    Thanks for the feedback. I feel the same way looking at pictures, and this was the one area where Chris gave me a bit more discretion / inquired whether or not I was comfortable with more or even less suppression.

    Next up, pictures of the final suit! Should hopefully be with us within the next week, give or take, will be sure to take some good pictures for you guys.

    Did Chris have an opinion about the waist suppression? I'm curious what his eye was telling him.

    What we arrived at was what he termed "balanced." In the previous fitting, he suppressed the waist to a greater extent to test what I found comfortable. I thought the suppression was a bit much in the previous instance. So this was kind of the middle ground.

    Glad you took the opportunity to hi-jack away! That looks outstanding. That navy suit is beautiful. If you don't mind me asking, what is your height/weight/build?

    That suit is extremely flattering on you. Do you have anything else in the hopper?

    Again, thanks for sharing!

    The shoulders look somewhat soft and old school like the suits you see in those 1930's movies. Looks good.

    Seems like there's room for a bit more waist suppression. Also, the shirt sleeves are 1/8" too short.
