    I like this one a lot actually, who made this, someone English I assume?

    edit: Actually I am going to guess Huntsman just because it's very structured single button suit

    Is that pinned or the actual shape? I've seen many a suit on a stand achieve that result but then fail miserably once all the pins are pulled.

    Not the biggest fan. It's almost over-tailored.

    Digging the A's so far. Agnelli and the Avenger.

    It was posted by Master Tailor Darren Beaman, who used to participate on the forums but now, after quite the kerfluffle, does not. I last saw him over at Film Noir Buff's. You can do a search if you want more info.

    Too reminiscent of sausage.

    Great, but not his best. Double-breasted, please.

    Eh. I don't understand your crush on this dude.

    He, on the other hand, is absolutely dreamy.

    Awesome, but I wouldn't wear it.

    [​IMG]
    Also awesome, but I don't think you should be allowed to nominate suits made by your own tailor.

    The jacket that launched a thousand AAAC members.

    Too tight, but I want to be him.

    Overrated.

    This picture of Noel Coward outside Las Vegas in the desert may not be entirely relevant to the thread, but I've always enjoyed the overall style it conveys.

    Who's the tailor?

    I believe that he uses mitsuru strano (www.strano.jp), but don't know if this suit is from there.
