    Usually, the button stance for 1-button suit should be +/- 2 cm of your waist line. Too high or low will distort waist suppression. Btw, your tailor did a very good job on attaching the sleeves, it needs to be very skillful to do the rope that clean. What sleeve head wadding your tailor used ?

    yes it works with a one button configuration but im moving to 3roll2 so will have a higher stance, i dont know what kind of wadding he use is somethig really soft, i will take some pictures of it on my next fitting of a brown linen, oh and im just back from the tailor, i pulled out some of the exesive roping, hope it end up in good results, and i could not alter the quarters, he told my i would look wide in the hips, but he is an aprentice, the master tailor is traveling, when he comes back im gonnna ask him personally

    Latest fitting with Chris Despos. We took some picture of the suit in its current state. The whole entire thing is immensely comfortable. It hugs my shoulders in a way that I can do the YMCA and the suit doesn't budge. I am not sure how that is even possible. I will give a more in depth perspective when I receive the final suit within the next week. But at this point, I could not be happier. There is still a pretty decent amount of surgery that needs to be done (in less important areas), especially with respect to the pants. But I think it is shaping up beautifully so far...

    More pics in the thread in my sig.

    If you want somewhat cheaper bespoke that draws heavily on the legacy of the Huntsman house-style, I suggest Cad and the Dandy (who are just down The Row from Huntsman). Steed have a very different house style and as others have said, if that's what you want, leave Steed to do what they do best.

    I meant using steed to copy the liverano styling. I have a tailor for the structured look.

    That sounds very, very wrong to my ears.

    That, on the other hand, sounds perfectly fine.

    For anyone doing serious tailoring, mixing various house styles into 1 coat is really disrespectful.
