    iammatt - Great jacket.

    My tailor in NYC suggested that we both visit Rubinacci and have a jacket custom tailored.

    this froc coat looks a bit like karl largerfield!
    Did you mean 'frock coat' perhaps? The second one is actually a morning coat. A thoroughly classical one in all respects at that: [​IMG] Since when did Lagerfeld start making these properly? As with any waist seam constructed coat, the amount of work that needs to go into these is about 1 1/2 to 2 x that of a lounge suit coat. And to get that sleek waist suppression it needs to be done bespoke.

    I think the perception problems people are having with the suppression arises from the way most people on the boards take pictures of their clothing. Most people taking pictures of themselves use the automatic photo delay on a digital camera and place the camera on a table, desk, etc. The problem is that tables are too short and the lense is angled right on the mid section of the body. Our eye level is much higher than a table or desk and if we were to see this jacket in person, or take a photo of it, we would have a different perception of the jacket unless we crouched down.

    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.


    Agree with everything here 100%. It also seems a tad short by my eyes. But I'm not the one wearing it. Different strokes for different folks. In any event, it definitely is an eye-catching garment.

    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.
    Thanks Lee. Here is a picture of the neck view that you talked about.

    Wow! That looks fantastic!

    I really love the fabric. What is it?

    You wear the jacket well.
    Looks like just the right balance of style in accord with the wearer.
    Hats off to Rubinacci. He has my respect. Is this the first, or do you have others?
    Best,
    Chris

    Thanks Chris. Your opinion counts for a lot with me. It is my first from him, but there will be more in the future.

    Common thought around here is you are not suppose to be happy with bespoke until the 3rd or 4th go around. Maybe they slipped up on this one. [​IMG]

    How did I miss this thread?

    Simply gorgeous, well done, it suits you very well. Love the waist suppression.

    There's nothing feminine about waist suppression that shows off a V-shaped torso. Those who say so are having a sour-grape syndrome and they don't have that type of body to pull it off.

    I don't normally comment on these threads because we have so many of them, but that jacket truly looks great. Wear it in health!

    It's a shame about all of those bees attacking your face, though. [​IMG]

    Sometimes I wonder why anyone would go to the extra expense of Bespoke.

    Then I see something like this coat and I know. That last picture showing the rear of the coat is really interesting. It seems to me that the collar is longer than usual, and it looks particularly good.

    It's okay, if you like that bespoke, perfect fit, quality fabric and handiwork kind of thing.[​IMG]

    I think I've seen this before somewhere.

    Is the left sleeve (your left) a tad too short?
    And no pocket square.

    One of the best jackets I've ever seen. Congrats.
