    Still can't get over the fact that Check is a (seemingly) white man and not a black kid.

    Does this pink shirt have shorter sleeves? The amount of shirt cuff poking out here looks great.

    Wotja talkin' 'bout?


    Same shirt sleeves length as before - this shirt just happens to sit where is it supposed to because it has slightly better fitting cuffs. I suspect that some of the problem is that I have dainty wrists, so they have a tendency to fall further down when my hands are by my side. In a perfect world I would like to have my shirts fit more snug around my wrists so they won’t fall down, with a bit of give in the arm to allow for movement. As a side project I want is to start replacing my OTR shirts with MTM - as I have always had issues with sleeve lengths and how they sit (dainty writs, plus lean build plus long arms equal bad OTR shirt experiences).

    If anyone is interested in my ramblings on my P Johnson Tailors experience please see my post here - http://linenforsummertweedforwinter...johnson-tailors-a-few-days-ago-i-had-my-first


    A few additional notes for Style Forum users.

    - Tom said they are working on a price list for the website. He said they will be charging for the extras as their margins are very tight. Call them with any questions.

    - Here is a breakdown of my pricing order. NOTE - AS HAS BEEN STATED ON THIS SITE MANY TIMES PRICES FOR MTM ARE ON AN INDIVIDUAL ORDER BASIS SO THESE ARE FOR REFERENCE ONLY (also see note above regard pricing). Navy Suit in Loro Piana Four Seasons cloth with AMF Top Stitching - $1375. I think, but do not quote me on this, that hand finished is $200 and 2 weeks more. I might find out next time. Lilac shirt with MOP buttons - $240 ($225 + $15 for MOP buttons), blue shirt with MOP buttons - $240 ($225 + $15 for MOP buttons), white shirt, hand finished, MOP buttons - $285 ($225 +$45 hand finished option + $15 for MOP buttons). Total for 3 shirts and suit - $2140. 50% up front and 50% when kit received. Please only use these for reference, they will be different for everyone and will increase over time I imagine. I put them up because I understand that, like me, the financial side makes a difference to if when one can commission an order.

    - If you have an questions relating to price or anything else email or call them. I have found Tom incredibly helpful and more than happy to answer an question.

    - They sell Drakes ties which if I remember are priced between $159-169. They also had Rubinacci ties and pocket squares which I think were for sale but did not ask.

    - Tom may be the best dressed person I have seen in real life. Excellent representation of the P Johnson Tailors brand. Very friendly, interesting and informative.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and looking forward to the results.

    Here's two P Johnson fit pics I've been promising for a while.

    Fabric is Loro Piana French Navy S120.

    Suit deets: SB and 2 button; notch lapel; double side vents; soft shoulder; hand finished; side-fasteners on the pants; 5-inch cuffs.

    Other deets: Shirt is an Alumo poplin button-down (light blue graph checks on white ground) from Charles Nahkle Bespoke; tie is a Sam Hober bespoke (Forest green linen and silk); PS is from H'Bone.

    And from another angle

    Photos were taken with a crappy iPhone in Charles Nahkle's shop. :)

    I walked past that shop today at lunch time. Have had some work done there but not orded any complete shirts.

    Have you got any PJ shirts? How do you think they would compare?

    Also, are you happy with your sleeve lengths?

    looks uncomfortably tight... the sleeves, and chest fitting. I bet you can't even cross your arms without popping a button wearing that jacket.

    It's called: post-BIG lunch shot. My stomach has the ability to expand phenomenally in the wake of a gigantic, albeit satisfying meal.

    As for crossing arms and popping buttons, thank you for your concern but there's never been a problem.

    Let me try again right now...

    (Crosses arms and looks out for killer flying button)

    Nope.

    No problem at all. :happy:

    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 :)
