    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Suit is fully-canvassed and fabric is navy blue Zegna Trofeo. p/s: Pardon the creases, suit could've used some steaming.

    Usually these threads are a nightmare but yours is good. My preference is for sidevents and it appears that the button is pulling a touch but otherwise great fit. Congrats on the purchase.

    Are the shoulders just a bit too wide? It's hard to tell from the pics. Otherwise, nice suit! Are you going to let us know who made it?

    I very much like the center vent- it is classic Americana and I think far less trendy than side vents.

    That's not to say I;m not a fan of side vents, though.

    Looks great.

    Maker? Cloth?

    Suit looks good for first attempt at bespoke. Very good. Quite a change from the various other diasters that we have been accustomed to look for.

    There was another forumite who has used Iris Tailor with good result.

    Yeah, this is pretty damned nice. The back is great - nice and clean.

    I think you could do with a little more room in the waist; I think it's pulling a bit and it's causing the lapels to belly out a little.

    It appears you might have a slightly dropped right shoulder and I'm not sure they accounted for that all that well.

    But still, 95%. A solid A.

    It looks good, but I'll second that there's a shade more waist suppression than I like. That said that Iris tailor seems to add more waist suppression than I like for most of the suits I've seen and in my personal experience.

    This makes me excited though! I am traveling back to Singapore for a week and can't wait to fire off my latest commissions with Iris once I return.

    I think it looks pretty nice overall - but is the point where the lapels meet a bit off? The left side seems rolled quite a bit farther than the right - it feel to me like the right lapel's roll should go just a bit lower.

    Perhaps this 'illusion' could've been caused by the askew-ed position of my tie?

    .


    Well are they or aren't they? They look a bit wide and from the back there is fabric bunching up under both armpits. The fabric bunching could be from the cut there, could be the jacket needs steamed, or could be shoulders are too wide. My hunch is that if the shoulders were slightly narrower the fabric bunching would be gone.

    I like how the suits fit on you as well. Everything seems to fit pretty nicely.

    The back is surprisingly neat and clean. Well-shaped lower back, no ripples up top and no pulling on the vent that I can discern. Like others, I prefer double-vented, but this is an example of a well-executed single vent.
