    Sorry, no.
    I don't want to recommend anyone on the internet anymore, go out to find by yourself.

    I think It is better for me not to suggest any tailor on the internet too.

    I have enough suit now and do not plan to make more in near future.

    I look for few minutes and even used the photo edit software to check, and I don't think it has real drop shoulder problem. I think the jacket cutting and style is ok, yes, it can be fine tuned, but for the first suit made from a new tailor, I think it is acceptable. However, I agreed with Car that it is the trousers really need to be remake.

    Thanks for your comment on the suit and use a professional photo edit software to check it. [​IMG]
    But this is not the first suit I made in this shop

    Haha, just one, but after one suit it is better for the tailor to know my taste

    To be fair, Kenny did you give feedbacks to your tailor after wearing the first suit?

    IMO, and as said by senior members fishball and car, there are no serious problems for the jacket you posted. I think the trousers however appear too long (excessive breaks at the shoes) and the crotch seems tight at the rear, thus probably resulting an awful drape / "waves" looking at your back.

    Can you feel a big difference when wearing a canvass jacket / vest than to a fused one?

    Hi BigRock,
    A very good point.
    May I add whether ppl can see the difference bewteen canvased and fused jackets. I think yes, particularly at the folding of lapel, chest appearance ...
    Do ppl care? I think many ppl don't. These days a lot of superstars wear fused jackets on TV shows, films etc. :D
    Perhaps other members would like to add.

    BigRock,
    You can feel and find out the feature of full canvass jacket, but I dont know how to distinguish the vest
