    The two to the right are the best fitting to my untrained eye.

    The fourth from the left looks very nice. And yes, the burning question is: Who's your tailor?

    Nice. I especially like the last one, although these might be a bit short by my view.

    The waist suppression on several seems a little extreme to my eye, but this might be exacerbated by your wide-legged stance. WHO IS THE TAILOR???!!!

    Since everyone seems to be beating around the bush, I will step forward and ask this question straight to you: who is the tailor? [​IMG]

    This is interesting as a social experiment. I wonder if everyone would have had the same reaction is the tailor's (or is it plural) name was mentioned.

    It is also interesting how some suggest staying away from asian tailors, yet look at the reaction here.

    Now, I have to ask who is you tailor as well?

    I bet they're from Jantzen. He was talking a few weeks about getting one from Ricky. Looks great!

    They all appear to fit quite well. They might be a bit short as it looks like they may not cover your backside.

    Wear them in good health!

    Suits are awesome but I think the pants (from the knee down) need to be taken in as the width doesn't jive with the slimness of the jacket. BTW, is everyone on this forum 6 feet tall and weigh 120 lbs?

    Thanks for the comments guys... so heres the clincher only one of the suit jackets, is tailored. as well as the pants - Picture #3 is a full suit from Jantzen (also the last pic) The rest are RTW with sleeve length fixed (with #1 having Extra cuff - pretty beat up suit jacket) As for the Shirt, its from Jantzen too...not too sure what Collar # it is, I just tell Ricky double button Wide spread. I have 2 other shirt collars I tried from Jantzen which I'll post later, which I think you all will find most interestingly a double button keaton-style collar I'm 6' , 140 lbs. I am just 2 months in my working life after university so I promise there'll be much more to come [​IMG]
