia" typical of the neapolitan style).

    "A narrow sleeve will crease no matter the fabric, may it be fresco, mohair or linen but also a fabric like say, linen, will always crease no matter the volume."

    I don't think so. It depends. As you may know the final result is the complessive work of the underlayer and how you work them.
    Trust me, sometimes it is possible to find a good compromise between the narrowness of the sleeve but also its dynamicity and the aesthetical form.

    "Acceptability or inacceptability", well it all depends by its wearer. As for the shoes artisans, everyone think it differents, they all have a different "school" and this is why there are many artisans doing a discrete job. But as you may know very few of them are doing something incredible and unique...that is the real Artisan.

    The Jacket would be nice for causal setting. Shoulder looks artistic, wear it in good health

    Probably the best argument I've seen in favour of tailored clothing, ever. Amazing.

    I think he looks pretty good for a 56 year old guy, I'm not seeing some remarkable transformation.

    ^ Fun fact, all the way on the right is 'Chet Haze,' Tom Hanks' son, who's a rapper. Yes, an actual rapper who actually raps on stage. No, serious. Google it. LuL

    Well that to. I'm just thinking of how clothes can be so important that he looks so nice with the suit on properly fine. Then a hillbilly with the cap on and everything, then again it seems he is going to the beach, but still. Such an extreme makeover.

    Do you know what a hillbilly is? I'll give you a quick lesson, they don't wear Mets hats, green shorts, sandals, and Rolexes.

    This thread is awesome.

    Next time I'm in Moscow I plan to sell some non-essential organs so I can embark on a similar adventure.
