    They're perfect for winter in the city

    I edited to add a couple more, including a chalk striped Minnis flannel

    Thank you slewfoot -- ter: regarding cost, I forget... it was made a couple of years ago. I do remember that it was a bit more than a suit in a good fabric

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    While I understand you were going for a more casual look, I don't think the completely unpadded shoulders suits your build at all. It's not very flattering.

    +1. The shoulders/chest just look off.

    I also agree that both are too short - the back looks OK, but the look from the front view is just too short.. The trouisers are hard to evaluate without being pressed.

    Wider lapels and slightly lower buttoning point would mitigate a lot of this IMO. Shoulders seem to fit, chest seems to fit. The overall visual effect now can be changed by lapel size, buttoning point and maybe some light padding and additional extension.

    I also thought the buttoning point was kind of high, and you're probably right about mitigating the look, but I guess I really don't like how frumpy and rounded the shoulders look. Might as well wear a sweater. But they do seem to fit properly.

    Very nice collection Greg - same goes for the shirt (collars). Any of those Chan as well?


    +1, although it seems that the jacket could be a bit longer.
