    CEP, drop your arms into a natural position and things would look better. Love the colour of the suit.

    Get Charles to make your button-down's with a bit of collar space. They'll look better that way.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Actually considering getting him to provide a little more tie-knot space on my collars, both this BD and my usual semi-cutaways; an easy fix for him.


    Ahhh; I meant 5cm cuffs; good catch. :D

    Shirts are actually pretty good. I'm wearing 1 of my 4 PJohnsons today; sky blue pencil stripes on a white ground.

    Sleeve lengths are fine, pretty much spot on.

    I agree, Patrick's shirts do not get enough press. I have a few of his shirts and all fit superbly.
    Also, some other MTM brands charge more to narrow sleeve/cuff, but my P. Johnson shirts are snap shut at the wrist, with no extra charge.

    Likewise with fabric, Thomas Mason at P. Johnson are ridiculously affordable compared to other MTM houses.

    Interestingly though, as much as I love all of the product, I appear to one of the few that didn't have the greatest experience. Mainly because of double or triple-booked appointments, and the subsequent lack of service as a result. This must have improved though as no reference has been made of this recently on SF (if ever).

    Tom showed me a light grey Dougdale Bros 3 piece with mid-brown horn buttons when I went to the showroom last Thursday. Have I caught a glimpse of your commission there Check?

    Regardless, hows the Dougdale Brother's fabric treating you? I commissioned a business suit from that book myself recently. Gotta love the substantial English fabrics.:slayer:

    Maybe... ;)


    Haven’t picked it up yet :fu: … should be getting it Friday… He did mention that a client ordered a two piece version after seen my finished commission in the showroom.

    I was actually a little surprised when I saw it, I remember it been (only) marginally darker, but I am sure I can make it work :D

    It looks great. Much more rakish than the duller version I got which is 1 shade darker than yours (if that is indeed yours). But patch pocket detailing should keep things interesting :)

    You're in trouble now, Check.

    Won't be able to suffer RTW again, which means you'll just have to keep feeding the addiction!

    Like me. :D

    Picked up my P Johnson suit and shirts last week. Very happy with them.

    Goodbye Off the Rack, hello Made to Measure. (Goodbye finances).

    Absolutely beautiful Guido. Your style is immaculate.

    I need to book an appointment with P. Johnson, just waiting for Christmas to get closer so I can justify spending the money on myself!
