    It bugs me to see shirt, tie or top of the trouser waistband so I fit and shape the fronts to avoid this. Not every tailor or fitter thinks it is an issue. If you don't want to see this, ask for an adjustment at the fittings. Not much you can do to change the jacket at this point. Have never had a client ask to see the tie, shirt or waistband when the jacket is buttoned but they do appreciate having the fronts cover these points. The fronts are still shaped with open quarters.

    Is it fair to say that if a client wants very open quarters and a lower rise for his trousers, this is an inevitability? I get the sense that's what Mark wanted -- not necessarily for the tip of his tie to show, but a modern rise for his pants and very open quarters.

    Hrrm, well, per roughly a minute of looking at Liverano suits with Google, the only images where tip tie shows buttoned are at [drumroll]

    And less so than his.

    Almost all those are Rubinacci.

    Does that mean your buttoning stance is lower, and the jacket would be longer? Or does it mean that the quarters you cut are less open?

    Admittedly, my torso is longer and my legs are shorter. If the buttoning point is too low, I think the jacket might end up be a little too long?

    Also, the rise of my trousers for this suit while not high, isn't very low either. It sits at my waist already (as i said, longer torso shorter legs).

    The sleeves on the jackets look disproportionate to the body. To my eye they look quite large.

    As he's said, he's not infallible, neither is he a tailor:p Thus, I think his opinion is based on his experience as an image stylist, rather than a technical expert.

    Lovely suits btw!

    Haha. The body on some of the jackets look slim in relation to the sleeves. It may be my eyes playing tricks on me :)

    Didn't read the text. Just looked at the pictures. Anyway, because any tie showing there is minimal and hard to see, it's hardly going to bother anyone or distract from the beauty of the suits (the somewhat full sleeves might be more of a distraction). The issue with the Solito suit came up due to the loud tie. Perhaps, the new trend toward aggressively styled suits that sometimes show tie tip isn't flaming out because people often wear those with dark ties (like blue or black grenadines, a quasi-trend).

    If this level of effort in 'research' is indicative of your consultancy work, then I wouldn't be recommending you to anyone and it makes your putting down another poster as having 'probably no expertise in any style field' plainly ridiculous.

    That is one of the most typical Neapolitan style cues.

    NYWAYS:)

    I shall speak to Luigi when he comes about the pulling at the waist and the tie tip being exposed below the button, and I will get back to ya'll about it!:)
