    In that picture of Luca it looks like his jacket has a short front balance problem. I had a jacket with a similar issue that a tailor just corrected and it hung like that. Doesn't it look like it's pulling upward at the buttoning point?

    I think because of the rave and price, we look at these things far too critically. I like the looks from Luca, and really don't see much of a problem with fit...its the human element.

    My tailor uses a carefully selected body double with my exact measurements to wear my garments for two weeks before they get delivered to me. I can request specific activities to be conducted by him in that pre-shaping phase - I always make sure he sleeps on the beach in my suit, gets a lap dance and a bowl of flageolet every morning, and slurps uni soba before bed. I found that the body heat/sweat combined with air humidity, baby oil and digestive gases produces an optimal pre-stressing of the horsehair canvas and trousers zipper.

    There's a jean seller in the sprawling weekend market in Bangkok (Chatuchak?) who actually pays local urchins to wear/play in pairs of jeans for 3-4 weeks to distress them. Tres chic.

    That's funny. My great uncle Vincenzo was Flo Ziegfeld's personal cutter and tailor out of Grey & Lampel (an old NYC tailoring house). Flo would ask him to wear his new suits around for a week or so to break them in, apparently they were a pretty close match in shape and proportion.

    Remarkable. I also have someone with very similar build break in my suits. My body double is deficient in some areas, but suffices.

    Waxing is for the genetically unfavored.

    Perhaps not, but that's where mayonnaise on French fries is concentrated.

    One habit leads to the other.
