    Suit looks good, though I agree that the jacket seems a bit short.

    Another vote for perhaps lengthening the coat, but it looks to be coming along really nice.

    Looks fantastic. Is this jacket fully lined?

    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.
