    ^^^ Looks pretty damned good, in my opinion. Maybe it could stand to be a little longer, but it's perfectly nice as is. I don't see anything wrong with the shoulder.

    it could definitely be little longer,at least half an inch,whole inch would be perfect.

    Here is a quick picture,needs to be taken to tailor,my shoulder is sloppy so it is bunching,plus I think the jacket is too short so I am not sure I am going to keep it.It does say custom fit inside the jacket so it is slim,unusual for RLPL.

    Looking very nice! Don't see where the shoulder is bunching tho, maybe some back collar roll you meant?

    additional half an inch skirt length will be better.

    doesn't look to have too much shoulder padding, true?

    That is a matter of opinion, and ultimately yours matters most.

    I will say as it stands now, it is on the short side, but perfectly acceptable, and in fact I think the fit is pretty much spot on.

    Definite keeper in my opinion, esp. for $300!!!!!!!

    I am sorry,it's not the shoulder that is bunching,it is in the waist (because of my sloppy shoulder) I have this problem all the time.
    Compared to other RLPL suits,this one doesn't have much padding.

    I think the suit looks great. I don't mind a shorter fit, especially on a double breasted; keeps it more modern to me. I wish I had been able to grab a 40 R in something

    I also agree that it could be a tad longer, but as it is it's still fine. The fit though is great!

    quoted for awesomeness.


    DUUUUUDE.....loving the double breasted.

    i think it could stand a bit more waist suppression however.

    Great fit, just incredible for $300.

    Oh how I wish I was located in the USA right now.
