    Well you didnt need to be a genius with 20-20 vision to spot some faults in the last fitting. Chuong resurfaced last night with version 2 - this time no sleeves, but lined. Shoulder pads removed. This time I even had pants - will wonders never cease. They feel ok but are too long. Coming along I have to say. Shoulders are back somewhere near where they should be, seems to have sorted out the length somewhat (although the front still needs to be rebalanced a little) Borrowed a digital camera, so this time the pics are much much better than last time. Look forward to thoughts and feedback.

    Besides needing to pick up the left side a little (an issue you seem to have spotted) it looks pretty solid. Amazing improvement over last time.

    Great thread.

    Looking good. You should really see a doctor about that gray mole though.

    To this untrained eye, it looks like it could be taken in just a hair in the waste area. It look a little billowy in the back (although that may just be the vents - my computer monitor at work kind of sucks), and the front could maybe use just a bit more shape around the waste. All in all though, I think it looks great. Psst...he forgot the sleeves [​IMG]
