    Did you change your specs from your previous orders? Looks like the shoulders are more padded and the jacket is longer overall.

    Thanks guys. Nope, no change to specs from the brown coat, except that this time I asked again for a little belly in the lapels and slightly more rounded quarters. Patrick asked if I wanted to try more rounded pockets and I said yes. I think the waist should be let out a bit since the vents are flaring. But the shoulders are the same (unpadded) and the jacket is of the same length. Funny you should ask about that in particular, since when wearing it, the brown coat feels a little shorter and w/ broader shoulders.

    Oh I didn't see the brown coat, I was referring to the Breanish and Finmeresco ones you posted a while ago. Something about the shoulders on the new coats looks different, kind of a concave effect near the armhole. Also they look longer, and the vents are kicking out on both. Could just be camera effects.

    Ah, I see. The shoulders are a little different. The shoulders themselves may be a touch wider on these two recent coats. But what is definitely different is that the sleeveheads on the two newer ones have a slightly heavier wadding, I think (if that's the correct term), but still no roping.

    Here are some pics of a 2 suits that arrived from HK today. Both are in Harrisons fine classics, 2-button, side vent, no shoulder padding. The trousers are from a previous Chan order and made out of the same medium grey as the grey suit. Both jackets came with matching trousers but I didn't bother putting them on.

    Please excuse the wrinkles, as they are straight out of the fedex box. Also, the navy suit was showing up too dark in my iphone photos, so I used a rudimentary Photoshop- type app to increase the brightness.

    These were ordered by email, with the exact same measurements as the blazer that I ordered on tour and posted about in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/266873/please-critique-my-new-navy-blazer-from-ww-chan .

    Just for context, I'm about 6'1", 200 lbs, 37-38" waist. I wear a 44R/44L in RTW.

    Would be interested in your thoughts!

    The jackets can be longer.

    That's what a lot of people said in the other thread, but I've always been a fan of shorter jackets. Both of these fully cover my ass.

    Interesting, they are making it shorter these days, often with a Neapolitan shoulder. Perhaps there is trend?

    Actually my previous jackets were longer, by about 3/4". I struggled with Patrick to get it shorter. I'm very happy with the results. I think shorter jackets lengthen the leg line and give a more sporty effect. To this end, I also asked that they lengthen the front so that the jacket looks flat from the side, or even a bit longer in front.

    The "neapolitan" shoulder is their default, but with one or two layers of thin shoulder padding. I requested no padding at all, again to achieve a more casual/sporty look.
