    The back is starting to look better still a bit of tweaking to do though.

    Of course anyone bespeaking a garment can call the shots, I was just curious if it was your default offer? Certainly a military influence would point that way.

    Just need to clean those sleeves up a touch, lengthen the left sleeve and decrease that neck circle. The drop shoulder on the right has been cleared up quite nicely.

    Could use a wider lapel, no?

    To me it looks like shoulders a bit too wide, which if reduced would make lapel more proportional. At least the left one a little bit, maybe its intentional extension.

    Nah he's another drop 10 the shoulders close actually. FYI he is a 41 chest but quite muscular with a full chest.

    The lapel is 3" which is as narrow as I like to go but he saw a suit I had on and wanted a slimmer lapel.
    Usually I say a 3" lapel is narrow, 3.5 standard and 4" is wide. I don't really go widener than 4 or narrower than 3" unless the client is very big or very slight.

    I dont really have default offers for things like that. Usually I ask if people want pockets on the back of the trousers? if so on both sides? then I ask what type of pocket(s) they want, I may show them some different ones if they are unsure.

    The only default offers I really have are 1/4' pockets, vests with four welts, side vents and side adjusters although I ask about each one anyway.

    Beautiful cloth, David. Would you mind sharing what it is? And it looks great with that shirt.
