    Mafoofan has as many suits as he has pairs of shoes.

    What's your situation?

    Hi Chris
    yes I totally agree , and of course I take the figure into account every time when taking my measures. To reiterate the poster was commenting on your cut of your Despos suit and how the " quarters" were too closed. Without sucking up too much I thought the suit looked fine and that perhaps the OP was not familiar with a straight cut suit as most MTM and off the peg are cut crooked. But yes I also agree with you, though it may have been through a lack of looking I could not find anything on the straightening and crookening in the technical area of style forum. It in my mind is one of the most important lessons and a lot of tailors out of preference or due to training still cut a crooked suit. Perhaps I am strong on it, however from 5 yards away a crooked suit stands out a mile. I felt this was an important contribution and is instantly highlighted by. the comment of "interesting" from Patrick to your explanation to it. He was clearly unaware and would not be alone in this as highlighted in the photo's submitted by Corbera, perhaps this explains perhaps what people are referring to as open quarters but does not explain the straightening and crookening.

    this part is not for you Chris. ..Corbera....The liverano suit is definitely more open but the front edge is not the consequence... look at the mans hips relative to the mans Chest. The emphasis comes onto the mans hips ( as with a woman wider hips allowing the continuation of our species).
    If you look at the Bespoke suit below, the coat is sitting there just waiting to be buttoned, not trying to strain against the button with each side of the coat trying to divorce each other to the hips. The not too athletic figure of the wearer is flattered as a consequence.

    back to Chris.... hope that throws some light on where I am coming from and particularly as it was in defense of your suit, through I suspect you are not in need of defending and all well respected here
    Brendon

    I've seen most of them, mostly to measure myself against the protagonists.

    I met Despos [​IMG] yesterday in NYC at a tailoring/designers forum. Very humble guy. He wasn't Jesus [​IMG] or anything, but it was cool getting some face time. To those of you who haven't met him, be ye jealous! [​IMG]

    Not a full length shot, not a robot pose, but a well lit shot of my Despos suit (Despos shirt as well).

    Nice suit. Perfect for the City of the Big Shoulders.
