Does he do all the cutting himself, and is the coatmaking/ trousermaking done on site or locally? The work looks pretty good. Always nice to learn of American tailors on here.
He does all the work himself. He has an alterations tailor on site, but his bespoke work is all him.

And yes, he has patterns for all his clients. He had to adjust my pattern for me recently

My first bespoke comission, sports jacket and trousers made by Dawid Kuklinski (picked them up some time ago, but finally, during my next meeting with Dawid, I had the opportunity to take some decent photos).

Jacket was made of donegal tweed by Holland&Scherry (360g/m), trousers - cavalry twill wool, I don't remember from whom (they appear to be black but it's charcoal, they absorb a lot of light and it's hard to capture their actual color).

Coat looks technically correct but stylistically would benefit from at least a couple of cms more in the front. But this doesn't matter if you like it and enjoy it this way.

@aristoi bcn , thanks for the input.

I'm not sure what assumptions you base your opinion on about lengthening the front but I would like to make two points in this context:
1. The crotch seam isn't positioned as suggested by the photo, it's actually a few cms higher (there is no gap visible because of the construction of the trousers in this area)
2. It's not a professional photo therefore the actual proportions may be a bit disturbed here.

Beside that, thanks again for your opinion. Actually I discussed this topic with Dawid and with the next jacket which is in the making, we want to experiment by lengthening it a bit (but I believe few cms is too much).

Aristoi is trying to explain you in very polite terms that your jacket seems - and I don't say "is" because indeed a photo can't be utterly trusted to assess the proportion of a garment - way too short comparing to your body, giving a feeling of disproportion to the ensemble. Otherwise the tailor's work is neat.

My intention was only to clarify a few points to complete the photos. I didn't want to sound aggressive.

Anyway, I'm thankful for all opinions, well noted.
