Hello SFers, I've been lurking around for a while now and after reading pages of collective wisdom
about suits here, went ahead and got my first bespoke piece done. Thought it might to worth it to get some feedback, even though I have just this one pic. Thanks to SF for all the help- owe you guys big time! P.S. At the time this picture was taken, I had been suited up for 14+ hours. Don't ask why- its something about long-a** Indian weddings. http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/6303/picture163m.jpg http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/4869/picture162n.jpg

Sorry about that. Imageshack is throwing up some error when asked to zoom.

Very cool. No belt?

Not sure if it's just me but the shoulders look a little too big and so does the sleeve diameter. Maybe it would look different if it was buttoned the way it should be when you aren't sitting.

The trousers fitted perfectly so skipped the belt.

I had the shoulders altered thrice before I found them acceptable. Sleeve diameter I didn't think about- although it seems on the baggy side now that you've mentioned it.

Even when trousers do fit perfectly, I just love pairing my shoes with a belt.

Another new poster - look at the pictures others have posted to seek comment upon new acquisitions. Then emulate - these are useless.
