    I found the jacket a bit too short and the lapels a bit too narrow, otherwise, Chan did a pretty good job on this one.

    Very nice! Can't see the length too well, but lapels look fine to me (subjective of course).

    Wears OK, but I have little experience with suiting fabric. I ordered this jacket on a whim, with minimal instructions to Patrick, other than the fact I wanted a light-weight fabric for the Australian climate.
    Thanks

    I think it looks nice. I'd commission Chan in a heart beat if they do CMT....

    Why? Do you own a mill or something? They have access to pretty much any cloth I can think of... What's so magic about CMT?

    It's actually more expensive to bring cloth to many of the best tailors, particularly English. Mine will do this, for example, but the allowance is only £100. - B

    I've never achieved that nice a roll on my 3/2.5 jackets. I'm envious. I'm going to have to press Patrick on the next visit.

    Interesting about the lapel width. On my most recent suit, I increased the width 1/4" from prior jackets and lowered the gorge and breast pocket 3/4". I'm very happy with the result. I'll try to wear the suit Monday and have my wife snap a few pictures for this thread.


    Not sure why the roll on mine would be any different... I raised the breast pocket about 1/4 inch on these...

    New suit arrived last week. Super soft and heavy cotton suit in Scabal Ascona. The breast pocket is a tad high, otherwise I think it turned out nicely. I asked for swelled edges on this one. Crappy pix, but you get the idea. Cappelli woven tie. Wore it to see Patrick today.
