    Nothing really, other than Neopolitan shoulders in the fresco. The navy was the first and fresco was the second and the second usually comes out better than the first (not that the navy is bad, just relatively speaking). Tailors usually "perfect" the fit with the second one.

    Excellent suit!

    I might be nit picky on this one but is the tie a bit too weenie for your built? Also is the no tapered waist look what you wanted?

    Edit: I particularly love the shoulder!:slayer:
