My fiance took this S&M suit to a bad tailor, who unfortunately shortened the jacket too much. We are hoping to salvage it for our wedding; is it all that bad??
It looks absolutely fine. Congrats on the wedding.

I would love to take advantage of the Marling & Evans sale for MTO sports coats, but I'm pretty risk-adverse, and it is very hard to imagine what a jacket looks like from a small piece of fabric. It would be great if Spier & Mackay could post a few more pictures of finished jackets. I have my eye on a few of the darker, more conservative colors right now (Navy Glenn Check, Black & Gray Glenn Check, and Brown PoW). Any help S&M?

A neo sportcoat in this perfect POW (and matching high rise trousers). Natalino has it this season and Drakes had it last season.
+1

This would be a great summer suit. I’d prefer flap pockets, but I know most will probably prefer patch. But would be an instant purchase either way.

Ok Gents. What do we want to see next Spring/Summer?
- Moar high rise Minnis fresco trews of the 9oz/10oz variety.
- Moar high rise Quest cotton trews, perhaps experimenting with texture. A more pronounced twill that toes the line between dress up/down, for example.
-Butcher striped shirts in more summer/spring colors that can be worn sans tie but a sportcoat and trews.
- Lightweight OCBDs with Italian button down collar.

Joking aside, I love the look of these new knit polos, but can’t help but think I’m not extraordinarily handsome enough to pull them off.
Eh, sometimes Derek gets a bit too deep into his "Silly iGent, I've transcended through the #menswear curtain! Behold my cotton sportcoat, jeans, and split toe derbies and despair! Waaahh silhouette!" schtick. It's just a shirt. Now if you buy it and think it will teleport you to the endless Riviera summer of 1958 where you suddenly look like a young Jude Law, that's just silly cosplay (plus spoiler alert Jude isn't in the movie for very long but he does bang a young Gwyneth Paltrow so I guess he was there for a good time not a long time....). If the fit is good the colors and textures harmonize, and you can wear it honestly, then there's nothing to "pull off" so go for it.
