    Fabric?

    Looks that it buttons high, but the camera angle may be the problem.

    Looks nice, Frank has occasionally done a bit higher button point for me as well...doesn't look bad though.

    Does Ercoles do a spalla camica? What is his "house style"?

    Yes, but he prefers not to with heavier fabrics (at least in my case). No house style, but I think Frank's partial to a conservative Neopalitan cut in light of family heritage and his father's training. Rob can speak better to this I'm sure.

    That's because it does. Nothing wrong with that though, but not exactly in his hair's league IMO.

    From what I've seen of NYR's jackets, he does a VERY good job on a roped shoulder... I'd 100% go with those every time.

    I think roping when done subtly looks great, although I only have 1 suit with a roped shoulder

    Carlo Barbera for H. Lesser

    An inch above my navel. Works best for me here. I have a jacket where it is about 2" above my navel, which can be seen on my fashiony suit by him and one where it is on my navel, which is the navy one in this suit. I like this the best and it was the same on the one prior to this suit.


    You're looking at it in this photo. It is just clean set. Ercole has yelled at me twice for insisting on it in my suits.

    Frank also does teh drape. Here is a coworker pinching my chest:

    PB - stop doing this. Everytime I see a photo like this I'm reminded of a scene in me, myself, and Irene, and it offends my midwest sensibilities.

    ^^How does he make your shoulders? Any padding or is it unpadded with some wadding at the sleeve cap?
