    That is a beautiful suit Andrew. And I'm one who typically doesn't like the vast majority of suits displayed on the forums.

    I believe this looks better than your Shattuck as well.

    Love this suit - the fit is perfect.

    FWIW, I really like the Shattuck as well - it was so distinct.

    yes, outstanding. Is that the house style or did you request a certain look?

    Everything is perfect. I especially like the fit and style of the pants. It goes to show that pleated pants can look good with the proper tailoring.

    I wish I could have been among the first to offer praise. It's faultless.

    What a wonderful suit, Andrew. I really dig the forward pleats on the trousers.

    It looks perfect. The back of the jacket looks spot on.

    Still, it's no Kiton. [​IMG]

    Fantastic suit. When you try on the vest you'll have to let us see how that looks.

    Great fit!

    Andrew, that is a nicely cut suit that flatters you and the fabric is great. Very nice shoulders and drape. I didn't like the Shattuck (the suit and the man).
    I don't have any problems with Shattuck personally, but he looks like a 1980's East German hitman.

    Beautifully done- but I'd rethink the check shirt/check suit/check square combo

    Lesser 13oz nailhead gray w/ cranberry windowpane (also have vest..too hot in NYC today)


    Kudos, as I posted in the WAYWN thread-but next time give us the full show with the vest! I am in NYC too...60 F too hot for a three-piece? I say it's perfect weather to strut around without need for an overcoat!
