I think you may just have a long torso then. I'm 6'1" with long arms and the MTM coat he put on me was 4" shorter than the final length of the coat that was delivered. Said coat is 1" lower than the bottom of my bum. I think the gorge is fine - it would be nice to have an option to lower by 0.5-1" but it's not going to go "out of fashion" when trends swing the other way. I think their MTM options are sufficient in this regard, cause the gorge, button stance, and length of my coat are very similar to RLBL Anthony. My guy, Semyon, who has since left the company was even encouraging me to make the split closer to 50-50, when I was trying to have the coat a tad longer.Apart from that, the base MTM jacket for SuSu is short and has a high gorge, which cannot be altered. That is not especially flattering for the tall. So when you adjust the length and lower the button-stance, you throw off the proportions because the gorge remains the same.
Yeah, I like that suit, too, but I also worry about the lapels. I find lot of Havana's have narrower lapels than I'm a fan of.I kinda like this suit
Hopefully they bring it to Mexico so I can try it on. The only thing I'm not the biggest fan is the lapels but this could look good.
This is yet ANOTHER new Havana fit. I am so sick of this nonsense. This is the SEVENTH Havana fit now if my counting is right. Why won’t they listen and use different names for each fit like they used to??Yeah, I like that suit, too, but I also worry about the lapels. I find lot of Havana's have narrower lapels than I'm a fan of.
