    It is essentially a Neapolitan cut less the shoulder extension and front drape (Apparently, this is a cut that would fall under the Blasi school of Neapolitan tailoring). The shoulder has no padding, the front quarters are highly open (perhaps the most cutaway I've seen anywhere) and designed to show the trouser pleats. The chest features a single chest dart. The jacket was cut on the shorter side and essentially everything is handsewn except the center back seam.

    What is the effect on this on the overall silhouette. Does this make it closer to a sack suit, closer to the Neapolitan jacket with very suppressed waist (observation based on a fred astaire pic which may not be true for all), or in the middle? Would you say this cut would be more fitting to an athletic body type than the milanese since it more naturally shouldered?perhaps i should really try it on myself, which is what i intend to do, but some extra opinions/ info would be helpful.
