I don't know, but not all of his suits fit exceedingly well. I thought that was kind of the point of exploration and writing about results and such.
to be fair, most of his bespoke clothes are 1st commissions (and the only commission) to write a review, pretty certain that anybody would have the same results... If he just would stick with CdL for all of his commissions I am pretty sure he would have perfect suits every time now.

A lot of his stuff fits terribly, but he bats away any criticism by saying you cant judge things by pictures. The Cifonelli suit is a fucking disaster...

You were warned...
This one as well. I heard lots of great things about A&S until I saw this.


I've seen examples on SF too of weird pattern/balance issues from them.

The Cifonelli is the only commission from him that I personally don't like. I don't think anyone noticed the issues with the A&S until I pointed them out, as the issue is too hard to see on a solid colored fabric.

Personally, I think Simon looks really good in his clothes.

He's probably a 40 long in RTW, which is (was) the"model size" in tailored clothing.
He'd probably look good in something from Joseph A. Bank

Someone commissioned bespoke shoes from G&G with green suede gator and calf skin. Almost stole my idea!

Some reader thought they could summon your Big Green Energy but they bottled it at the last minute, sad
Yep, they were too scared to go full green suede gatorskin and changed it at the last moment.
