    Thanks guys, should have some pictures of the finished product in the second half of the coming week. I can see why many have commented that the suit is a little short. It certainly does look that way from the front / head-on pictures. Part of this may be the camera angle, it doesnt look as glaring to me if you look at the back shot. Will take another look next time I have the suit on, I will consider getting the next suit made a touch longer.

    I agree that the jacket length looks fine from the back and side. It's from the pic of the front that it appears to be too short to me.

    Great shoulder, how heavy is the fabric? Based on this thread, I am going to go ahead and assume you only have one tie.

    Hahaha! It is 600g fabric. I only have about 6 ties that I actually wear. I have a hard time branching out with ties.


    Thanks, man.

    Something about the placement of the top two buttons bugs me, but otherwise it looks nice.

    I think they could have been brought in closer, that was the first thing that caught my attention but that's minor and easy to change.

    I noticed this, too. Overall, the coat looks really good.

    I should probably say that it is my fault. If you notice on the roll of the lapel there is a "sham" buttonhole. Frank thought that I wanted to button it all of the way up so he had all of the buttons parallel. I pointed to where I wanted them moved. :embar:

    Same here, but otherwise, looks pretty good.

    Now the shoes, that's a different matter alltogether...

    Maybe I will see you there. I have to hand him a wad of cash for another suit and pick up a trial shirt.

    Here is my trial shirt from Frank. I need a slightly wider spread and slightly longer points, also tighter cuffs. A few more washes and we will know for sure.

    I like the collar. I was there today for some alterations and saw a pile of shirtings for customers orders.
