    You must have gotten one hell of a job at 18. Why isn't your user name Mrercole?

    Haha!

    Thank GD for parents to support my habits!

    Frank is truly a pleasure to deal with and no doubt in my little sartorial brain that he is the best value in the suiting world.

    Yes. I think one of my first days on SF.

    Thank GD.

    My only issue to date is that whenever I need a suit I have to fly in for the day:)

    Here's the first commission now, after 2 surgeries to let out the chest and shoulders as I grew.

    I like this outfit a lot. Would like to see an ascot here for that Templeton Peck look.

    Frank had some pretty bad burns from an accident a few weeks ago. He's ok, and even was able to finish a suit for me...glad he's doing better...here are some new shots of the linen coat:

    I think the jacket hanging on the mirror (the tan number) is Frank's jacket. A nice lightweight wool number cut in a true Neopolitan style -- I actually used it as the basis for my first commission. Btw, NYR, the lapels on that linen number are $$$

    Agree, this is an unpadded shoulder done well.

    How do you know that it is unpadded?

    I think that patch pockets are too highly placed from the hem and look awkward. It may be better either to shorten a coat or to move (recut?) new pockets.

    I agree but I think they are too small not so much placed too high.

    If it is small, then just a little bit. I would also like them being a bit differently shaped - smaller at the top and looking more like 'U'.
    For me the placing kills it more than size and shape.
