    Great! Didn't know you could do that. Thanks.

    Yeah, funny how the camera makes us stand unnaturally. Some tailors will clock a customer the moment he enters the shop, not just how he poses in front of the mirror.

    It's not just Medtech's stance in that pic -- it's the distorted perspective of the photo. These pics of Medtech and Parker earlier in this thread show a better perspective:
    Dino, Parker & I on the mean (and windy) streets of San Francisco. note: I'm wearing a NSM shirt as well, sleeves are being recut approximately 2cm longer. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice.

    WIll Napoli cut suit my build?
    I'd like some opinion on whether Neapolitan (NSM) will suit my build, as it's a departure from my previous stuff. I'm not a 25 year old trying to look super trendy or fashion forward. Opinions on how it might look on the older bloke please. Any thoughts on what I should steer clear of? My previous attempts, although lovely, still don't convey gentleness and delicacy. I'd like a relaxed and gentle look (just like me).

    I won't be reunited with my camera for some time, so this pic in leather jacket will have to do for now. I'll soon delete the offending item, so as not to pollute this excellent thread.

    Two more suits and I'm out of here.

    Cheers again

    Lear

    I think NsM will look good on you, Lear. Like other Naples styles, it emphasizes a classical masculine physique: sculpted chest, muscular arms, but still soft, light and curvy. I'm short and like this look on me, but I think it also looks good on tall and thin guys. gusvs looks pretty great. As does Manton even though his NsM is leaner than his other suits. Just let Mina know your fit preferences when you meet with her.

    Yeah, the tan and blue jackets are linen/silk/wool blends. The shep check is lambswool. They're all from Mina's books. I think Loro Piana.

    Always bragging on your physique, bra... [​IMG] [​IMG]
