    Hello gents[​IMG]

    Inspired by TF's mood, however I know the original TF suit silhouette usually doens't go well with
    slim body like me. So I ordered a bespoke suit to my tailor. Based on TF, I changed it to match my taste and body type. Many things changed. well...I don't know it's successful, but I satisfied enough with this suit itself anyway.

    solid fit. really really solid. i think the jacket's pushing it on the short side... top of the back of the jacket is a bit tight is that unvented? How comfortable it that? love the SB + Peak lapels and the shoulders than again that's just my $0.02, I'm curious to see if others have criticisms. also, who's the maker and pricing, if you don't mind. edit - the only thing I was going to add was that I think this is more TF inspired rather than copied... TF has much wider lapels, roped shoulders, wider chest and shoulders and larger drop, lower button stance, etc... Still, I think it's pretty solid. If you're on teh short side, which I think you are then I would just suggest a lower button stance next time.

    I'm actually pleasantly surprised. Looks better than other bespoke ones we see on the site. I would have preferred a lower button stance, especially if you were trying to imitate Tom Ford. edit- Also, if you were really going for the Tom Ford look, you could have done the larger pockets and a roped shoulder.

    Wow, I am very impressed, I was expecting some cheap looking mail order suit, but this looks great. I think you hit the nail on the head with taking the TF look and making it suit you.

    Very nice fit.
    Button the top button of your waistcoat and please don't leave your tie like that. Having a longer skinny blade doesn't look cool it looks like you spent a chunk of change on a very nice bespoke suit and yet don't even know how to fasten a tie.

    than again that's just my $0.02, I'm curious to see if others have criticisms.

    also, who's the maker and pricing, if you don't mind.




    Thanks for your advice. I first tried no vent suit...I don't feel uncomfortable with this until now
    compared to other vent type.

    And this was made by Sartoria Vanni, fabric is Loro Piana, and priced about $1.8K

    Thank you for your compliments...as I wrote above, My purpose was not immitating TF look. Drawing hundreds of illustrations, I try to find what and how should I change in TF to suit my taste and body. For example, TF has extreamly lower button stance(which makes suit looks shorter in the bottom) and also, to cover it up, long coat length than other brands' suit. Than I thought who has bad body proportion and short body like me can't afford that length. So I rearranged tha button stance. Shoulder seam type and pocket was just my taste[​IMG](actually besom pocket is related with the length and button stance matter)

    ^^^^What he said.[​IMG]

    I like the cut of the vest. Very nice.

    As for unvented, I've seen this on slimmer men and I think it looks better than vented.

    That is a beautiful suit, and fits your body type well.

    Looks very very nice.

    High button stance, unvented, and a tad short on length are my only qualms

    Suit looks great. Proportions are very good. More tasteful than TF who exaggerates proportions and calls it style.
    Did you request the width of the breast pocket or is that their own standard width? Width is more Italian like, looks good, nothing negative about it. just unusual to see that from a tailor in Seoul.
    Jacket length is good for you, don't change it. You have long arms but the length works.
    One thing drives me crazy, Koreans make the pocket pipes on the bias. your jacket and trouser pockets have bias pipes.
