    Almost positive Kanye is in Michael Bastien. I've actually had some rather nice conversations about fashion with Mr West and he is a big Bastien fan, and even bigger Raf Simmons fan. Nice gentleman he is.

    Aren't those obvious pullings at the back and the sleeves are too long?

    yes - the fit of the suit has many problems.

    My coat has something closer to the silhouette I am going for with my suit. That coat was never altered and was just off the rack. I bought it at neiman marcus, its a paul smith coat.. not bad

    In the final photo of my suit I photoshoped the shoulder and had someone pin my coat + smoothed the edges in photoshop to show what I'm thinking for the silhouette on the suit.

    While I don't have the broadest shoulders in the world with a 31" waist - I definately have potential to give me a nice silhouette

    I have a nearly identical Paul Smith coat, with the hidden buttons and all. It fits the same way as yours. I found it at a flea market in Rome for 40 Euro, not bad.

    I'm sorry to see that about the suit, and I certainly hope TF can fix this situation. I'd be interested to see the results...

    Notice now how your hips look wider than your shoulders? The idea of a built-up, wider shoulder is to give more visual weight to the shoulder so that the waist and hips look smaller in comparison without having to resort to extreme suppression which will cause other problems, like the coat front pulling open as it now does.

    I was doing a lot of side deltoid lifting last night plus cardio before. On a mission to widen my shoulders & trim my waist lol [​IMG]

    If I was with the Tom Ford orginization I would be appalled at this thread and would do everything in my power to make it right up to and including a completly new suit at no charge.

    Everyone in business make's mistakes and screw ups from time to time, its how these are handled by the business owner thats crucial. Seems to me this is not being handled with the seriousness it deserves.

    If they are able to get me a new suit that can be altered to fit fantastic and they go the extra mile to make it happen and I'm truly satisfied - i will buy a lot more from them over the next 12-24 months. in all seriousness
