Per DocHolliday's request. As before, ignore the horrible tie knot - I had just received that "85 ways to tie a tie" book and was trying them out
Mind you I'd wear it with middle button buttoned normally, not all three. Note also that you can quite clearly see in pic.1 that I had messed up the exposure
The rippling is visible here...

I have yet to find a tailor I can completely trust in this town. Thankfully the rippling is mostly minimal IRL- the bigger issue is that the shoulder line was disturbed by the adjustment. Stelios Addendum: However, the suit itself is a beauty. 2005 model I think, someone in Canada was selling it on eBay - supposedly they had worn it only once and it really looks that way. It is also the only 3 piece Corneliani I have come across. Edit 2: I steamed heavily the shoulders which has made their line settle a good amount thankfully. MY L. Barbera/St. Andrews was not that fortunate though... Edit 3: I also want to add that while the back always gives me trouble, ~18.5 inch shoulder-width Corneliani's suits look almost perfectly fitted on me everywhere else (plus Manton pointed that out to me, also
)

Looks great...now I see what you mean about the Corneliani three-piece suits Doc. Anyone know where one can get them in Manhattan?
