Very Steedish these lapels. Hitchcock usually doesn’t belly them as much.
Yeah! I didn't ask for that much belly. I did ask for a slightly wider lapel than the last single breasted coat I got from him (like 1/4 inch maybe). Very happy with the shape though.

I hear people say Hitchcock cuts a leaner coat than Steed but I've actually gotten a more draped coat from him than Steed.

I’ve got a blue linen. View attachment 2140201 And a blue wool silk linen. View attachment 2140203
A blue cotton could be sweet though. Good idea.
What is the end goal of buying multiple suits in different iterations of blue? What about a grey or green sport coat, or a tan linen or cotton suit? Variety is the spice of life.

Also, blue is very formal from my point of view. How do your coworkers dress and how do they perceive you?

First ever bespoke project.

Not the best pictures but just had a first fitting for a SC made with the LL Ultimate Blazer.

A few adjustments are needed on the front but the back fits like a dream, so cant wait for the next fittings and final make up.

If I’m wearing tailoring, 90% of the time it’s for work and suits are still the norm in my industry and expected. Ties have started to fade for some people who try to dress their outfits down. People wear sport coats on Fridays occasionally. I’ll wear them if I just have some low key meetings or a lunch. For me, most days this means navy suit, pale blue shirt, black oxfords and conservative tie.

As for how people perceive me, I’m not out of place in a suit but I do get compliments on always looking good and have ended up introducing about a dozen colleagues to my tailor.

Beautiful cut. Fabric a bit outre' for me.

For me, a navy suit is the ultimate expression of a tailors cut / silhouette. The fabric doesn’t stand out but the cut does. It allows you to focus and dial in on the things the matter vs. ostentatious details.

Nothing beats a well cut navy suit. But if your tailor isn’t good, I understand why you’d want to distract them with crazy fabrics.

All good but lets start adding in some different looks to the plain blue textured suits.
