    - I did not say Armoury Team.
    - as discussed many times, Chan does not fit me & others I know IRL. Chan is still doing well, especially with the American market.
    - though they are now averaging 4 months for delivery

    This afternoon on my flight back from Sydney (sporting my newly acquired PJ suit) I noticed the gentleman next to me was reading The Australian and somewhere near the business section a small article on Patrick caught my eye - didn't get to read it but might try to dig up a copy around the office tomorrow.

    Although I like PG's Chan stuff, I was actually not referring to Chan, but to his stuff from his mystery (HK?) tailor. If I recall correctly, I liked the configurations and balance on those commissions better. Granted, this is in part driven by:


    Just not a fan.

    PG: isn't this from your mystery tailor?

    Pretty sure that is OTR Herringbone, as I have the same suit.

    - OTR HB
    - FYI the lapel width is the same between the HB & PJ suits. Talking about lapel width, this has become a SF meme over the last 12 months & what one needs to factor in is the over all balance
    - what is hard to gauge is real world fit & movement which 2D photography cannot capture. Also good photography can make anything look good :D

    GW, the overall balance looks wrong to me (in terms of the width of your shoulders and chest, and the width of the lapel). But that's me. If you like the lapel width, then that's awesome. Neither one of us will ever win that argument.

    Your PJ gear looks good. It fits you well. They make an excellent quality product at a very reasonable price. I will remain their customer so long as they continue to offer a good value product.

    Hmm I'm with PG on this one, not sure anyone would consider these lapels thin, they look pretty standard and as he pointed out, same width as H/bone which I often wear and am wearing today, I've never considered them thin but also am on the taller and leaner side than PG. I'd say the pinstripe is the best fitting so far, looks like a smidge extra waist suppression on this vs the old ones, which works well without looking tight.

    Couldn't agree more with you on these two points (and for the record, you do a pretty fine job on the second point). Most important is that you are happy with them of course, both with the product and relationship. It's just that I was a bit more enamored by these:

    Just saying.

    - I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder as the top grey suit is a 7/10 in my book as the fit/balance was still way off & there was only so much one can alter.
    - The tan suit is an OTR RL & is 1" too long on the body, the pocket & buttoning os also off as this was a 38R when I am usually 38S or 36R. The arm holes are also quite low as well as the vents.

    The latest P Johnson in Loro Piana wool/cash gun check - same block as the chalk stripe, the only difference is the pocket choices

    Guido, something looks a little off with the Chan. You are right, the PJ looks better. I don't like the roped shoulders at all on the Chan. Are the shoulders padded in your Chan coats?

    That OTR RL looks awesome though. It's funny how everyone has a different idea of the perfect aesthetic.

    The shot of the Chan is from a lower angle though, which may be changing the overall appearance. The wider lapel on the Chan looks nice. The quarters on the Chan are too aggressively cut-away I think.
