    The waist looks fine, I'd add an inch to the length and change the shoulder to natural, not this knocked down "neopolitan" style. It gives an otherwise business suit a very casual look, IMO.

    I disagree. I think the shoulders are a beautiful flourish on an otherwise subdued and tasteful suit.

    I just wanted to know if anybody is interested in what I am doing later this evening?

    I knew you would. It involves a martini, computer, and Style Forum Fan-Fiction.

    Of course, but please don't be so curt. Is your martini unique? What type of computer? Specs please.

    Did they recently raise their prices? Was ready to pull the trigger and order a 2 piece suit using HS Crispare cloth and was quoted "about $2,300." Last time I inquired (~6 months ago) it was either $1,900 or $1,700 (they had a special on HS fabric).

    Ercole and Mina are roughly the same cost now.

    I don't think you're a candidate for the unpadded, natural shoulder. I think the roped one you posted looks better.
