    Nice work there. The waist suppression is just a bit more than I would get however.

    I had the pleasure of seeing this jacket in person. The pics don't do it justice...the tweed fabric is magnificent as is the handwork.

    What Matt is not showing is the perfect collar especially in back and the extra width of collar. Incredible.

    And he paired this with Lattanzi suede shoes as if I wasn't jealous enough.

    I agree. A little less waist might allow for even better drape and more relaxed look. The shoulder width seems to suggest a slightly longer coat to make the coat leaner. Wonderful shoulder and cloth. Congrats!

    Is that a spalla camicia?

    Indeed. This is why I tend to be a fan of Thomas Mahon's tailoring.

    I believe the shirt is bespoke Anna Matuozzo.

    Fabulous jacket. Are the guesses as to the tailor accurate?

    I love the waist suppression. You guys aren't getting jealous because the guy has a good figure that he can show off, are you [​IMG]

    I find too much waist suppression to be feminine.

    Nice jacket, and thank you for taking the time to share the pictures.

    The main problem is see with the waist suppression is that it is not a good balance with his total silouette. When you look at the complete outfit from top to bottom, the main thing that grabs your attention is the waist, then the hips.

    It`s just personal taste and opinion, but I think the waist suppression in this case draws too much attention to the middle to lower area of the jacket.

    That's pretty much my opinion too. Not even '60s suits nip the waist that much. There definitely is a point where you're directing attention to what you really shouldn't on a male. Simply put, yes -- it gets feminine. Women are much better equipped to wear tight waisted jackets, because their bodies already have that natural curve to them and thus it doesn't look very out of place. I could just be pulling this all out of my arse though.

    It seems it is going for an unstructured Anglo cut.

    However, the British, of course, have the pagoda/roped shoulders to slightly counter the waist.

    The photograph appears to be a Misrach.

    Well the other thing is that the jacket appears slightly stiff and militaristic due to the waist. I suppose if you like that aesthetic, it's fine, but generally it gives the connotations of uptight and fussy from my POV. Contrary to what was said on the front page, I'm not sure it's such a good thing if it looks very structured when it's not. But that's just me.
