    ^^^Nice bag. Bag looks too nice to be part of the rest of his attire.

    Coat lapels are cut to wide.

    The waistcoat is poor, the 'V' is set to low for that style of waistcoat. IMO

    Not fussed about the bottom button being left buttoned. The notion that the bottom button should be left unbuttoned strikes me as the wrong side of pedantic.

    Overall, the suit looks like modified RTW and not a bespoke garment.

    Material seems like a flannel chalkstripe, which looks fine.


    I think you're envious because he's a handsome guy. The suit might not be the best, but it's nowhere as catastrophic as you describe it. Ciao for now.

    What are you, a 4' something Asian girl?

    Don't worry, though. It's always hard the first time around. It gets better with time.

    Bit rich, given the way you reacted to feedback on your photo taking.

    obviously you totally missed the point i clearly made on that topic ... it wasnt the feedback ... it was the deliverer. it was VER clear that Trini, mossrocks and others gave the same feedback and i didnt react in like manner.

    However, I'm curious to hear from the European members here if their local "rules" conflict with some of these English/American rules. ... But what about the French, Germans, Russians, Dutch etc? Where is their aesthetic derived from, and do they have similar rules?
    There is one thing I am aware of: White tie is worn differently in continental Europe (or at least in Austria). Vests are supposed to extend half an inch beyond the jacket (or harmonize with the shirt cuff) and many continental tailors I know would refuse to cut a vest differently.

    Is this true? I have noticed this, but have thought it is the same as with everyone wearing their jacket sleeves too long, ie. o tempora o mores..
