    Also the slant pockets. And the ticket. And the super closed quarters. Shape of the lapel seems off too.

    Off? Watcha smokin'?

    You're free to dislike the other things because this is still a free country.

    Does the tie have any color or is it a black/white check?

    Charcoal/silver, so essentially yes.

    I really like the shape of the sleeves and the way they fall/fit.

    Manton needs to take classes with you, and then blog about it.

    Agree, the sleeves are good.

    Is this a new suit, or has it been around the block a few times? There's some puckering and other things on the right lapel and chest that's bugging me. Maybe it's just wrinkles from the end of a day.

    Nine years old. You're just seeing magnified shadows on what is a very smoothly finished, slightly reflective worsted.

    I am very jealous of how nicely those sleeves hang. Good stuff for sure.

    Noir.

    But, it is very smoothly finished worsted, so it has a bit of reflectivity and sheen that picks up other shades in various lighting. It's very different from the black barathea from the Thomas Fisher book that I have for my Steed dinner suit, which is black hole in almost every light, with none of the greenish cast that I see commonly in black dinner suits.

    Anyway, I think of this a...well...party black.

    Muchas gracias.

    The color goes well with whatever hairs you have not waxed for "aerodynamic purposes." [​IMG]

    Been pondering my next commission, which will be a black suit. Your photo helped me [thanks] in the sense that I am realizing that black is really a "formal" color in the sartorial [not fashiony] consciousness. Thus, short of a dinner jacket/trousers combo, I think it will be some sort of Blazer Suit - SB, patches, casualish - just for contrast and fun.

    Still waxing and waning between a 12 oz. Drapers loose weave hopsack [my maker think it'll be too hot for the temperate weather where I live] or 9 oz loose or tight weave [which he tells me might bunch at the seat and knees if I am OK with that].

    Can you stop doing ticket pockets? They're bugging the heck out of me.

    I like 'em. But then, I have ticket pockets on most of my suit jackets, too.
