    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Seeing Chan next week in Dallas. Here are some shots of my latest (4th suit): H. Lesser 8-9 oz. book 306

    I'm really not too happy with the back. It's way worse than my first suit:

    What do I need to tell him to do to fix it? I've mentioned it several times on the Fresco 0520 suit, and he says it's clean. The Fresco suit has been altered twice now.

    Surprising for a 4th suit.

    I am surprised to see some of the Chan's suit here.

    It certainly doesn't look clean, but you're wearing braces underneath and it is 8-9 oz. Are you standing in your natural position? Just take it back and tell them to clean up the wrinkles...

    I think they didn't factor in the left dropped shoulder but perhaps I'm being overly simplistic. That's something MTM would've picked up on the first go around.

    I believe I'm standing naturally.

    Yeah both of us are on our 4th suit/sc and the back is still not clean.

    My size has changed significantly throughout that period - but Limniscate's has not.

    When they come to Dallas next week I am going to order a new SC.. I might ask for a basted fitting which they charge extra for, but my back continues to be messy..

    @Limniscate: got it. If a tug on the vents doesn't clear up (some of) those wrinkles, then Chan may have quite a bit of work to do..

    The basted fitting is key. Every cloth behaves differently. I can't believe you guys skip that especially when you know your shoulders are asymmetric. You can get them to try to fix it after the fact, but I suspect they can do much more adjustment at the basted fitting stage.

    I did a basted fitting on my first suit (Minnis Fresco 0520). It's shown here:

    The back looks perfect in the fitting but didn't come out that way in the final form.

    Too bad. If it bothers you, you can send it back to them for adjustments.

    In the last view the back pockets appear to be at peculiar angles. Is that something to do with the way you are wearing them?

    Has anyone had more than the usual four (?) inside pockets in a Chan coat recently out of interest?

    He lowered the fishtail on the Fresco suit and told me that high-rise trousers won't drape as well. The Lesser should have a lower rise than the Fresco.

    I had a coat made with four internal pockets. It does work.

    Is that your normal choice for suit jackets?
